Zac Brown Band To Release Uncaged On July 10, Adds New Member

With two Grammy wins and more than 50 award nominations under their belt, the Zac Brown Band has returned to the studio for work on their forthcoming album Uncaged, which is set for release on July 10 on Atlantic Records/Southern Ground Artists. The album will also mark the official debut of ZBB's newest member world renowned percussionist Daniel de los Reyes.

"It's your basic country-Southern rock-bluegrass-reggae-jam record," Brown jokes.

Influenced by guest performer Trombone Shorty and past appearances with Kings of Leon, Zac Brown tells AP that the line-up "creates a new kind of pulse within the band..." and the music is "really about making people dance." 

Daniel de los Reyes is a percussionist who's worked with Earth, Wind & Fire, Sting and Jennifer Lopez among others. His addition to the already existing rhythm section of bassist John Driskell Hopkins and drummer Chris Fryar has allowed the band to expand its sound into new R&B territory.
