Away from the World, Dave Matthews Band’s eighth studio effort and follow-up to 2009′s Big Whiskey & the GrooGrux King, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release last month. It marked the band’s sixth consecutive album to debut at the top of the charts. The band reunited with acclaimed producer Steve Lillywhite, who produced their first three studio albums: Under The Table And Dreaming, Crash and Before These Crowded Streets. The new album features single “Mercy” (video is streaming below) and “If Only”.
Along with the standard release, Away from the World is available in deluxe and super deluxe formats. The deluxe version features three exclusive new live tracks, including a rendition of “Gaucho” recorded earlier this year in Hartford, Connecticut. The super-deluxe edition includes the deluxe CD, a DVD, a 2012 tour photo book and more. The DVD is comprised of ten tracks filmed during the band’s summer tour, including “Pig” from the band’s stop at Mansfield’s Comcast Center in June.
