Collective Soul announces new album, "Blood"; listen to single "Right as Rain" now

Fuzze-Flex Records/ADACollective Soul has announced a new album titled Blood. The 10th studio effort from the "Shine" rockers will arrive on June 21.

You can download the first single from Blood, titled "Right as Rain," now via digital download.

"'Right as Rain' is a phrase I had for a while," says lead vocalist Ed Roland, who's now going by the name E Roland. "It was one my grandmother used to tell me about -- one of those old Southern things, you know? 'C'mon, I'm gonna spank you right as rain!' I never really knew what it meant."

Blood follows Collective Soul's last album, 2015's See What You Started by Continuing.

Ahead of the new album's arrival, Collective Soul will launch a 25th anniversary tour alongside Gin Blossoms, starting May 25 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

"Now’s the Time"
"Over Me"

"Good Place to Start"
"Observation of Thoughts"
"Big Sky"
"Porch Swing"
