Brad Paisley is working on a new album with a more organic sound. The singer recently revealed that the follow up to 2011’s This Is Country Music will be unedited.
“A lot of what you hear on the radio and a lot of what you hear in any form of music right now has both the aid and also the negative part of a computer being involved in a big way,” Paisley told CMT. “They’ll have a great drum track, and then they’ll make sure the bass hits right now, then the kick drum, and then they’ll make sure that the vocals are tuned. They’ll make sure that everything’s perfect before it hits your radio station. I like that sound. We’ve had a lot of that on records just like everybody else, where you make sure everything is right before it gets out. This time the mode has been: ‘We’re not editing.’ If you hear something on a record, we played it.”
Even though recording an unedited album is new for Brad, he says he’s pleased with the way the album is turning out.
“You have this picture of what that might sound like, and it’s different than you think. That’s what’s interesting. It’s hard to describe it, but I think it’s going to be really cool. I’m at least happy with it.”
The “Camouflage” singer has kept his new music under wraps until now. “[I’m] at the scary point of starting to play it for some people. I’ve been really private about it until now. I didn’t really let anybody hear stuff, and I’m just now starting to play things for some people at my label. I’ve had the most fun making this record I’ve ever had.”
As of now, there’s no word as to when the album will be released. In the meantime, fans can catch Brad on the road through mid-October. Click HERE to find out if his ‘Virtual Reality World Tour’ will be making a stop near you.
