Zac Brown teams with songwriter Niko Moon and producer Ben Simonetti to craft an extraordinary new Southern pop outfit, Sir Rosevelt. The trio’s debut 11-track self-titled album arrives to all music retailers and streaming services on Friday, December 15th via Elektra Records – see track list enclosed.
“Sir Rosevelt” is available for pre-order beginning today, joined by an instant-grat download of a brand new track, “Something ‘Bout You” co-produced by 4x GRAMMY® Award-winner Timbaland (Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake) – and accompanied by a colorful new lyric video, streaming now.
“Sir Rosevelt” sees Zac Brown (of the 3x GRAMMY Award-winning Zac Brown Band), Niko Moon and Ben Simonetti uniting as Sir Rosevelt to create a thoroughly original new sound marrying pop, dance, acoustic instrumentation, and a distinctive Southern sensibility. The trio first came together as Zac Brown Band began experimenting with new sounds and recording techniques on 2015’s chart-topping fourth album, “JEKYLL + HYDE.” Inspired by the full-throttle dynamics of electronic/dance music and the elasticity of contemporary pop, Brown teamed with his friends and longtime collaborators Niko Moon (co-writer with Brown on genre-busting, multi-format #1 hits like “Heavy Is The Head (feat. Chris Cornell)” and “Beautiful Drug”) and Nashville recording engineer Ben Simonetti (Foo Fighters, Blake Shelton) with a goal of creating something altogether original and idiosyncratic.
The result is an album that is both utterly unique and remarkably cohesive, melding disparate influences into an innovative, up-to-the-minute brand of Southern pop unlike anything else.
