Broken Bow Records star Dustin Lynch revealed the details of his hotly-anticipated third album, announcing the project’s title and release date via livestream during a homecoming party at the historic George Dickel Distillery in Tullahoma, TN today (8/9).
Titled CURRENT MOOD, the album will hit store shelves and digital outlets on SEPTEMBER 8 and features 13 bold new tracks. Along with confirmed GOLD-certified hits “Seein’ Red” and “Small Town Boy,” the project stands proudly at Country music’s cutting edge, giving fans a look inside Lynch’s relentlessly creative mind.
“This album is a glimpse into the last three years of my life…the travel, the adventures, the relationships and the personal growth,” says Lynch. “I think this is the most personal release I have done and I’m really excited to share with everyone my CURRENT MOOD.”
Produced by Brent Anderson, Mickey Jack Cones, Ross Copperman, Zach Crowell, and Will Weatherly, CURRENT MOOD stretches all the way from timeless roots Country and grooving Top 40 R&B, to lush millennial Pop and sunny SoCal power Punk. Preorders for the album begin this Thursday (8/10) on all digital retailers.
CURRENT MOOD is the long-awaited third chapter in Lynch’s rise to Country stardom. His self-titled debut and WHERE IT’S AT follow-up landed at #1 and #2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, respectively, and his first single, “Cowboys and Angels,” achieved PLATINUM status.
The Tennessee native has since racked up four consecutive GOLD or PLATINUM-certified #1 singles (“Where It’s At,” “Hell of a Night,” “Mind Reader,” and “Seein’ Red”), while his current release – the romantically-charged Top 5 radio hit “Small Town Boy” – has become the fastest-rising single of his career.
Adding to the excitement, Lynch has also announced a headlining tour in support of the new album. Kicking off November 3 in Fayetteville, NC, THE RIDE OR DIE TOUR will visit 15 cities from New York to Los Angeles and wrap on December 17 in Grand Rapids, MI.
Showing his progression into a top-flight entertainer, Lynch’s headlining run will highlight the onstage intensity he’s honed on the road with Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line, bringing openers Michael Ray, Ryan Hurd, and LANCO along for the ride on select dates. Pre-sales for THE RIDE OR DIE TOUR begin August 21. Die-hard fans can pre-order the album, as well as exclusive merchandise bundles, for first-chance access to tickets for THE RIDE OR DIE TOUR. Details and all special offers are available at DustinLynchMusic.com.
Until then, he’ll continue electrifying massive crowds through the summer, serving as the featured opener on Brad Paisley’s WEEKEND WARRIOR WORLD TOUR, which finishes up September 24 with a show at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in St. Louis, MO. Lynch will also keep the summertime mood going as he is next slated to appear on ABC’s CMA Fest: The Music Event of Summer, airing August 16 at 8 p.m. (ET).
