Announced today, Josh Abbott Band are gearing up to release a new studio album featuring a ton of great songwriters. In addition to songwriting from Josh himself, Jon Pardi, Erik Dylan, John Randall and Troy Cartwright are just a few of the names you’re gonna hear on this new record.
And according to Josh, it’s the best they’ve ever been.
“‘The Highway Kind’ is the album I wish we had put out seven years ago. The lyrics, the melodies, the subtle touches; this album is the very best effort from our group. These songs were brought to life and curated to reflect where my life is now: happy, fulfilled, blessed. From love songs to songs about friendship, from ballads to bangers, this album has it all. They’re true-life songs. I hope people listen to this record and go, ‘Man, Josh is in a really good place around now.'”
The Highway Kind is set to drop on November 13th, featuring the lead single written by Erik Dylan, Troy Cartwright and Jon Randall. Josh and company cut the song at the last minute when the band was struggling to make other songs work.
