Dave Matthews Band share “Samurai Cop” from new album, Come Tomorrow

Dave Matthews Band celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2016, and the following year saw them reenter the zeitgeist via Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, which reminded us all just how much we still love “Crash Into Me”. Now, after teasing a new album back in January, Matthews and his venerable crew have announced Come Tomorrow, which is due out June 8th.

Come Tomorrow, the band’s ninth studio LP, was recorded in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Charlottesville, and will feature a duet with Americana star Brandi Carlile. Those attending the band’s upcoming shows will be some of the first to hear the new songs, but Come Tomorrow’s announcement comes with the release of its first single, “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”.

Matthews fans might recognize it from live shows, as it’s been on the setlist since 2016, but the studio version, produced by Rob Cavallo and John Alagia, captures the rich, resounding weight of Matthews’ voice, which begs us not to “forget these early days” in the song’s soaring chorus. Listen to it below via a visualizer for the song inspired by the album’s artwork.

Pre-orders are now underway for Come Tomorrow. Check out the band’s live dates below (grab tickets here), then revisit that time the band pooped on Chicago, which is a thing that really happened.
