After their wide-ranging 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde, Zac Brown Band announced in September that they were returning to the studio this winter to begin recording their new album, Welcome Home, a project that Zac says goes “straight back to our roots.”
In addition to the new album, which drops on May 12, ZBB announced earlier this year that they are embarking on a 40-plus-date Welcome Home Tour that kicks off on May 12 and makes stops in Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles, among many others.
Continuing the trickle down of information regarding Welcome Home, today (Jan. 30) ZBB revealed the album’s cover art via Twitter.

The simple art—which looks like an antique tin ceiling tile to me—seems to be thematically in line with a return to the band’s roots.
