Dave Matthews Band – Away From The World (New Vinyl) (Limited Edition) (Clear Vinyl)
NEW DOUBLE LP
New sealed copy. Limited Edition on clear vinyl.
Away from the World is the eighth studio album by Dave Matthews Band (DMB), released on September 11, 2012. The album is their first since 2009's Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King. The album's title comes from a line in the song "The Riff": "Sitting in a box / away from the world out there." According to Matthews, it relates to the dour idea that "we are born and die alone" and that "our body is our box."
Steve Lillywhite produced Away from the World, which marks his first released studio album with the band since 1998's Before These Crowded Streets. A series of failed sessions with Lillywhite led to the leaked Lillywhite Sessions in 2000 and Lillywhite's departure from the band's work.
Dave Matthews debuted the lead single "Mercy" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on April 24, and DMB released the studio version in July. The band also released the studio version of "Gaucho" in May. Those songs, in addition to "Sweet," "If Only," "The Riff," "Rooftop," "Snow Outside," and "Belly Belly Nice," were all performed during DMB's 2012 summer tour.
