GRAMMY-nominated group Eli Young Band officially announced that their new full-length album, Love Talking, will be released on Friday, June 3rd and is available for pre-order now. Named after the album’s debut single, “Love Talking” has gotten fans talking and eager to get their ears on the full album.

“We really wanted to find the positivity in what we got out of the last two years, so that was one of the main goals for this album… There was a lot of unknown that was written into some of the music we created during that time, but we all lived it so deeply; we wanted to offer something uplifting with our music,” lead singer Mike Eli states.

The band’s newest release, “Break Up In A Bar,” is the only outside track on the project and was written by Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson and Hunter Phelps.

Apart from 7 of the 9 songs on the project, Eli shares, “Right away, you could just hear the melody in the song from the top and know, ‘okay, this is a special one.’ And the spin – it’s one of those songs lyrically you just wish you would have thought of… We know that that’s always the first rule – if you hear something that you wish you would have thought of it’s worth that second listen. We just started playing it in our live show, and it’s funny to see the audience because they want to know it so bad… That’s a good sign.”

Eli has written over 150 songs since the release of the This Is Eli Young Band: Greatest Hits in 2019. On Love Talks, he will be joined by Nashville songwriters Jimmy Robbins, Laura Veltz, Josh Osborne, Jon Nite and more.

Fans can catch the band on their Love Talking Tour now. For the complete track list and a list of tour dates, see below.
