It’s been a year and a half since Gavin DeGraw released his last album, Something Worth Saving. He’s already working on new music, though last we heard, it was moving in a sad direction. Gavin’s mother, Lynne, passed away in September 2017 following a battle with pancreatic cancer. In November, Gavin revealed that he’d started numerous sad songs, but hadn’t been able to finish them. He hinted at a gospel sound, while also affirming that his next album would be raw and acoustic-driven. Today, Gavin confirmed that he’s currently “working on some new stuff,” which he promises is “coming soon.”
Check out Gavin’s photo post about the “new stuff” below:

Earlier this month, Gavin reassured a fan that he’s working on his new album:
I’m working on it man.

Although Gavin says it’s coming soon, we’ll take his “soon” with a pinch of salt. We haven’t heard anything about him officially recording the new music, and we don’t have a concrete timeline yet. But his work is promising! With any luck, we may get to hear some of Gavin’s new music before the end of this year. Otherwise, 2019 sounds like a safe bet.
Something Worth Saving
Gavin’s last album, Something Worth Saving, came out in September 2016. It launched the singles “She Sets The City On Fire” and “Making Love With The Radio On,” plus a live music video for the title track last September.
Last summer, Gavin DeGraw embarked on his RAW tour, with more dates throughout October 2017.
It’s only been 18 months since his last album, and Gavin will likely spend several more months writing and recording. We may get his new album by the end of this year, but 2019 may be more likely. We do anticipate it to be very intimate, honest, and emotional – as some of his best music is.
