Jake Owen‘s highly-anticipated seventh studio album, Loose Cannon, is ready to fire off VERY soon!
As a part of this week’s New Music Friday, the country superstar dropped four brand new singles, “On The Boat Again,” “Solo, Solo,” “Nothing” and “Hot Truck Beer,” ultimately giving fans a glimpse into what Loose Cannon will have in store when it hits all music streaming platforms on June 23rd.
“The upcoming 16-track album will give fans a collection of summertime staples, with sunshine-soaked lyrics that tip their hat to classic country rhythms audiences of all generations can crack a cold one too. With 10 number one singles and over 2.5 billion streams across his decorated career, Owen continues to share his unique blend of laid back, feel-good country,” and we seriously can’t wait to hear it for ourselves.
Given that his last full-length project, Greetings From…Jake, was released in 2019, Loose Cannon is sure to showcase Owen’s growth as an artist over the past four years. The album is said to “showcase his maturity as an artist in evolution, allowing fans of ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night‘ and ‘Beachin’‘ a chance to grow alongside Owen as he taps into his neo-traditional next wave,” ultimately teasing a new era of Jake Owen that is sure to be nothing short of incredible.
Until we can hear Loose Cannon from start to finish, it is clear that we will have “On The Boat Again,” “Solo, Solo,” “Nothing” and “Hot Truck Beer” on repeat until further notice.
