NEW ALBUM OUT OF BODY DUE OUT AUGUST 28
GRAMMY® Award-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE have released “Who Am I”, the fourth song off their highly anticipated new album, Out of Body. The emotionally charged track is available to stream and download starting today HERE. Out of Body is due for release on August 28, 2020 via Elektra Records/Centricity Music, and is available for pre-order and pre-save now HERE. Limited edition merch bundles and experiences are available exclusively through NEEDTOBREATHE’s online store HERE.
“Probably the biggest and most constant struggle I have in my life is being able to accept love. At some place in my core, it’s hard for me to believe that I’m ever worthy of it, or somehow deserve it,” shared vocalist Bear Rinehart. “‘Who Am I’ is a song about the fight to accept, embrace, and trust that the greatest love requires nothing in return.”
NEEDTOBREATHE introduced Out of Body in April with the release of anthemic lead single “Hang On” and ballad “Seasons”. American Songwriter claimed, “‘Hang On’ could easily be the next summertime sing-along,” and E! News praised the track as “The sort of anthem we all need right about now.” “Hang On” has already soundtracked a nationalcampaign for the PGA Tour’s Impact Initiative and been featured in the season finale of American Idol. Watch a stripped-back performance of the song HERE.
Earlier this month, NEEDTOBREATHE launched the album’s pre-order, and shared its third track “Survival” (feat. Drew & Ellie Holcomb)”. Watch the band perform the song alongside the Holcombs and Colony House guitarist Scott Mills HERE. Fans who pre-order Out of Body will receive immediate downloads of all four tracks the band has unveiled.
On Out of Body, the platinum-certified trio—Bear Rinehart [vocals, guitar], Seth Bolt [bass, vocals], and Josh Lovelace [keys, vocals]—examine life, family, and friends through a youthful prism. The guys take stock of not only two decades as a band, but also first-time fatherhood and the future over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy. After spending a week at a beach house in Charleston to gather thoughts and ideas, the trio headed to Nashville, to record alongside producers Cason Cooley and Jeremy Lutito. As they cultivated a team atmosphere, the songs organically came to life.
Out of Body follows 2016’s H A R D L O V E, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Current Album Sales Chart, and featured the gold-certified title track “Hard Love”.
GRAMMY® Award-nominated NEEDTOBREATHE have mounted a steady ascent to the top of the charts and packed arenas everywhere. Formed in 1998, the group attracted a loyal grassroots following with their full-length debut Daylight  and its follow-up The Heat . Two years later, The Outsiders became their first Top 20 entry on the Billboard Top 200 before eventually going gold. During 2011, The Reckoning landed at #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart and #6 on the Top 200. In addition to bowing at #3 on the Top 200, 2014’s Rivers in the Wasteland yielded the platinum-selling Hot 100 hit “Brother” [feat. Gavin DeGraw] and “Multiplied,” which garnered their first GRAMMY® nod. Meanwhile, H A R D L O V E  marked their highest chart bow yet, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top Current Album Sales Chart, as the title track “Hard Love” [feat. Andra Day] scored a gold plaque. Along the way, they headlined and sold out iconic venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Greek Theatre, and Ryman Auditorium, to name a few. The group picked up a pair of nominations at the Billboard Music Awards, and received praise from People, Rolling Stone, Forbes, and more. Now, NEEDTOBREATHE reflect the freedom of youth on their seventh full-length offering, Out of Body [Elektra Records/Centricity Music] over a rich soundtrack of soulful rock with stadium-size scope and poetic intimacy.
