Brett Eldredge To Release New Album In August

Brett Eldredge is gearing up for the release of his sophomore, self-titled album this summer, which is set to hit outlets August 4. The project is the followup to his debut CD Illinois, which was released in 2015 and produced four chart-topping hits. He announced the album news during his appearance Tuesday morning (5/9) on “TODAYwhere he joined Kathie Lee and Hoda to broadcast the 2017 CMT Music Awards nominations.

The album will feature Eldredge’s new single “Somethin’ I’m Good At,” which he debuted on the 52nd ACM Awards and has already racked up over 10.2 million streams.

“It’s kind of crazy to see an album cover with just your name on it,” Eldredge said. “I think that shows what I want to say with this album. Maybe it takes a little bit of guts to put out a self-titled album – but if it’s 100% honestly you, then that should come across through the music. That’s my name and I hope my fans love me for me. Hopefully they feel the connection of these songs and they help them through their everyday lives. Because that’s why I make this music.”

The new album is his first studio album in two years, but Eldredge released a Christmas album Glow in October that contained a chart-topping duet with Meghan Trainor of the classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” He’ll no doubt preview many of the songs off the brand new album as part of Luke Bryan’s “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” tour this Summer.
