Fans of Chris Stapleton are gonna get a double-dose of new tunes this year. The troubadour dropped the bombshell on Thursday morning (April 6). His forthcoming new album, From a Room: Volume 1, is set for release May 5, and the official tracklist has been revealed, as well. The new LP features standout titles in "Broken Halos," "Up to No Good Livin'" and the ominous bookend "Death Row." Stapleton will issue the next installment, From A Room: Volume 2, later this year.
Volume 1 also includes a cover of Willie Nelson's "Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning," originally featured on Nelson's 1982 record Always on My Mind.
During a private viewing event on Wednesday evening (April 5), Stapleton discussed the new collections. “I’m real proud of this record,” he told reporters (via The Tennessean). “We made it right here in (RCA Studio A) like the last one. We camped out in here and had a lot of fun recording things.”
The new studio albums follow Stapleton's award-winning, platinum-certified debut, 2015's Traveller.
During Sunday's (April 2) 52nd annual ACM Awards, Stapleton debuted the lead single, the soulful toe-tapper "Second One to Know." Watch his performance on AXS.com.
