When Brothers Osborne decided to work on their third studio album, the two knew they wanted to keep their live shows in mind. While the music was made with those intentions, 2020 had other plans and essentially stopped all live music. Though plans may have changed, TJ and John Osborne pressed on, creating their best album yet with Skeletons.
“Skeletons is a record that was essentially brought on because we wanted to play more new songs live,” John explained in a conversation with his record label. “So going into this record T.J. and I decided let’s make a record that no matter what song we just cherry pick out of the record we can do it during our show. And that is how we decided the songs that we ended up on the record. And we started with just like every other artist, 30, 40 plus songs. We started whittling them down, ‘well we might be able to play that. I don’t know if we would be able to play that.’ And that’s how we ended up with Skeletons. And it was really birthed from just playing live shows.”
The project features 12 new tracks, including their high-octane single “All Night.”
