Zac Brown Band have released another single from their upcoming album Welcome Home, along with a lyric video. I love “My Old Man” and “Real Thing” but I think “Family Table” might be my favourite of the new album so far. The song is an ode to a piece of furniture, as well as a heartfelt metaphor for the comfort of family. The lyrics echo this sentiment as ZBB sing, “it’s the cornerstone that held us all up”.
Not only do the lyrics in the song offer a warm and familiar feeling of community, the melody is very conventional of Zac Brown Band, without disappointing in the slightest. The band show off their ever impressive harmonies all over the shop – vocally and by way of guitars and violins. The song fits their ‘Welcome Home’ theme perfectly, and with the rest of the album which has a very nostalgic feel and reminds that truly, “no other place can ease your mind like the family table”.
Zac Brown Band’s fifth studio album Welcome Home is due to be released 12th May.
