Kenny Chesney is counting down the days for his upcoming album by releasing new tidbits about the project. Today (3/26), the iconic road warrior revealed the album art and tracklisting for Here and Now.
The album art features Chesney out on the beach, looking out into the ocean. The singer has a faint smile on his lips and head covered by his cowboy hat.
Like his past projects, Chesney sought out the best songs he could find. He hopes fans relate to these new tracks, like they have over his last two decades of music.
“I’d say it’s weird, the way people hear songs, and say, ‘That’s me!’,” he admits, “except I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, ‘That’s me.’ When it started happening, I was honored… and as it went on, I started to realize how important music is in all of our lives. It’s a life raft, a coach cheering for you, a shoulder to cry on, a reason to take stock.
“When I’m listening to songs in the studio, actually putting a record together, I’m thinking about that. I’m thinking about Vibe Room conversations, people I meet moving around, the stories I’m told… the reasons people connect with the songs. I don’t take it lightly, even when the song is supposed to be fun.”
Chesney’s album is set for release on May 1. Fans will have to wait a little longer to celebrate the new music with Chesney live as the first 11 dates on his Chillaxification Tour have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The rescheduled dates are expected to be announced soon.
