Chris Young has a new album on the way!
The country superstar revealed the news on Friday, June 11, and shared that the 14-track project, dubbed Famous Friends, will arrive on August 6.
The project includes several of Young’s famous friends, including Kane Brown on the Top 5 and climbing title track, Lauren Alaina on the previously released “Town Ain’t Big Enough,” and Mitchell Tenpenny on “At the End of a Bar.” Additionally, the project features background vocals from Sarah Buxton, Hillary Lindsey and Shay Mooney.
“I know I’ve said it before, but I honestly can’t say it enough – I am so excited to be releasing my new album,” Young shared in a statement. “There are so many incredibly talented artists, songwriters and producers – all friends of mine – who helped make this album possible. Having friends share their talents as collaborators, songwriters, producers and more, it’s only natural to call the album ‘Famous Friends.’”
Along with the album announcement, the country hitmaker also released a brand new track: “Rescue Me.”
“I think ‘Rescue Me’ is such a cool twist on the typical love song concept,” he shared of the song he co-wrote with Josh Hoge, Mark Holman, Matthew McGinn and Christian Davis Stalnecke. “People were already falling in love with it just based off short social teases. It’s something special and I’m proud to have helped write it and produce it alongside Mark Holman.”
This is Young’s eighth studio album and first new album since the release of his 2017 project, Losing Sleep.
“I want people to fall in love with it, blow their speakers listening to it, dance to it, party along with it, cry to it, just live it – and I can’t wait to start playing this new music on the road soon,” he said.
