Ashley McBryde has announced her sophomore album release plans. Never Will is due out this spring on April 3.
The project is produced by Jay Joyce, who also worked with McBryde on her major-label debut, Girl Going Nowhere. The forthcoming record will include a total of 11 songs including the singer's current single, "One Night Standards" and her most recently released song, "Martha Divine." The title of the upcoming album actually comes from a line in the new track, "I Didn't, I Don't and I Never Will."
"Before we recorded [Never Will] with Jay in the studio, I said to my bandmates, ‘If we’re going to cut this and put it on the record, you’re promising anyone who ever listens to our music, we don’t listen to the noise in the background. We didn’t, we don’t and we never will. Don’t cut it unless you’re willing to promise it,'" McBryde recalls, adding, "And we cut it right then."
McBryde will hit the road for her "One Night Standards Tour" kicking off on January 30 in Birmingham, Alabama. Currently, the singer has ten shows scheduled running through late April in Helotes, Texas. Tickets for the tour are available now.
