After months of anticipation, Tim McGraw has officially announced that his upcoming album, Here on Earth, will be released on Aug. 21. "This album is a musical tapestry of life, of us being together here on Earth in 2020," McGraw said in a video on Instagram. "It's little vignettes of different perspectives in everyone's world."
Here on Earth will be McGraw's first album with Big Machine Records since returning to the label earlier this year. In May, McGraw released the album's lead single, "I Called Mama," and he shared the album's title track on Friday along with a video which features people from all walks of life wearing McGraw's signature black cowboy hat and holding up signs sharing why they are "here on Earth." According to McGraw's sign, his reason for being is "to bring people together through music."
A press release shares that Here on Earth "provides a musical tapestry of life and a shared experience that we can use to connect all the different lives that we live, all the different parts of the world that we come from and use music as the universal language to bring people together." McGraw will begin his Here on Earth Tour on July 10 with special guests Midland and Ingrid Andress, but the tour was canceled in May to the coronavirus pandemic.
