The song is the latest stunning track to drop ahead of Kearney’s forthcoming new self-titled full-length studio album due out May 15th via Middle Kid Records. “Sumac” was written by Kearney and The Brook and the Bluff’s Joseph Settine, it was produced and engineered by Kearney and mixed by longtime collaborator and multi-platinum award winning mixer Robert Marvin (Kelly ClarksonJulia MichaelsBen Rector).
