Jason Aldean will release his new studio album 9 on 22nd November 2019 via Broken Bow Records/BMG.
To mark the announcement, Aldean has released four songs off the album; Blame It On You sways with a half-drunk realisation that we make our own problems, I Don’t Drink Anymore serves a 100-proof hook, Keep It Small Town reminds that well-lived lives don’t have to be complicated, and the album’s fiery lead radio single We Back rounds out the first-released songs. All of the tracks are out now to stream/download worldwide.
“Early on I always thought if we ever got to make nine albums, I’m going to call it 9. It was my baseball number growing up, and it’s just kind of always been my lucky number,” explains Aldean. “I remember cutting the first album and thinking ‘that’s forever away,’ and now here we are. I don’t know, it’s really special we made it this far – so, it’s more for me than anybody else – but, it means a lot.”
The album’s first single is We Back, one of the songs available to download and stream now.
“When I came into country music and made my mark, it was with a banger,” Aldean adds. “But we haven’t put out a lot of that stuff over the last couple years. So we got this song and to me it just says what it says: ‘Thought we were gone, but you’re wrong – now it’s on.’”
Aldean is a three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year with 23 number ones under his belt. He’s sold more than 18 million albums and amassed more than 14.4 billion streams.
His 2019 Right All Night Tour will wrap at the Texas’ Rangers Globe Life Park stadium on 11th October before returning to Las Vegas, 6th to 8th December for Jason Aldean: Ride All Night Vegas at Park MGM.
