Songwriter and musician Dylan LeBlanc has announced plans to release a new album, Renegade, via ATO Records on June 7. The album follows LeBlanc’s critically acclaimed 2016 release, Cautionary Tale.
LeBlanc and his band the Pollies recorded Renegade alongside producer Dave Cobb at RCA Studio A in Nashville. In a statement announcing Renegade, LeBlanc shares, “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.”
In tandem with the album announcement, LeBlanc shared Renegade‘s title track, which he describes as “the same type of song that matched the atmosphere the band and I were bringing live.” The track retains focus on LeBlanc’s singular voice, but trades the subtler, folkier arrangements of his earlier work for spacey Southern noir-rock.
LeBlanc will tour in support of Renegade, beginning a headlining trek on June 12 in Atlanta, GA. Listen to “Renegade” and see LeBlanc’s upcoming tour dates below.
