Ryan Bingham will kick off the new year with a brand new record.

In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, the singer-songwriter revealed that his new album Fear and Saturday Night will drop on Jan. 20.

The follow-up to 2012’s Tomorrowland, Bingham said he’s more optimistic on his fifth studio release.

“On this album I find myself back in a more hopeful place and the songs are more stripped down musically,” he told WSJ. “Each album seems to be about whatever I have gone through in my life previous to recording it.”

On the 12-song album, Bingham tapped a new band and worked with Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty) for production. He also revealed a new song, “Broken Heart Tattoos,” which you can stream below.

Bingham said he’s referring to life in general on the track.

“Sometimes they’re like scars or tattoos that you have to live with and deal with. You can’t run and hide from them or wash them off,” he explained. “There’s no way to remove them from your soul.”

The album marks Bingham’s fourth studio album. Junky Star, released in 2010, remains his top-charting album at No. 2 on Billboard‘s country albums chart.
