Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit are back with their new album Reunions – out May 15th – and produced by celebrated producer and long time collaborator Dave Cobb.
Now, the band have unveiled their new track ‘What’ve I Done to Help’….
“Success is a very nice problem to have but I think ‘how do I get through it and not lose what made me good in the first place?’” Jason says. “A lot of these songs and the overall concept of this album is how do I progress as an artist and a human being and still keep that same hunger that I had when I wasn’t quite so far along in either respect.” Isbell’s solution: to go back in time with his hard-gained knowledge.
The result is a seamless collection of ten new songs that delve into relationships with lovers, friends, children, parents, and one’s self. There are rousing anthems that will have stadiums singing along, lyrical standouts that highlight some of Isbell’s best writing to date, moving looks at youth and childhood, a deep dive into the challenges of relationships, and deeply personal songs about alcoholism and parenthood.
At the back end of last year, Isbell sold out his inaugural, self-curated ShoalsFest, that took place in October in Muscle Shoals, AL, with performances from Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples & Amanda Shires, in addition to Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit. The band also performed a seven-night sold out run at Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium, making it the longest stand the group has had at the venue to date.
