Cole Swindell Doesn’t Want to ‘Completely Abandon’ His Sound on New Album

With each new album comes a progression of an artist’s sound, but Cole Swindell is sticking to what he knows best for his third studio release.

Although he typically finishes up a project without any looking back, Swindell decided to give the album a second try when he added the title track onto the record. The song truly inspired Swindell to believe this third album would be his best work yet, while not letting go of the roots that led him to his success in the industry.

“That’s always a fun thing to try to pick the title of the album, but it’s also hard because you’ve got songs you love, and sometimes they work as titles, sometimes they don’t, but ‘All of It’ was actually a song,” Swindell revealed during a press conference at the 2018 CMA Music Festival. “I got to go back into the studio and record after we were done with the album. I’ve never had an opportunity to do that. When I was done, you know, we were done. This time, I just happened to hear this song and I didn’t even know if I can do that. I had asked my team. I was like, I have to have the song, what am I going to do? I went back and recorded it, and now here it is, the album title.”

Swindell really wants to showcase multiple sides of his personality, from the sad to the happy to the romantic and beyond. As long as fans get all of it’in one collection, the singer will be more than satisfied with his musical mission.

“I think there are more songs on this album, like ‘Break Up In The End,’ that are going to tug at people’s heartstrings because that’s where I’m at in my career, but I still have the fun stuff that got me here. You can’t ever completely abandon that because that’s what got me here,” he explained.

All of It will hit shelves later this year on August 17.
