As Morgan Wallen continues his reign at the top of the Billboard 200 Albums chart with his sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album, the superstar surprised fans with the release of three new tracks to streaming platforms.
“This Side Of A Dust Cloud” and “Bandaid On A Bullet Hole,” songs that were previously exclusive to Target, as well as “Sand In My Boots (The Dangerous Sessions),” are now available to stream.
“Ran outta patience,” Wallen shared on Instagram on Thursday evening. “2 more new ones at 11 CST.”
Wallen co-wrote “This Side Of A Dust Cloud” with Matt Dragstrem, Chase McGill, Josh Thompson.
“This Side Of A Dust Cloud”
“Bandaid On A Bullet Hole” is a clear favorite among Wallen’s fanbase. The piano-driven ballad finds the East Tennessee native looking back on a breakup. The song was penned by Wallen, Jacob Durrett and Ashley Gorley.

Additionally, an acoustic rendition of the Dangerous album opener, “Sand In My Boots,” was also released to streaming platforms. The YouTube video alone already has more than 3.5 million views, proving that the Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy and Josh Osborne-penned song is an absolute smash.
