As anticipation builds for his forthcoming sophomore album, Big Loud Records star CHRIS LANE is giving fans a glimpse of what’s to come with a brand new song, “Drunk People,” now released in Australia.
The release is available instantly with a pre-order of LAPS AROUND THE SUN, due out July 13.
The follow up to Lane’s 2016 debut GIRL PROBLEMS, LAPS AROUND THE SUN arrives after two jam-packed years filled with chart-topping songs (“Fix,” “For Her”) and prominent special guest slots on star-studded tours with Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw + Faith Hill, and Rascal Flatts.
Keeping it real and raw, Lane drops truth-bomb lyrics with his signature Carolina twang on the honest, soothing track. Penned by Zach Abend, Michael Hardy and James McNair, “Drunk People” has the crooner’s easy-going vibe front and centre as he reminds the listener to shake off life’s mindless mistakes.
Following three consecutive GOLD-certified singles, CHRIS LANE has also announced his sophomore album, LAPS AROUND THE SUN. Revealing the news exclusively to Billboard, the breakout talent’s forthcoming release with Big Loud Records is set for July 13. The announcement comes as his smash hit “Take Back Home Girl” (featuring GRAMMY-nominated artist Tori Kelly) is on the verge of Country radio’s Top 10 and closes in on 200 million combined streams.
With tracks chosen based on meaning and personal connection, Lane’s serene confidence and good-natured humor shine bright on LAPS AROUND THE SUN. Produced by studio ace Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line), the organic collection of soulful arrangements was recorded with a live band accompanied by Lane’s timeless voice in its natural register.
“I’ve learned a lot. With my first record, I was trying to figure out exactly what kind of sound I wanted to have, and now I know. I know what I truly love and what kind of artist I want to be,” says Lane to Billboard. “My goal was to make sure anyone who hears this album finds a song they can relate to. I hope I accomplished that.”
LAPS AROUND THE SUN is available for pre-order with fans immediately receiving Country-to-the-core track “Fishin’” in addition to the album’s “All The Right Problems” and “Old Flame” upon purchase. Click here to pre-order LAPS AROUND THE SUN.
