Drive By Truckers Confirm New Album
Drive-By Truckers will release their tenth studio album this coming March. According to Billboard, the new album will be produced by the Truckers’ friend and frequent collaborator David Barbe. The yet-to-be-titled forthcoming album was reportedly recorded in just two weeks, which is a massive departure from their previous two studio albums.
“The last time we did a record it was like a two-year process that ended up being two records [2011’s Go-Go Boots and 2010’s The Big To-Do], and then we spent three years touring behind all of it,” stated frontman and co-founder Patterson Hood. “So earlier this year we said, ‘We’re gonna go in and just make a record in two weeks,’ and that’s what we did.”
The Georgia-based quintet released an expanded vinyl edition of their first live album, 2000’s Alabama Ass Whuppin’, earlier this year, but this will be the band’s first studio album in nearly three years.
