Dave Matthews Band previews 'Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King'

The Dave Matthews Band sat down with Billboard to discuss their upcoming album Big Whiskey and the Groogrux King, their first new studio recording since 2005's Stand Up. Big Whiskey was produced by Rob Cavallo, and based on some early previews of the new material, expectations are that it could be the band's best work since the '90s.

During the recording process last fall, saxophonist Leroi Moore died tragically due to complications suffered in an ATV accident. The band carried on and dedicated the album to him. The album opens with a solo Moore recorded before his death.

Below is the video clip from Billboard, which contains a portion of the album's first single, "Funny The Way It Is," which hits radio on April 14. Go here to read a lengthy Q&A with Dave.

Here's a short clip highlighting the Leroi Moore solo that opens the new record.
