THIRD STUDIO ALBUM, DIFFERENT MAN, SET FOR RELEASE SEPTEMBER 9TH
“…an artist who will assuredly have a lasting, even multi-decade career” – American Songwriter
NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 22nd, 2022 – Global entertainer Kane Brown releases his new single, “Grand” today (listen and watch the lyric video here). The Andrew Goldstein produced track was written by Brown, Kameron Alexander and Mike Posner and will be featured on Brown’s highly-anticipated third studio album, Different Man, out September 9th (pre-order/save here). Earlier this week, fans got a preview of “Grand” when the track was included during the 2022 ESPY Awards broadcast on ABC (7/20) and the official music video will premiere on Tuesday, July 26th at 8:00 PM CST.
The album will feature a total of seventeen songs, including his current Top-5-and climbing hit single “Like I Love Country Music,” his co-produced track, “Whiskey Sour,” his #1 hit, “One Mississippi,” “Leave You Alone” and “Grand.” Additionally, the album will include twelve yet to be revealed songs. The May/June American Songwriter cover artist recently spoke with the magazine about his upcoming project, as well as his rise to fame, family, and going back to his roots with this new chapter of music.
Of the new project and Brown’s career to date, American Songwriter notes: “It’s this multifaceted foundation that has led him to be such a versatile artist, one capable of crooning like Garth Brooks and nimbly maneuvering on a track like a more conventional pop star…however, at the core of who he is and the driving force behind his inspiration and passion is his family, including his fans. For Brown, it’s a combination of a feeling he gives off to others and who he is at his core. Add those to the joy his music engenders to a diverse group of listeners, and you’ve got something.”
Brown’s third full-length studio album, Different Man, is the follow up to his #1 Billboard 200 Platinum-selling release, Experiment (2018), his 2X Platinum, 13-week-chart-topping self-titled debut album, Kane Brown (2016), and his ACM Award Album of the Year nominated EP, Mixtape Vol.1. Named “the future of country music” (Billboard), Brown became the first artist ever to lead all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously with the release of his debut effort, which garnered 7X Platinum-certified hits “Heaven” and “What Ifs”-the fourth and seventh most-streamed country songs of all time (U.S. Nielsen Country On-Demand Streams chart). With the release of Experiment, Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top the Billboard 200. The Platinum certified album yielded three consecutive No. 1 Multi-Platinum certified hits “Lose It,” “Good As You” and “Homesick.” Brown’s multi-song EP project Mixtape Vol. 1– earned Brown an ACM Award nomination for Album of the Year (2021) and an ACM win-his first- for “Video of the Year.”
The CMA, ACM, Billboard, AMA and People’s Choice Award nominee has earned seven #1 singles at Country radio and most recently topped the charts with #1 hit, “One Mississippi.” Also known for his collaborations, Brown has worked with artists including Grammy and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter H.E.R. (“Blessed & Free,”) DJ Marshmello (2X Platinum, “One Thing Right”), Khalid and Swae Lee (3X Platinum, “Be Like That”), “blackbear (Platinum, “Memory”), Nelly (Platinum, “Cool Again”), John Legend (“Last Time I Say Sorry”), Camila Cabello (“Never Be The Same” remix), Brooks & Dunn (“Believe” the super duo’s Reboot album), Becky G. (“Lost In The Middle Of Nowhere”) and Chris Young (Platinum, “Famous Friends”), the latter of which became Billboard’s 2021 year-end No. 1 Country Airplay Song and earned both Brown and Young a CMT Award for “Collaborative Video of the Year.”
