Expected Release Date: Second Half of 2024

Expected Title: TBC

Expected Tracklist:

  • ‘Holy Smokes’

Bailey Zimmerman consolidated his status as country music's next-big-thing with the release of his 2023 debut album, Religiously, which so far boasts three No. 1 singles.

As a result, expectations are sky-high for the Illinois prodigy's follow-up project, with fans hoping Bailey Zimmerman has another full-length album lined up for the latter half of 2024.

Although there's no official release or tracklist just yet, Bailey has released the lead single from the record, ‘Holy Smokes’, which tells a story of young love through an array of cleverly interwoven spiritual imagery (“Her hangin' onto me like a cross on a rearview does / Her eyes were blue, the words were red / On that half pack of cigarettes”).

Sonically, ‘Holy Smokes’ carries a similar atmospheric ambience to Religiously stand-outs such as the title-track, ‘Rock and A Hard Place’ and ‘Get to Gettin’ Gone’.

Lyrically, the religious vein that runs through ‘Holy Smokes’ aligns with the core theme of the album, so perhaps this is set to be tagged onto a deluxe version of his 2023 project.

Having said that, with the one year anniversary of Religiously approaching on May 12, Bailey has had plenty of time to hit the studio and record a plethora of originaly material.

As a result, fans will be hoping that, rather than just two or three songs dropping as part of a deluxe project, the bearded crooner is instead readying a brand new album. If this is the case, we imagine he'll opt for the same rollout plan that served him so well with Religiously, with a shorter EP arriving ahead of the full album, so that Bailey and his team can test out which tracks should make the cut for the record.
