In a new interview with Holler, Chase Rice has shed some light on what fans can expect from his I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell follow-up, in addition to when they can expect it.

As well as delving into the creative process behind the eagerly anticipated record, the ‘Bench Seat’ singer-songwriter explained how his next project will find him diving further into the alt-country, outlaw ambience of his widely acclaimed previous album.

I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell arrived out of left-field for many fans, who had grown accustomed to the chart-topping Floridian artist's comparatively mainstream hits such as ‘Eyes On You’, ‘Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen‘ and ‘Lonely’.

However, as he explains to Holler, he's now found his true sound, and he's introducing new, folkier elements that will take his next album beyond the sonic landscape of I Hate Cowboys.

As for a release date, Chase Rice warns that nothing is set in stone just yet, but that it's likely fans won't have to wait longer than a few months until they can hear the full body of work.

He shares, “We're leaning towards late summer. I'd like to put it out while we're still touring with Dierks Bentley, and we end with him in October. So hopefully [it'll be out] by July, August”.

Elsewhere in the conversation, Chase Rice touches on how an unreleased track, ‘Go Down Singin’, will serve as the centrepiece of the record. The introspective, autobiographical track finds Chase openly and evocatively laying out the reasons behind his departure from commercial country and his foray into the genre's eclectic outer edges. He's even earmarked ‘Go Down Singin’ as a potential title-track.

Listeners are able to get the first taste of this album with the viral, simmering ‘Fireside’, which drops on streaming platforms on Friday, May 10th, and marks Chase Rice's first independent release since making the decision to leave Broken Bow Records.

Chase Rice goes on to emphasise how this means there are extra factors and moving parts to take into consideration with the release schedule, “We're the only ones promoting this album now...So we want to give ‘Fireside’ time to catch, we want to give ‘Go Down Singin’ time if that's the next song that we put out, and I think it should be because I want people to hear the heart of the album before it's fully out”.

Chase Rice officially steps into his exciting new era as an independent, alt-country artist with ‘Fireside’ - and there's plenty more where that came from, with a wealth of stellar music on the near horizon, including an intricate, moving Lori McKenna duet.
