Kenny Chesney has a new album in the works, and it'll be out SOON!
Kenny's new album, Songs for the Saints, has 12 new songs and--according to a press release-- is "all about the places that save you."
“So much has happened since I went off the road in 2016. And all of it, in one way or another, has ended up on this record," Chesney says in a press release. "It’s special to me because of what it says – to me, and for me – about life, the world around us, how fragile it all can be and about somehow still finding the best parts of you, and moving towards them.”
Kenny has spent the last few months recording Songs for the Saints; he wrote or co-wrote five of its tracks. Fans can expect to hear some songs inspired by the destruction in the Virgin Islands during Hurricane Irma in the fall of 2017; He owned a house in St. John that was leveled by the storm.
“This is not a literal record, but it is an album about the refuges we all have, how temporary life is and the way we navigate to better places, dig in and face the destruction. And sometimes, we learn to own our wild hearts in the process," the country star says. "I feel like I know what this album’s supposed to be, and I know how much it means to me. I wanted to get it just right, before we set a release date… and I think we’ve got it."
The new album will feature Kenny's current single, "Get Along," the music video for which was shot right here in Tampa on April 21st, when Kenny kicked off his Trip Around The Sun Tour. We're expecting the video to be released within the next few weeks.
Songs for the Saints will be released on July 27th.
