It seems Chris Stapleton's fifth studio album, Higher, will be released on November 10 2023.

There has now been an official announcement from Stapleton and his team, but prior to this, the project was made available to pre-order on Apple Music in a number of countries, such as New Zealand.

It's now up on Apple Music as a pre-release across all territories, with the lead single from Higher, ‘White Horse’, having been released immediately on all platforms.

The album is set to feature a variety of previously unheard tracks from the Kentucky crooner, including ‘South Dakota’, ‘Trust’, ‘Mountains Of My Mind’ and ‘Weight Of Your World’.

It'll also include unreleased fan-favourites such as ‘It Takes A Woman’ and ’Crosswind’, both of which Chris Stapleton has snuck into his live setlist a time or two in recent years.

Higher will be the ’Tennessee Whiskey’ hitmaker's first studio record in almost three years, with Stapleton's previous album, Starting Over, arriving in 2020 to widespread acclaim. More recently, the bearded songsmith released his now-iconic rendition of the US national anthem, which he performed during the 2023 Super Bowl in February.

As we suspected, in tandem with the official album announcement, Chris Stapleton dropped the project's lead single on Friday, July 20. It appears the country megastar could possibly be planning to give the brand new track a live debut during his hotly anticipated performance in Nashville alongside George Strait and Little Big Town on July 28.
