After dropping a slew of song teasers and snippets over the past few months, Luke Combs has confirmed fans’ suspicions by announced a new 18-track album. The project will be released on March 24.
The new record will be Luke's first since 2022's Growin’ Up, which has spawned hits such as ‘Doin’ This’, ‘The Kind Of Love We Make’ and, more recently, ‘Going, Going, Gone’, which received an acoustic version and music video in December.
As we highlighted back in November, a growing list of evidence seems to point to Luke releasing a double-album, entitled Growin’ Up And Gettin’ Old. The fact that his new announcement uses a virtually identical branding style, logo and colour scheme to his original Growin’ Up post only serves to heighten this inkling.
In the lead-up to Christmas, Luke uploaded a clip of a new track, ‘Tattoo On A Sunburn’, which could well be the first single from the March project. With an impressive 18 tracks, many will be hoping that a number of Luke's unreleased fan-favourites make the cut, such as ‘Five Leaf Clover’, ‘Joe’ and ‘Sleepless In A Hotel Room’.
After ‘Tattoo On A Sunburn’, Luke then posted a snippet of ‘Growin’ Up And Gettin’ Old’, which remains pinned to the top of his Instagram page. It seems this may end up being the double-album's title track.
Luke Combs is preparing to embark on a blockbuster world tour, which kicks off in Arlington, Texas, on March 25 - the day after this mysterious new album is released.
Luke has a total of eleven unreleased tracks that he's teased in the past, so even if he includes all of these on the project, we're still going to be treated to at least seven brand new unheard songs.
As one of the most prominent artists in the genre and the 2022 CMA Entertainer of the Year, any new music from Luke Combs is sure to cause a stir across the country music world. And with a whopping 18 new tracks on the way, it's clear that Luke isn't doing things by halves - could he even be doing things by doubles...?
