We officially have an album title for Cody Johnson’s next project.

In an interview with Audacy’s KMLE Country 107.9 (Phoenix) ahead of his headlining set at Country Thunder Music Festival this weekend in Arizona, CoJo revealed he has another double album on the way called Leather.

He says it will include 24 tracks in total, adding that it’s the “best round of songs I have ever recorded.”

Cody also says the theme of the album will be “fun,” so it’s safe to say, we’re in for some great stuff from the Texas native hopefully sooner rather than later:

“I wanna go ahead and sneak peek, I’m working on a new double album. It’ll be 24 tracks total. This round of 24 songs I have to say is the best round of songs I have ever recorded and I feel like that’s the way it should be.

Each album should outdo the last one. There’s some fun stuff, I think the theme of this new album is fun. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a ballad or whether it’s tongue-in-cheek kinda fun.

It all has to be fun, it all has to make you kind of want to move around and bob your head a little bit.”

Cody recently revealed that the record will include a duet with Carrie Underwood, after sharing back in early February that he’s been in the studio working on new music:

He most recently put out another double album, Human: The Double Album in 2021, which produced the multi-week #1 hit “‘Til You Can’t.”

And while we don’t have any sort of official release date quite yet, it sounds like it should be coming sometime in 2023.

Stay tuned…
