Emblem/Atlantic recording artist Rob Thomas has announced the release of his hugely anticipated new album. “THE GREAT UNKNOWN” – the multiple-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter’s first new solo album in more than six years – arrives everywhere on Friday, August 21st.
Produced by a remarkable roster of studio all-stars including longtime collaborator Matt Serletic, Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé), Ricky Reed (Jessie, J , Jason Derulo, Twenty One Pilots), and Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta (American Authors), “THE GREAT UNKNOWN” is available for pre-order beginning today http://smarturl.it/TheGreatUnknown . All pre-orders receive an instant grat download of the album’s acclaimed first single, “Trust You”, which has already shot into the Top 20 at Hot AC radio.
“Trust You” is accompanied by an electrifying companion video, directed by Phil Harder, known for his previous work with Thomas (“Lonely No More,” “Ever The Same”) and Matchbox Twenty (“Mad Season,” “Disease”) as well as his visionary commercials for iPod, Gap, and Target. The clip can be viewed now above.
Thomas is currently introducing fans to “THE GREAT UNKNOWN” on a major North American tour. “THE GREAT UNKNOWN 2015” continues through August 13th (see attached itinerary). Support throughout the tour comes from Thomas’ special guests, Plain White T’s.
