Kane Brown’s new album will feature 15 or 16 tracks, including one that he teased 5-years-ago on Facebook that fans loved.
In a recent interview with iHeartRadio personality and American Idol mentor Bobby Bones on The Bobby Bones Show, Brown opened up about his upcoming new album and shared a few details on how many songs he has written for the project as well as how many songs have already been completed and that will appear on the album.
Bones asked the “One Mississippi” singer how many songs he has prepared for the upcoming album, which he told the iHeartRadio host that he has “9 [songs] that [are] cut.” The country hitmaker then added that he has around “45 or 50” songs written for the yet-to-be announced new project, but only “15 or 16” tracks will make the completed album.
Brown also shared that he has a song coming on the new project that he teased on Facebook about 5-years ago and fans adored. A song that he says will also act as the opening song for his set on his upcoming 35-date Blessed & Free headlining arena tour later this year.
“People will ask me, like when are you going to release this song [that I shared in a snippet on Instagram] and I feel bad sometimes because I’m like ‘that song’s never getting released.’ But I have one song that I released 5-years-ago, that I know I’m going to release. It’s going to be the opening of our new tour and like I said, I teased it 5-years-old and it’s about to come out.”
When Bones asked Brown why he held the aforementioned track for 5-years and why hasn’t cut the song yet, Brown explained, “we just didn’t think… I mean I just didn’t think that it was going to make it. It blew up on my Facebook whenever I was doing all the Facebook stuff. It was a huge song for my Facebook but I’ve just never released it.”
The country hitmaker also revealed that the reason the new album has been taking so long is because he’s got so many songs for the album and he keeps “second-guessing myself and keep trying to out-write what i’ve already had. It’s been brutal.”

The hitmaker also previously teased unreleased songs including “I Can’t Love You Anymore,” “Something I’d Love To See,” “Riot,” “Nothing ‘Bout Loving You I’d Change” and “Drunk or Dreaming” and more. Throughout the last few months, Brown has been teasing fans with small clips of unreleased songs on social media which we’ve recently compiled a list of songs he teased that we hope will appear on his forthcoming new album, which you can check out HERE.
The yet-to-be announced album will follow Brown’s ACM-nominated EP, Mixtape Vol. 1, which was released on August 14, 2021 via RCA Nashville/Zone 4. The EP has went on to earn several hit singles including “Cool Again,” “Worldwide Beautiful” “Worship You” and his Top 40 radio single, “Be Like That” featuring Khalid and Swae Lee.
Additionally, Brown will hit the road on his massive 35-date ‘Blessed & Free Tour’ this fall. The tour is set to kick off on October 1 in Sacramento and will visit all 29 NBA basketball arenas throughout 2021 and 2022, marking the first country artist in history to headline every NBA basketball arena on a single tour.
