Kane Brown will continue his streak of new music with an upcoming EP, setting August 14 for the release of Mixtape Vol. 1.

Announcing the project today (August 10), Brown’s team says the seven-track collection will feature all four of his 2020 releases to date — plus three never-before-heard additions. His current singles include the Top 10 and climbing hit, “Cool Again,” and the Top 40 crossover “Be Like That” featuring Khalid and Swae Lee, and this year’s other releases include a duet with John Legend on “Last Time I Say Sorry” and “Worldwide Beautiful,” the diversity-and-acceptance ballad released after the death of George Floyd.

New tracks include “Worship You,” “BFE” and “Didn’t Know What Love Was,” and Brown co-wrote each of the seven alongside songsmiths like Shy Carter and Ryan Hurd. The rising star also recently unveiled a remix of “Cool Again” featuring hip-hop favorite, Nelly, along with a tropical-themed video.
