The Band Perry had a sweet treat for their fans on Valentine’s Day. The sibling trio announced their new album will be called Pioneer and revealed the album artwork. Due out April 2, the album produced by Dann Huff builds on the foundation the group established with the release of their platinum debut.
“When we set out to record Pioneer, the three of us drove across the country from Greeneville to Malibu to work with one of our musical superheroes, Rick Rubin,” Reid Perry said. “Our time in the studio with Rick was so incredible because during our early sessions he challenged us to set higher goals as songwriters.”
“With that experience came the realization that we needed to take the music back home to Tennessee and have Dann Huff bring the songs to life with his production,” Neil Perry said. ”Sometimes where one starts off is not where one ends up, which is a big theme for us on Pioneer.”
“There is still so much to be discovered, so many things to be made,” Kimberly Perry said. “There’s still so much good to be done and so many songs to sing. So here we are, two years later – Marching forward. Making noise. We are thankful for the momentum of the week and are thrilled that our release of Pioneer is just around the corner. We can’t wait!”
