Jason Aldean sets "Night Train" for fall drop
Jason Aldean will reveal his fifth studio effort, "Night Train," near the end of his summer and fall North American outing.
The multi-platinum Georgia native will release the long-awaited new collection, produced by Michael Knox, Oct. 16 via Broken Bow Records.
"There are some surprises on there that might raise a few eyebrows, and there's also some more traditional stuff too," Aldean explained in a press release. "I don't like being put in a box, and I think with every record, we've had a lot of variety…'Night Train' is no different."
Aldean is currently working the road with his next performance Thursday (8/24) in Virginia Beach, VA. Twenty arena and amphitheater shows remain before his tour's Oct. 27 conclusion in Dallas.
Aldean, who took home two Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this year, released his Grammy-nominated fourth studio set, "My Kinda Party," in November 2010. The double-platinum-selling effort peaked at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of the magazine's Top Country Albums and Independent Albums charts.
The impending effort's lead single "Take A Little Ride" debuted at No. 12 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart earlier this month, as well as at No. 19 on the magazine's Top Country Songs chart.
