Dave Matthews Band Debuts New Song in Ohio
Last night’s Dave Matthews Band show in Cuyahoga Falls, OH saw the debut of another new tune, titled “If Only,” off the group’s upcoming, yet-to-be-titled studio album (check out the song in the video below). Several songs from the new album have already seen time in the live setting, including “Mercy,” “Gaucho,” and the tiny ukelele number “Sweet.” The show also featured a major bust-out in the form of the Stand Up single “Everybody Wake Up (Our Finest Hour Arrives),” which was last performed by the band on December 15, 2005.
As previously reported, Dave Matthews Band were in the studio in March of this year with producer Steve Lillywhite (Lillywhite last worked with DMB on the aborted Lillywhite Sessions in 2000) working on the follow-up to 2009’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. The album has a rumored September release date.
Dave Matthews Band’s summer tour continues on Tuesday in Mansfield, MA.
