As the October 18 release date for his third Warner Music Nashville album quickly approaches, Chris Janson is revealing more details about his much-anticipated new project.
Dubbed Real Friends, the album features 13 tracks, including a collaboration with Janson’s friend, labelmate and fellow Grand Ole Opry Member, Blake Shelton.
Janson co-produced and co-wrote every song on the project. A stacked lineup of A-list songwriters and a few newcomers contributed to the record, as well as Janson’s wife, Kelly Roland.
“Real Friends is my favorite album I’ve made yet, hands down,” Janson previously shared. “I made Real Friends with actual real friends. I produced the album with real friends, wrote all the songs with real friends, took all the photos for the project with my best friend and wife, Kelly…I’m more excited about music now than I have been in all of my career.”
Fans who pre-order Real Friends now will receive instant downloads of four tracks, including the lead single, “Good Vibes,” and the brand new track, “Done.” The just-released music video for “Done” features Janson’s wife, manager and collaborator, Kelly. Check out the clip below.
