Hunter Hayes‘ debut album came out in 2011…that’s six years ago!
So, why is is taking so long for his next full album to get here? Because Hunter is getting it just perfect for all his fans.
“It’s been all the things I’ve really wanted it to be. It’s been this huge journey of self-discovery, all that stuff,” Hunter shared in a recent interview “It’s been good for my soul and I’ve learned a lot about myself.”
He added, “I think that’s the part that’s going to do this record the most good. It wasn’t just picking good songs or writing whatever songs we thought might be good enough, it’s about discovery.”
“I feel like I’ve got a little bit more to go, not long though” — that’s a great sign! “I can see, I think for the first time this month actually, I’m seeing this thing actually take shape and it’s been really encouraging.”
In between his debut album, Hunter also dropped The 21 Project, as well as a handful of singles.
Hunter and fellow country singer, Cassadee Pope, are pictured at the C2C Country Music Festival in London over the weekend.
“This past year has been such an incredible journey for me, both personally and creatively, and I can’t wait to share new music with everybody,” Hunter shared in a statement about his upcoming music.
He adds, “You never know where a song will take you or how it might affect somebody, and while we work on finishing the new album and putting out more songs, it’s really cool to have this one I wrote a while back come to life with a film and be able to share it in its own unique way.”
Whether you’re adorning cookies with miniature snowmen, sledding in sub-zero temperatures, or hitting a slew of holiday parties, we think you’ll love it. In fact, it’s so long, we’re posting Part 2 on Christmas Day!

The 25-year-old country singer just announced that his latest track “Yesterday’s Song” is the newest single from his upcoming, untitled third album.
“I’m beyond excited to share this new single with everyone,” Hunter said in a statement. “I’ve been on such an incredible journey this past year, not just musically but personally as well. There’s always been that next goal to reach, whether it was a single or an album or an arena tour, and this is the first time I’ve really been able to kind of step back from all of that and just let my instincts and creativity flow. I’ve waited a long time to get this new music out, and ‘Yesterday’s Song’ really captures that free feeling, that joyous realization that you’re moving on and starting this fresh, new chapter.”
