Young finds himself "Losing Sleep" with next CD
Thursday, August 24, 2017
– Chris Young will release his seventh studio album, "Losing Sleep," on Oct. 20 on RCA.
Young, 32, re-upped on his contract with the label earlier this week.
"I think the experimentation I did on 'I'm Comin' Over' was the most I had really done," said Young. "So with 'Losing Sleep,' it was about continuing that. There's stuff like the lead track, which is really different sonically from a lot of things in my catalog, and there are going to be things that feel more familiar, too. Each song has a unique vibe and life to it."
Produced by Young and Corey Crowder, the release is Young's third album in less than 24 months. Young released "It Must Be Christmas" last year. This is also the third time Young and Crowder have worked together. The new record features the lead single and title track, "Losing Sleep." Young had a hand in writing all 10 songs.
Young is touring with Jason Aldean as special guest on his They Don't Know Tour through October before resuming his own headlining dates later this year.

However, Young's voice is just too good to waste on mere pop. ...
Song selection can sometimes seem fairly inessential whenever chosen by a master singer. Such is the case with "It Must Be Christmas," Chris Young's new holiday collection. He sounds as perfectly comfortable with the jazzy "I'll Be Home for Christmas," where its supper club vibe takes a little of the edge off one seriously sad song, as he does with the Phil Spector rock nugget "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)."
Young is also helped out by a few special guests. ...
Chris Young has enjoyed steady success from his previous four releases, and there's no reason to suggest that "I'm Comin' Over" won't do the same. But that doesn't mean that Young is doing anything all that different from what's au courant.
Young's go to has always been his full-sounding, big-bodied voice, and that remains intact here throughout these 11 songs, 9 of which he had a hand in writing. His voice is front and center (that's apparent ...
