Modern-day country giant Luke Bryan has revealed the tracklisting and artwork for his new album, to be titled Born Here Live Here Die Here and released by Capitol Nashville on 24 April. He’s also shared the title track from the new record, which you can listen to here:
The album, Bryan’s seventh studio release, was produced by Jeff Stevens and Jody Stevens, and the star says of the title song: “The second I heard the song ‘Born Here, Live Here, Die Here’ [written by Jameson Rodgers, Josh Thompson and Jake Mitchell] it related to me, how I grew up, how I have so many roots and so many ties to my hometown.
“Being tied to your hometown is very important in country music,” Bryan continues. “I fell in love with the song right away and now we have an album and a tour derived from this song. It’s pretty amazing. I’m proud of this new music and I’m really excited to get it out!”
Born Here Live Here Die Here will also include Bryan’s 23rd No. 1 single ‘Knockin’ Boots’ and his current hit ‘What She Wants Tonight.’ The album is the follow-up to Bryan’s gold-certified 2017 album What Makes You Country, which became his third in a row to top both the country and all-genre Billboard 200 charts. It included the No. 1 singles ‘Light It Up,’ ‘Most People Are Good’ and ‘Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset.’
On Sunday (16), Bryan resumed his duties alongside Katy Perry and Lionel Richie as a judge on ABC’s American Idol, for the new season premiere.
