With the release of Never Enough in May 2023, Parker McCollum established himself as one of the biggest names in modern country - and fans can't wait to see what he does next.

It seems we'll be getting the Texan's follow-up project later this year, with Parker underlining his plans to record the next album in March in a recent interview with Holler.

He also revealed he's “already written 20 songs that I want to cut for this new album”, with Parker delighting fans by emphasising his desire to return to the sparser, alt-country-leaning sound that pervaded his much-loved debut album, The Limestone Kid.

Parker McCollum has been teasing a few stellar unreleased tracks of late, sharing the stripped-back, heartbroken ballad, ‘Big Old Fancy House’, via Holler's socials.

He confirmed this beautifully intricate song will be appearing on the new album, as will the previously shared fan-favourite, ‘Hope That I'm Enough’. However, ‘Got Damn’, which Parker McCollum teased with a clip back in April 2023, has been remoulded into an introspective new song with a similar melody, entitled, ‘I Don't Want To Be A Cowboy Tonight’. During a 2024 live-stream, Parker performed another unreleased offering, ‘As Far As I Can Tell’, which fans are hoping will also make the cut for his hotly anticipated new album.

Towards the end of February, Parker McCollum took to X (formerly Twitter) to write, ‘Every move you make is killin’ me’, which fans speculated could be a lyric. Their suspicions were proven correct when, during a March 13 Instagram Live session, Parker performed an acoustic version of a sultry, rhythmic track that appears to be called, ’Every Move You Make’, which seems destined for the new album.

In addition, Parker McCollum spoke to Holler about how he intends to spend a few nights in the studio after the release of the next project, and record an acoustic version of each song.

Fans have been clamouring for an acoustic album from Parker for a number of months now, with listeners calling for the ‘Pretty Heart’ hitmaker to strip away his usual production and allow the spotlight fall on his captivating, sinuous vocals.

Although we're yet to hear of an official release date for Parker McCollum's upcoming album, we're keeping our fingers crossed the sessions go well in March, and that Parker's camp decide to drop a single or two in the months to come.

Having said this, in his Holler interview, Parker McCollum did admit that, while he would ideally release his new album soon after recording the tracks, his label might have other ideas. It seems the concrete release date will therefore depend on how the March recording goes, and whether Parker lands on a sound both he and his team are happy with, before they begin planning the rollout for the project.

Nonetheless, with Parker McCollum's current single, ‘Burn It Down’, blazing a trail as it surges up the Country Radio charts, he surely won't want to wait too long after this hits No. 1 before shipping another song to the airwaves. Parker confirmed to Holler that he won't be picking any more singles from Never Enough, and that - excitingly - the next track to hit Country Radio will be taken from his new album.
