Jake Owen's upcoming new Greetings From...Jake album includes a surprise collaboration with Kid Rock! The pair sing on a song called "Grass Is Always Greener," co-written by Kid Rock and Owen. Owen just released the track list for his sixth studio album, sharing it on Facebook first in the form of a postcard.
"Y'all ready? New album out 3.29.19," Owen wrote. "Never been this excited for a record release. Thanks to all the writers and folks who've been a part of this. Love y'all."
Greetings From...Jake marks Owen's first release on Big Loud Records, and is the record he is most proud to have made.
"Greetings From...Jake is a pure representation of who I am, where I've been, what I love and where I am going," Owen told The Tennessean. "It's a fresh hello from a point in my career where I feel so comfortable and fulfilled. I cannot wait for everyone to hear what we've been cooking up.”
The news of Greetings From...Jake was a likely relief to Owen's fans, after he previously hinted that he might not make any more full-length projects.
"I'm all for albums; I love albums," Owen told All Access. "I think people that truly understand a great album and make a great album are very admirable, but I also feel like right now it's a world where people are picking what they want, and if you can give them individual, quality tunes, why not?
"It's no different than giving them individually on an album," he added. "People don't have the time and focus these days to hone in on something for an hour, so I'm hitting people three minutes at a time."
Greetings From...Jake includes Owen's previous No. 1 single, "I Was Jack (You Were Diane)," as well as his current single, "Down to the Honkytonk," which is nominated for an ACM Award, for Single of the Year.
