Drew & Ellie Holcomb are releasing their brand new record Coming Home: A Collection of Songs this Friday (Jan 14). Coming Home is a nine-track assorted set list of new songs, re-released tracks, and cover tunes. Alongside a batch of familiar songs from their catalog that reflect their life as a couple, the Holcombs also put their own spin on Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again."
One of the highlights of the new record is the way the Holcombs have re-imagined some of their best loved songs. This includes a lovely version of "Hung the Moon" (from 2009's A Million Miles) to 2019's moving single "Electricity" to the unhurried beauty of "You and Me."
Drew writes, "I'm thrilled to announce that @ellieholcomb and I will be releasing an album of our singles called "Coming Home: A Collection of Songs" on January 14th! And the first song, a recently re-recorded version of "Hung the Moon", is out now!"
Upon releasing the new version of that crowd favorite, Ellie explains, "I wrote 'Hung the Moon' after a long season of listening to a lot of Lucinda Williams. It's always been a song that's felt like home to me. Drew was playing these chords around the kitchen one day, and I promptly stole them and wrote a love song about him. It's been an honor to see 'Hung the Moon' be included in so many people's weddings over the years and I LOVE this new take on an older song of ours. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed re-recording it!"

Drew and Ellie met as students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and they married in 2006, a year after Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors began carving out a spot among the independent music landscape. Ellie ventured into solo territory in 2012, making significant inroads in Christian music. Meanwhile, Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors have forged on, with Drew tacking a couple of side projects like a vinyl subscription service, a top-draw music festival, and premium Tennessee whiskey. Next month, Drew & Ellie Holcomb will launch the You & Me Tour in Florida, with dates running coast to coast through March.
