Listen to Jason Isbell’s Tender New Ballad, “If We Were Vampires”

The June 16 release of Jason Isbell’s upcoming studio album, The Nashville Sound, is less than one month away.

The new 10-song offering addresses a range of real-life subjects, including politics (“White Man’s World”), pressure (“Anxiety”), hope (“Something to Love”) and mortality (“If We Were Vampires”).

The tender ballad, “If We Were Vampires,” was made available today—and Jason thinks it may be some of his best work, noting on Twitter that “it’s likely as good as any song I’ve written.” That’s high praise coming from Jason, as the Grammy-winner is responsible for penning lyrical heavyweights like “Alabama Pines,” “Cover Me Up” and “Traveling Alone,” among many others.

The new studio album will reunite Jason with his band, the 400 Unit (Derry deBorja, Chad Gamble, Jimbo Hart, Amanda Shires and Sadler Vaden), for their first project together since 2011’s Here We Rest. Dave Cobb, who produced Jason’s previous albums Southeastern (2013) and Something More Than Free (2015), was also at the helm for The Nashville Sound.
