Florida Georgia Line have released their highly-anticipated 16-track studio album, Life Rolls On, on Friday (Feb. 12).
Tyler Hubbard said that he thinks that this new record is some of their best work to date.
“I feel like this is our strongest collection of work, our strongest project we’ve done,” Hubbard shared. “I feel like there’s a nostalgic feel to it that kind of takes us back to our first album in a way, but also elevated. And it kind of showcases how much we’ve grown.”
Most of their album was finished before the global health crisis struck, but to finish it, the superstar duo had to adjust the way that they would normally work on new music. “Music has been a huge outlet for us all throughout our lives, and probably more so than ever this year,” Brian Kelley said. “We’ve kind of all been creating a little different than usual, obviously over Zoom and sending out parts. It’s just been interesting but we’ve all pivoted and really enjoying where it’s at.”
The project brings a timely message but the duo never imagined that the world would be going through all that we are and all that we have throughout the last year.
“There’s a lot of love on this album, there’s some party and there’s a lot of feel-good,” Kelley said. “I just feel like there’s a lot of hope in this music, there’s a lot of joy,” Hubbard added. “And I feel like although we recorded it a year ago, it feels like it’s so timely for where we’re at in the world. And we hope it brings some joy and love and good energy into the world, for sure.”
Life Rolls On marks the first time that Florida Georgia Line has worked with producer Corey Crowder, as they co-produced the album alongside Crowder. Hubbard said “It was just the most fun we’ve probably ever had making music. I mean, it brought back the joy and it was quite an awesome process.”
The superstar duo announced a virtual concert dubbed Life Rolls On From The FGL House, which will take place on February 17 at 9:00 p.m. EST on the Amazon Music Twitch channel. All proceeds from the concert will benefit The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Nashville Neighbors fund, supporting businesses impacted by the Nashville Christmas morning bombing.
Life Rolls On is available now everywhere.
