Jillian Jacqueline is releasing her debut album.

Jacqueline announced Friday (Apr. 8) that her long-awaited debut album, Honestly would be available to fans on June 10. Jacqueline will release Honestly through Virgin Music, according to a press release.

The album will include 11 tracks and was co-produced by Tofer Brown and Bryan Brown. In addition, Jacqueline teamed up with songwriters, Lori McKenna, Madi Diaz, and Trevor Rosen (of country band Old Dominion) to bring Honestly to life.

Among the 11 tracks included on the album are two duets, album opener, “The Ocean” with Charlie Worsham and “Better With A Broken Heart” featuring TJ Osborne of Brothers Osborne.

Jacqueline said she was “thrilled” to have Osborne lend his voice to the track.

“I’ve always loved that resonant voice of his, with this emotional tremor to it,” Jacqueline said. “He really nailed it in the studio, and hearing us together on the chorus just gives me chills,” she added.

Jacqueline released the video, which stars her and Osborne on the same day that she announced her debut album was coming.

Jacqueline previously shared another track from her album called, “Magic.”

“The start of something new. A long awaited beginning. “Magic” is a song I wrote in 2016 with @toferbrown and @shanemcanally and I finally get to share it with you,” Jacqueline shared in an Instagram post. “This ode to feeling disillusioned by love is just the beginning of what’s to come…xo.”

Jacqueline previously released two EPs, Side A in 2017 and Side B in 2018. Jacqueline also collaborated with fellow country singer, Keith Urban on duet, “If I Were You” back in 2018.

Despite putting out music before, Jillian Jacqueline said working on her first full-length album was a “creative rebirth.”

“After 14 years in Nashville, this is my first fully realized album, one that runs the gamut of me as a person and an artist,” she said. “The passion of making this record was really a creative rebirth, putting me back in touch with what I’ve always loved about music.”

Honestly is currently available for fans to pre-save or pre-order.
