Jakob Dylan’s project The Wallflowers has just announced the release of their first brand new album in nearly a decade. Exit Wounds, a 10-track album, is due out on July 9 via New West Records. The announcement came during The Wallflowers’ live performance of their new track “Roots And Wings” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which aired on Thursday night.
The forthcoming release was produced by Butch Walker, who is known for working with Weezer and Taylor Swift and mixed by Chris Dugan, who has worked with Green Day. Singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne is also said to be featured on four of the tracks on the album.
“Roots and Wings” is a reminder of the times sound that the band has been known to achieve throughout the years of their career. A huge part of Jakob Dylan’s success can be credited to the ability to distinguish his sound from his father, Bob Dylan’s, music.
Exit Wounds will be the newest album to come from the band since the release of their album Glad All Over, which dropped in 2012. Although the band had taken a long break from making music, it was always Jakob Dylan’s plan to continue with his participation in the band.
“I think everybody — no matter what side of the aisle you’re on — wherever we’re going to next, we’re all taking a lot of exit wounds with us. Nobody is the same as they were four years ago. That, to me, is what Exit Wounds signifies. And it’s not meant to be negative at all. It just means that wherever you’re headed, even if it’s to a better place, you leave people and things behind, and you think about those people and those things and you carry them with you. Those are your exit wounds. And right now, we’re swimming in them,” said Jakob Dylan in a press release.
