Dylan LeBlanc has shared a new song, ‘Born Again’, taken from his new album, Renegade, which will be released on 7th June

About the track, Dylan says: “This song came after days of feeling blocked and unable to think of anything to write about and then I had the TV on in the background and I heard the words Born Again. And even tho that term is tied to religious meaning I thought thats interesting and i thought about my own experience of wanting to be different and tired of pain and how sometimes life literally beats you into a state of submission, it literally beats you down until you’re born again, until some sort of accordance with the universe takes place, but how everything in your past leads you up to that point. It may happen several times in a person’s life. So I tried to pack all that in as few words as possible in this song”

Produced by Grammy Award-winning Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton), the album features ten new songs and LeBlanc’s longtime band, The Pollies. Of the album LeBlanc says, “I wanted to write the same type of songs that matched the atmosphere the band and I were bringing live. So, I started with ‘Renegade,’ which was fitting since I felt myself going in a new, more intense direction with this record. In the studio, I let go almost absolutely and let Dave Cobb do his work. It was a different experience for me—how focused Cobb was and how quickly we would get live takes down. Mostly in one or two takes. Never more than three. It left me spinning at how quickly it all came together. Over the course of ten days Renegade was complete and ready for mastering. And I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you”
