Jason Aldean Says Next Album Is Completed

Jason Aldean has completed his next album and expects to release it in the fall, he told reporters backstage at the ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 1). Aldean said the first single will be released this summer.

“We went in and cut this record like we have every other record,” he said. “It starts with finding great songs. That’s number one. We were able to do that. We found some songs that I think are not right-down-the-middle, mainstream things. They’re things that allowed us to branch out a little more, which we did on the My Kinda Party album.

“It’s just about pushing and trying new things but also not ever getting away completely from what got you to this point. I think there’s a very fine line right there,” he added.

Released in late 2010, My Kinda Party has sold more than 2 million copies. That project includes his duet with Kelly Clarkson, “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” which won ACM Awards in the single and vocal event categories.
