DYLAN LEBLANC’S RENEGADE OUT JUNE 7 ON ATO RECORDS
“It all adds up to LeBlanc’s own quietly bracing version of honesty” – NPR Music
(Toronto, ON – March 12, 2019) – Renegade, the new album from acclaimed musician Dylan LeBlanc, will be released June 7 on ATO Records and is now available for pre-order. Produced by Grammy Award winning Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton), the album features ten new songs including the first single and title track, which is out today. Listen/share HERE.
Recorded at Cobb’s RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN, the 10-song album feature LeBlanc and his longtime band, The Pollies. Of the album, LeBlanc shares, “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.”
In celebration of the new album, LeBlanc will embark on an extensive headline tour this spring and summer, including shows at DC’s Pearl Street, Brooklyn’s Rough Trade, Chicago’s Schubas and Nashville’s Basement East. He will also perform several shows later this week as part of SXSW. See below for complete details.
