Last week BLACKBERRY SMOKE released their hotly anticipated. seventh studio album, You Hear Georgia, via 3 Legged Records/Thirty Tigers. You can stream or purchase the album here, with a red/yellow marbled limited edition coloured vinyl edition exclusively available at UK indie stores, as well as various bundles and a red vinyl at the European D2C Store.

Across the collection’s ten new songs, BLACKBERRY SMOKE continue to embody their native Georgia’s rich musical legacy as they have for the past two decades, honouring the people, places and sounds of their home state. With the added skills of producer Dave Cobb, a fellow Georgian, the album illustrates the band’s deep respect for their roots.

You Hear Georgia also features special guest appearances from Jamey Johnson (on Lonesome For A Livin’) and Warren Haynes (All Rise Again), as well as background vocals from The Black Bettys. 

You Hear Georgia follows the release of 2018’s Find A Light, which debuted at #12 on the Official UK Album Chart. Released to wide critical acclaim, Guitar World declared the band “one of the hottest and most exciting acts around,” and Rolling Stone hailed the band as “part of a lineage that shares a love of Petty, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr., able to ride an Americana vibe or peel off a stomping riff and tie it all together without a hint of pretense.” 

In addition to their work as musicians, BLACKBERRY SMOKE remain committed to charitable work and have raised nearly $500,000 to benefit children’s cancer research.
