Blake Shelton Announces New Album ‘Bringing Back the Sunshine’

By Kurt Wolff

Blake Shelton announced today that he will release his 11th studio album this fall.

The new album is titled Bringing Back the Sunshine, and the release date is set for Sept. 30. See the cover art below.

Bringing Back the Sunshine comes hot on the heels of Shelton’s 2013 platinum-selling album Based on a True Story…. Like True Story, new album Sunshine is produced by Scott Hendricks. A new single from the upcoming album is expected to drop soon.

Shelton’s been on a major hot streak lately. Not only has he gained national attention as a coach on TV’s The Voice, he’s currently one of country music’s top hitmakers. He’s racked up 17 No. 1 singles so far, five of them from his album True Story (“Doin’ What She Likes,” “Boys Round Here,” “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” “Mine Would Be You” and, most recently, “My Eyes”).

Shelton is also currently on his Ten Times Crazier Tour, which has seen him sell out shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City and Wrigley Field in Chicago, among other venues. He also played a free show to some 60,000 fans in Atlantic City last night (July 31), and in October he will wind things down with a couple dates in Southern California, including one at the famed Hollywood Bowl.

And, of course, he’s cohosted the annual ACM Awards for the past few years and been nominated for ACM Entertainer of the Year as well.
