Zac Brown, Ben Simonetti and Niko Moon have come together to release the debut self-titled album from Sir Rosevelt. Sir Rosevelt is a new addition to Brown’s musical world, a natural progression of his musical palate as an artist. Fans are not losing Zac Brown Band, they’re gaining Sir Rosevelt. Combining the talents of Brown, Moon and Simonetti, their new self-titled album is a mix of pop, dance, acoustic instrumentation and southern sensibility. “To me, that’s what makes a real artist – It’s natural to want to create music that’s similar to what we like to listen to,” Brown says. “[Sir Rosevelt] has become the outlet we have for everything outside of the homegrown roots of ZBB. I have no plan to abandon everything that we’ve ever done, but there are literally millions of different sounds out there, it’s like different colors to paint with.”
Following the release of fan favorite mixtapes Out My Feelings In My Past, Thug Talk, and Bleek Mode (Thug In Piece Lil Bleek), he builds his biggest, brashest, and boldest statement to date and first double-disc, Boopac. With the 25-track opus, he doesn’t just walk again; he runs towards a throne that’s been waiting for him all along over the past two decades. “Once again, Boopac is another story,” he exclaims. “It’s my crazy life and what I’ve been going through the past couple of years with everything and cancer. I felt like I could fight the system, and I could fight this. I did it because of God. My auntie had just died from cancer. My uncle had died from cancer too. I wasn’t going to. I grabbed my realest and deepest songs. It’s one of those records, you listen to and let roll. You don’t have to press fast forward once. By me saying Boopac, that’s some cocky ass shit,” he laughs. “It’s going to open up people’s eyes. This is going to solidify greatness. I promise you…Motherfuckers who doubted me will see.”
