Gavin DeGraw Officially Begins Recording Next Album

It’s been a long time coming, but Gavin DeGraw has finally, officially, entered the studio to begin recording his next album! After years of writing and teasing new music – more on the expected sound in a moment – Gavin is ready to get them down on record. Check out Gavin’s announcement below:

Good to be back at work in the studio again. #NewAlbum

Update June 14: Gavin just shared two more studio posts for your viewing pleasure:

Gavin’s Upcoming Album

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 in September 2017.

It was around that time – in September 2017 – when Gavin’s mother passed away after a battle with cancer. In November that year, Gavin spoke about the “gospel” sounding songs he was writing in the aftermath of his mother’s passing. At the time, he wasn’t sure if he’d be able to finish any of those songs or if they’d appear on his next album. We predict that at least some of the songs on his next record will touch on this tragic subject.

We now know his songs will be somewhat “anti-pop,” instead leaning into the country and country-rock genres, similar to music by Tom Petty and Bob Seger. He also says he’s been writing the songs alone, perhaps indicating that he’s heading back to his earlier roots of his first three albums.

It’s exciting to know he’s now in the studio recording the songs! Let us know how you hope or anticipate Gavin’s new album will sound in the comments! You can also catch up on all we know about the album so far here. We hope it’ll be out by the end of this year; otherwise, early 2021 seems like a safe bet. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Gavin DeGraw music news.
