With Tyler Childers‘ new album Country Squire dropping this past Friday, the next big circle on my calendar is October 4th… the day Cody Jinks is supposed to release his upcoming album, After The Fire.

Back in April, Cody shared a few pics from Sonic Ranch, the iconic recording studio in Tornillo, Texas. He tweeted later in June that he was ending back into the studio to finish his upcoming album, After The Fire, which would be released on October 4th. Subsequently thereafter, Cody shared a pic of himself fishing in Alaska, assuring fans that the new album was finished.

However, if you’re looking for any information on After The Fire, you’re going to have to wait until October.

He followed that tweet up with a similar Instagram post, all but assuring fans that they won’t get an ounce of information until October.

“New Music October 2019! How many tunes, what, when, where, pre-order? You’ll find out. 100% indie / no label.”

Nowadays, it’s become pretty standard to release a single, announce an upcoming album with all the details, drop a few more tracks from the album leading up to the release, and then bombard you with press everywhere in between. However, from the looks of it, that’s not what’s going to happen here with Cody. Will it still be called After The Fire? Will it still be out October 4th? Is he just going to drop it on October 4th without an ounce of information prior to the release? Will he just make an announcement in October and push the release back?

It’s impossible to tell… and frankly, I don’t care. There’s something totally refreshing about diving into an album without any preconceived notions. Without hearing a single song, the entire album one collective surprise. And, with no label on this project, you can guarantee that Cody will do whatever he damn well pleases.

Get excited people. Get very excited.
