The Avett Brothers Release New Single "Country Kid," Impersonate a Priest, Bear, Superhero & More in Accompanying Music Video

First New Album in Five Years Out May 17th, Produced by Rick Rubin

US Tour Extended From April Through November, Including Record Release Show at NYC's Forest Hills Stadium, Three Nights at Red Rocks, SoFi Stadium with Luke Combs, Beach Weekends & Beyond

Today, The Avett Brothers are so happy to share the music video

for their new single, “Country Kid,” directed by Adam Rothlein: WATCH

Arriving on the heels of lead single “Love Of A Girl” – which is simultaneously climbing charts

at Triple A, Americana and Alternative radio, and has helped push the band past 1.6 billion

career streams – “Country Kid” is the second preview of The Avett Brothers’ first new album in

five years. Out May 17th via Ramseur Records/American Recordings/Thirty Tigers, and

produced by Rick Rubin, The Avett Brothers is as much untitled as it is self-titled: a collection

of songs that revealed themselves naturally over time.

Like “Country Kid,” The Avett Brothers is filled with music and lyrics that seek the sacred in the

commonplace. Recorded in Malibu's Shangri-La Studios, as well as Nashville, Mar Vista, and

the band's hometown of Concord, NC, it is an album interested in the divine unknowable,

ultimately reveling in the fun and surrender of what we cannot understand. “It’s very raw and

energetic and it sounds killer,” said The Needle Drop, on “Love Of A Girl,” which Consequence

praised for its “hopeful, free, careless energy,” and Relix called “a hard reboot for the trailblazing

Americana outfit and a studied, attentive return to its roots.”

The Avett Brothers will begin performing music from The Avett Brothers on an expansive US

tour this spring and summer, including their own five-day festival in Mexico, a headline show at

NYC's Forest Hills Stadium on album release day, three nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, LA's

SoFi Stadium with Luke Combs, and more that now extends through November. Find the full list
