No, Zac Brown Band has not broken up. However, Zac Brown has teamed with songwriter Nico Moon and producer Ben Simonetti to form a new Southern pop trio, Sir Rosevelt, which will drop its self-titled debut album on Dec. 15. The 11-track offering, which seeks to fuse the sounds of pop, dance, acoustic instrumentation and Southern stylings, features two tracks co-written by Pharell Williams and two tracks co-produced by Timbaland. “Sir Rosevelt is a new chapter in addition to Zac Brown Band,” says Zac. “A new outlet for creativity, connection and art. Get ready.” Zac and Nico have been working together for more than 10 years and have been co-writers on a number of tunes, including “Homegrown,” “Loving You Easy” and “Beautiful Drug.” Ben was the recording engineer on ZBB’s 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde.
