Capitol Records Nashville’s Jon Pardi has revealed the track list for his upcoming fourth studio album, Mr. Saturday Night, as well as released the record’s title track. The full project is set for release on Sept. 2.
Written by Benjy Davis, Reid Isbell and Joe Ragosta, “Mr. Saturday Night” is a neon-tinged play on words. The track juxtaposes the life of the party with the desolate guy who goes home to face what he’s lost.
“I feel like everybody wants to be Mr. Saturday Night at one point on the weekend and have a good time,” the multi-Platinum singer-songwriter shares. “But then you hear the song and—the way it’s so well written—it’s a sad song, but you don’t go there right away, because it’s also a fun song. That’s the thing about ‘Mr. Saturday Night,’ it’s more than meets the eye. It’s all fun until you get to the chorus.”
Tapping some of Nashville’s most in-demand songwriters, Pardi has teamed up again with Bart Butler and Ryan Gore to produce Mr. Saturday Night. Including the top 10-and-climbing single “Last Night Lonely,” the album boasts 14 songs and follows Pardi’s ACM and CMA Album of The Year-nominated Heartache Medication.
