Dave Matthews Band’s 10th studio album, Walk Around the Moon, comes out May 19. Lead single “Madman’s Eyes” is now available on all major streaming platforms.
The announcement of the new Dave Matthews Band album came today, along with the release of 2023 tour dates. The tour begins May 9 with a three-show run in Mexico before the U.S. leg kicks off May 19 with a concert at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas.
The new DMB album contains 12 songs, including seven the band has previously played in concert. Most of the songs were produced by Rob Evans, who has worked as a mixer and engineer for DMB since 2003. John Alagia, a longtime collaborator with the band, serves as executive producer.

“Break Free” is the oldest known song on the new DMB album, having made its live debut in 2006. The band previously worked on the song in the studio with producer Mark Baston during the abandoned sessions for the follow-up to 2005’s Stand Up.
When asked on Twitter about his involvement in producing “Break Free,” Batson replied: “I prefer to wait for the band to make their presentations!!! They work so hard and deserve to control all aspects of their rollout. I’m just another excited fan!!!”
“Singing from the Windows” and “The Ocean and the Butterfly” were first performed in 2020. DMB debuted “Walk Around the Moon,” “Madman’s Eyes” and “The Only Thing” during its 2021 tour, followed by “Something to Tell My Baby” in 2022.
The other songs are all new to fans.
