– Chase Rice surprised fans with the release of a seven-song EP, "The Album Part I" today with Part II to follow in 2020.
"I chose to call this 'The Album' because it's the first thing I would encourage someone to listen to if they want to know who I am as an artist," said Rice. "My career has been such a rollercoaster journey, but it's all led to this moment and these songs. So much of what I've learned, so much of what I've fought through - it's all reflected in this music."
Rice had a big hit last year with "Eyes on You."
"'Eyes On You' and 'Lonely If You Are' were both huge for us at our live shows before they were even on the radio," said Rice. "We've recently started mixing in newer songs at our shows - sometimes within a day or two of writing them - and we can feel how passionately the fans respond. It's clear that they're eager for more new music, so we wanted to kick off the new year with this surprise!"
