Although we're still awaiting a title and release date, Morgan has already been teasing and hinting at new music via his socials. Shortly before Christmas, for instance, the ‘Last Night’ hitmaker shared a snippet of what appears to be an unreleased collaboration with Post Malone, entitled ‘I Had Some Help‘. The pop-infused, beat-driven track follows in the genre-blending sonic footsteps of the previous album's title-track and ‘You Proof’, and has seemingly been co-written alongside Ernest and Charlie Handsome, both of whom played a key role throughout One Thing At A Time.
In January 2024, Morgan Wallen returned to his socials to tease another unreleased track, ‘I Guess’, which explores a comparatively stripped-back, traditional feel.
On the ballad, Morgan steps back into the shoes of the heartbroken protagonist of ‘Me + All Your Reasons’, ‘Days That End in Why’ and ‘Your Bartender’, as he laments his mistakes and flaws that led to the demise of the relationship.
Then, during an intimate Nashville writers’ round with ERNEST and HARDY in February 2024, Morgan Wallen treated fans to the first ever performance of ‘Lies, Lies Lies’.
It draws from the same intricate, sparse palette as ‘I Guess’. We - and fellow fans - are undoubtedly hoping ‘Lies, Lies, Lies’ makes the cut for the upcoming album, which Morgan has confirmed he'll start recording at the end of February.
In early 2023, fans began speculating that Morgan Wallen has a duet with Lainey Wilson up his sleeve, after Morgan wrote ‘I guess Country's Cool Now’ on his Instagram stories. Many eagle-eyed followers have taken to be a reference to Lainey's own song, ‘Country's Cool Again’, and her 2024 tour of the same name.
Similarly, in September, Morgan was stoking the flames of speculation regarding new music, when the ‘Everything I Love’ singer-songwriter captioned an Instagram post with what looks like a set of lyrics from an unreleased song, “You thought the grass was greener, now you’re in the weeds / You always were your own worst enemy”.
As we keenly look forward to the unveiling of Morgan Wallen's 2024 album, the buzz around the de-mulleted megastar continues to build, with Morgan having now consolidated his status as one of the biggest acts not only in country - but across all genres.
