Jason Isbell‘s seventh solo album, Reunions, will be released on May 15.

In addition to the new LP, Isbell unveiled the lead single, “Be Afraid,” as well as tour dates that run from Feb. 29 until Sept. 13 and span headlining shows to festivals.

“There are a lot of ghosts on this album,” Isbell said in a press release. “Sometimes the songs are about the ghosts of people who aren’t around anymore, but they’re also about who I used to be, the ghost of myself. I found myself writing songs that I wanted to write 15 years ago, but in those days, I hadn’t written enough songs to know how to do it yet. Just now have I been able to pull it off to my own satisfaction. In that sense, it’s a reunion with the me I was back then.”

You can see listen to “Be Afraid” below.

Recorded with his longtime backing band the 400 Unit at Nashville’s legendary RCA Studio A, Reunions marks Isbell’s fourth consecutive album produced by Dave Cobb. It’s the follow-up to 2017’s acclaimed The Nashville Sound and features background vocals by David Crosby.

A week and a half ago, his former band, the Drive-By Truckers, released The Unraveling. It’s their first effort since 2016’s American Band.
