Only just last week Kenny Chesney announced an October release for his new album Some Town Somewhere but now the Country star has decided to rename the record.
Cosmic Hallelujah, as the record is now known, will still arrive on 28th October 2016. Chesney made the announcement on Good Morning America surprising hosts hosts Ginger Zee and Jesse Palmer.
“The more I listened, the more these songs’ energy – especially Setting The World On Fire – took hold,” Chesney said. “Some Town Somewhere is a great title, and it’s every single one of us. But then there’s how the album fits together, and even expands on what the last album did. So, I could go with what was already in place, or I could grab the title that felt the most right.
“In the end, these album titles are around for a very long time. I really try to have titles that give people a sense of what the music is, and what the album is all about. There sure is a lot of Some Town Somewhere for sure, but really when I pulled back and listened: these songs are all about taking The Big Revival to the next level; that level is Cosmic Hallelujah.”
“You can get so caught up in all of the rushing, the racing around,” Chesney allows. “Or you can use all that momentum and repel against it, use its energy to experience the rush of being absolutely in the moment. For everyone in the No Shoes Nation, when I look out, that’s what I see: people who’re so completely alive, everything coming off them is like a giant cosmic hallelujah!”
Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour runs through August 26-27 when it wraps up at Boston’s Gillette Stadium.
