It's now been over two years since Luke Bryan released the deluxe edition of his acclaimed project, Born Here Live Here Die Here, with fans having to make do with a smattering of singles, repackaged EPs and a compilation album since then.
This year, however, Bryan seems to be accelerating his rollout of new music, having released the high-octane single, ‘But I Got A Beer In My Hand’, in May 2023.
Following this, the ‘One Margarita’ hitmaker announced he'd be dropping another single, ‘Southern and Slow’, on August 11. Although the details for Luke Bryan's upcoming album have not yet been confirmed, he recently revealed to ABC Audio he has “10 to 12 things recorded”.
He then shared that he was “just trying to put the album [together and] get it to where we want to have it”. With Luke Bryan opening up about his desire to take his foot off the gas in the next year or so, we imagine he won't be in any hurry to drop the new project.
Nonetheless, with ‘But I Got A Beer In My Hand’ rapidly approaching the peak of the Country Radio charts and Luke Bryan continuing to release new singles, it seems the hotly anticipated record might well be unveiled towards the end of 2023.
Luke Bryan's latest No. 1, ‘Country On’, was included on his 2022 Prayin’ In A Deer Stand compilation project, alongside the title-track, both of which remain untethered to any full-length studio album.
As a result, both ‘Country On’ and ‘Prayin’ In A Deer Stand’ could feature on Luke Bryan's next album. Either way, we're holding out hope that we'll get an official announcement regarding the eagerly awaited new record in the coming months.
