Luke Bryan Reveals Latest Album 'Born Here, Live Here, Die Here' Will Be Shorter so That Songs Don't Get Lost in the Mix
On Thursday, January 16, 2020, Luke Bryan took to Facebook Live to announce that he would be releasing a new album. In 2019, the star also revealed that he wanted the album to be shorter.
During his Facebook Live announcement, the country singer shared that his new album would be available on April 24, 2020. He also revealed that the album was called “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here.”
The "What She Wants Tonight" musician’s album is his seventh one. Speaking to “Taste of Country” in September 2019, the star shared that the album would have pop and rock influences.
Bryan intends on having a shorter album
"I don't know if like a 15, 16 — for awhile that was the trend [his last 3 albums had 15, 13 and 13 songs respectively, not including bonus tracks] ..."

The previous album had hits like "Light It Up" and "Most People Are Good." “Born Here, Live Here, Die Here” will include the musician’s number one song "Knockin' Boots” among others.
