Sam Hunt teased that he’s been working on new music, sharing that he’s got “a big chunk of it finished.”
Hunt recently spoke with Audacy’s Katie Neal at the Hard Rock Café in Nashville where he played a private show for one Audacy listener and nine of their friends. During the interview, Hunt not only shared that he’s been working on new music, but also that he’s got a new song “coming out in a few weeks.”
“I got a big chunk of [the new album] finished, with all the time off. And then, have slowly tried to piece it together,” Hunt said. “It gets harder as time has gone on…we had nothing else going on except for that project we worked on… I’ve got to get the band back together in terms of my production guys. It’s a little tricker now to track everybody down. I’ve got another song coming out in a few weeks. I’m going to try to trickle songs out after that over the summer,” he added.
In addition, when asked who he’d like to have play a private performance for him, Hunt was quick to name “Easy On Me” singer, Adele.
“The first name that came to mind is Adele,” Hunt shared. “They always talk about how sad her music is, but I love those piano ballad, heartbreak songs. Those are best in an intimate environment,” he explained.
Hunt previously teased new music back in March at the Florida Strawberry Festival 2022 where he played a song called, “Came The Closest.”
Hunt released his most recent album, Southside, in 2020. Hunt’s chart-topping hit, “23,” which appears on the album claimed the top spot at country radio in early April, marking his ninth career No. 1.
And while Hunt is still working on his new album, that’s not the only exciting thing he has coming up.
The “23” singer is set to headline the inaugural GoldenSky Country Music Festival in Sacramento, California on Oct. 15-16 alongside fellow singer, Tim McGraw.
Hunt is also preparing to take on the role of fatherhood as he and wife, Hannah Lee Fowler are expecting their first child together, a daughter, due later this month.
Amid all the exciting things Hunt has going on, he’ll hit the road from Jun. 24 to Nov. 19, with support from Ryan Hurd, Sean Stemaly, Travis Denning, and others.
