Billy Strings reveals new album Renewal

It’s set to arrive in September.

Billy Strings has revealed details of his new album, Renewal. It’s set to arrive in September via Rounder Records, and is produced by Jonathan Wilson. Alongside the announcement, its first single Fire Line has arrived.

Renewal follows Strings’ Grammy-winning 2019 album Home. A statement about the new LP describes it as sharing “a more personal and honest perspective through his songwriting, while incorporating his wide range of influences with elements of bluegrass, classic rock, metal, psychedelic music and more.”

Strings said of the album: “A lot of people call us a bluegrass band and I don’t even know if that’s what we are anymore. You’ve got to let the song do its thing. So that’s what I try to do – write songs and let them come out however they do. I listen to it now and it’s emotional. I’ve always doubted myself, and I still do, but this album makes me think, ‘Hey, you’re doing all right, kid. You just need to keep going.’”
