Brett Eldredge will release his upcoming fifth studio album, Sunday Drive, on July 10.
The 12-song offering features 11 songs that Brett co-wrote, including the album’s lead single, “Gabrielle,” which is currently No. 43 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 12 weeks. Brett released a new video for “Gabrielle” on July 7. In addition to “Gabrielle,” Brett has shared a handful of songs from the project, including “Where the Heart Is,” “Good Day,” “Crowd My Mind” and the album’s title track.
Produced by Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, Sunday Drive was recorded at Shirk Studios in Chicago—about 180 miles north of Brett’s hometown in Paris, Ill. Songwriters featured on the album include Jessie Jo Dillon, Tyler Johnson, Ross Copperman, Daniel Tashian, Ian Fitchuk, Scooter Carusoe and more.
“I think you have to give yourself permission to do anything in life, to be brave a little bit,” says Brett. “I got to a certain point where I was doing something in repetition and it was all really good . . . but I felt like I wasn’t giving enough of myself. It took a lot of self-awareness to finally realize that if I do really have a lot more in me, then I’ve got to step up and I’ve got to take that step off the edge. And I think enough time of doing it the same way made me realize it’s time to do it big.”
Sunday Drive will follow Brett’s 2017 self-titled album, which featured Top 5 hits “The Long Way” and “Love Someone.”
