Brett Eldredge is gearing up for a string of media appearances to celebrate the release of his upcoming self-titled album, which will be available on Friday (Aug. 4). He takes over Today on Aug. 7, followed by an appearance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Aug. 9, at 11:35 p.m. ET. The singer-songwriter will perform “The Long Way” from the upcoming album.
Leading up to the album release, Eldredge has offered fans early listens to tracks including “Castaway” and “No Stopping You,” in addition to his current single “Somethin’ I’m Good At.”
Eldredge says he pushed himself in the writing room, exploring new ways of relating universal experiences. On “Cycles,” penned with Matt Rogers, Eldredge looks at relationships realistically.
“Cycles was one of the hardest songs I’ve ever written,” Eldredge says. “It’s very continuous – I mean, literally, it’s in a cycle of how the lyric goes, but it’s all about a relationship where you’re falling in love and you’re falling out of love. [When] they come back and they show up at your door again, how do you say no to that person? You love them but you know it’s never going to work out. It’s a vicious cycle and you can’t stop it.”
On another track from the album, “Superhero,” penned with Ross Copperman and Heather Morgan, Eldredge demonstrates his aspiration to come through for the one he loves.
“I love the thought of being a superhero. I love the story of someone coming in and saving the day. I was always so envious of Superman, because I want to be that guy. I think that’s why Superman was so popular. We all picture ourselves as that nerdy guy who can go hop in a telephone booth and change into a superhero and save the day and win the girl over.”
Eldredge is currently on Luke Bryan’s Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour.
