It’s been less than a year since Thomas Rhett released his latest project, Life Changes, and already, the singer has released four tracks from the record to country radio. With singles soaring up the charts in record time, it’s no surprise that the hitmaker is already working on what’s sure to be an incredible follow-up.

“We’re on our fourth single, which is crazy because the record came out last September. It’s not even a year old,” Rhett proclaimed. “I remember on my second record we didn’t make a new record for like two years or something like that. But I just think it’s the way that a lot of fans are consuming music today, you know? When my album came out, that was the first time we’d ever gone out on the road right after an album and gotten to play album cuts that people knew all the words to.”

Since the release, the Georgia native has been writing just about as quickly as fans have been consuming the music and hopes to come out with some fresh music soon.

“Right now we’re just trying to lock down a time to figure out what songs we’re gonna record and when we’re gonna record them. But it is my goal to just keep putting more music out there,” he shared.

Rhett hasn’t been writing alone, however, and has expanded his writing circle to some of music’s most current and popular songwriters.

“I got to do a full week out in LA writing and I got to write with Ryan Tedder from One Republic and Charlie Puth,” shared Rhett. “I just love getting to go out in that world and getting to experiment just a little bit. And me and Charlie wrote a couple cool songs together so hopefully on this next album, if we find something that we love jointly, then you might see his name on the album.”

No word yet on when Rhett may share his new tunes with fans, but they can still catch his latest current “Life Changes” at country radio. He’ll also take his tunes out on the road as he continues his Life Changes World Tour.
