Hunter Hayes To Release Album ‘Wild Blue (Part 1)’ On Friday


Hunter Hayes had a surprise for his fans Wednesday morning, as he announced he will release Wild Blue (Part 1), his first album in four years, on Friday, Aug. 16. The album will be the first in a trilogy of albums.

During his visit to NBC’s Today, Hayes thanked his fans for sticking with him through the past few years.

“You’ve been patient and you’ve also given me the strength to be here.” he said. “I was originally going to put out the album on the anniversary of my debut album, because I felt like I was picking up where I left off there, but I decided I couldn’t wait any longer.

Over the past several months, Hayes has introduced fans to selections from the project, including “Dear God,” “One Shot,” and “One Good Reason.” Last night, he released the title track from the album, “Wild Blue.”
