Luke Combs has stoked the sense of excitement ahead of his upcoming album by sharing a series of photos of him recording new music, with the North Carolina songsmith teasing in the caption, “Good to be back in the studio today…”
The revelation that the ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ hitmaker is cutting some new songs has sent his fans into a frenzy of speculation, with listeners throwing out various theories regarding a potential release date for his Gettin’ Old follow-up.
Although there's currently no mention from Luke's camp as to when we can expect the record to drop, he's uploaded a trio of stellar unreleased tracks to his socials in recent weeks.
All three - ‘Noah's Arkansas’, ‘Plant A Seed’ and ‘The Man He Sees in Me’ - explore the drawn-in sound that pervaded his 2023 offering, Gettin’ Old. They find Luke Combs doubling-down on themes surrounding maturity, fatherhood and slowing down his pace of life.
We're hoping he found time to record all of these tracks during his recent studio session, and although Luke sometimes likes to wait longer than a year in-between albums, we have a strong feeling he's gearing up to release a new body of work in 2024.
Gettin’ Old arrived in March 2023, so it's coming up on a year since we last got a full-length record from the country megastar. With 2021 being the only year since his 2017 debut that Luke didn't release an album or a deluxe project, we could be due a new collection of tracks from the ‘Love You Anyway’ songsmith in the next few months.
In addition, there's been considerable talk of late about the prospect of a Luke Combs Greatest Hits album. Given the fact that Luke has a staggering 17 No. 1 singles to his name - and will soon have 18, with ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ hurtling towards the top spot at Country Radio - he has plenty of material for a compilation project. However, it seems it'd make more sense to wait until he reaches 20 No. 1s - which he could well do before the year is out - before releasing this kind of record.
Either way, we're excited to hear what Luke Combs has been cooking up in the studio. With the bearded crooner continuing to test out demos and unreleased tracks via his socials, it probably won't be too long before we get to hear one of the session's end-products.
