With his compulsion to get the music “just right,” Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah has taken some unpredictable turns— and some time. But in the end, the follow-up to his hit album The Big Revival has been finalized and is almost ready for public consumption.
Check out the cover art below!“I’ve been blessed with some of the best songs out there, some songs written, actually, just for this album by writers whose work I’ve loved for years,” Chesney explains. “When ‘Setting The World On Fire’ came together, it opened a window of time – and some songs that had come in after we were done, I didn’t have to save for the next album. Suddenly, everything was changing, and the album I’m releasing now has a lot of what made Some Town Somewhere capture the essential part of who the No Shoes Nation is, but really takes the your-life-is-now piece of The Big Revival and expands it.”
The superstar continues, “And there’s one very special song I’ve been holding for years called ‘Coach’ that we went in and re-cut. It really captured that song’s heart.”
Beyond his moving duet with pop star P!NK, “Setting The World On Fire,” and the creative blast of “Noise,” Cosmic Hallelujah includes “Some Town Somewhere,” the album title source’s percolating philosophy, “Trip Around the Sun,” the Tom Petty-esque coming-of-age, “All The Pretty Girls,” the breezy romance of “Bar at The End of the World,” the DIY get-out-of-towner, “Winnebago,” the homage to small town dives, “Jesus and Elvis” and the worry-jettisoning “Bucket,” as well as the priority questioning, “Rich and Miserable,” that’s Chesney’s most musically ambitious track yet.
