May 12, 2016

New York, NY – (May 12, 2016) – In celebration of their 20th anniversary, O.A.R. has announced the upcoming release of their new album XX out on August 5th via Vanguard Records. The two CD set includes a career-spanning collection of O.A.R.’s biggest hits and incredible live shows plus new studio material. Disc one features fan favorites such as “Heaven”, “Peace”, Shattered, “Two Hands Up” and more. Disc two spotlights select performances from their extensive live catalog.

The creation of the new single on XX is being documented in the new Qello Concert Series Evolution of a Song (EOAS). Announced earlier this week, EOAS is a first-of-its-kind original programming weekly series centered on the mystifying process of songwriting. In its debut season, which premiered on May 9th, cameras will follow O.A.R. as they create their next single. From the idea to the finished track, music fans will get a behind the scenes look as the process unfolds. The first season will air exclusively on Qello Concerts throughout May and June with a new episode each week.
