Jason Aldean Sets November Date For ‘Highway Desperado’
Jason Aldean today (8/25) announced details on his 11th studio album, dubbed Highway Desperado. The album will be out on November 3.
Jason said about the new album, “I think when I look back on it, I built my career early on my live show and have been on the road touring since I was 18 years old. For us, touring is our favorite part. Getting on the bus and going town to town and playing our shows and doing our thing and seeing the fans … the title for the tour and album was really inspired from that.”
Aldean had a hand in writing three of the new album’s 14 songs and reunited with his longtime producer, Michael Knox, on the project. Jason is a co-writer on “Hungover in a Hotel,” “Breakup Breakdown,” and the album’s title track.
The project marks his first since his double album, Macon, Georgia, which was released in 2021 and 2022. The new album already has three songs that fans have heard, including “Try That In a Small Town,” “Tough Crowd,” and a newly released track, “Let Your Boys Be Country.”
Aldean posted to his 4 million Instagram followers about the new project. He captioned the album’s new cover artwork, “New album’ Highway Desperado’ coming at y’all on November 3. Preorder and listen to my newest song, “Let Your Boys Be Country,” now at the link in my bio.”
Many of his die-hard fans responded to the post, including one who said, “I think this might just be your best album yet! The 3 songs released so far speak volumes.” Another fan commented, “I cannot wait .” One more fan wrote, “Awesome show in Estero last night!”
