Bio

Dylan LeBlanc, the Muscle Shoals, Alabama, singer-songwriter whose ethereal album Cautionary Tale was a must-hear of 2016, has announced his latest project. Renegade, released via ATO Records, will arrive June 7th

The 29-year-old LeBlanc recorded the LP with Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell) at Nashville's RCA Studio A, backed by his band the Pollies. Ahead of the record's release, the singer posted the title track, synced to a rudimentary but mesmerizing video of dashboard-cam traffic and static. Much like the vibey Cautionary Tale, "Renegade" is an immersive listen, with jangly guitars and LeBlanc's yearning vocals. But there's also a sharp-edge and swagger beneath the moody production, as he sings about police APBs and shots ringing out.

"I wanted to write the same type of songs that matched the atmosphere the band and I were bringing live. So, I started with 'Renegade,'" LeBlanc said in statement, "which was fitting since I felt myself going in a new, more intense direction with this record."

The performer will launch a tour in support of Renegade in June, kicking off in Atlanta at the Earl. This week he makes a string of appearances at South by Southwest in Austin, including the Luck Reunion on March 14th.
