Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville’s Frankie Ballard, in a first-of-its-kind partnership with Apple Music, is streaming his new album El Rio today in its entirety for a full 24 hours on Apple Music Connect.

The album is also available for pre-order beginning today and is set to release everywhere on June 10. Named one of Rolling Stone’s “35 Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2016,” El Rio was recorded at the famed Sonic Ranch, just south of El Paso in Tornillo, Texas. A six minute documentary piece entitled “Journey To Sonic Ranch: The Making Of El Rio” chronicles the record-making process in Texas where Ballard, his bandmates and his producer Marshall Altman immersed themselves in creating this album 24/7.
