Lee Brice will release his fifth studio album, Hey World, on Nov. 20.
Lee shared the news via Twitter on Sept. 9, saying: “Hey World, do you think it’s time I release a new album?? My new album #HeyWorld releases 11.20.20, and you can pre-save/add/order it FRIDAY. Also available Friday is the new version of ‘Hey World,’ featuring my friend @blessingoffor. Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music!”
The upcoming album’s lead single, “One of Them Girls,” is currently No. 4 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Lee released the album’s hope-filled title track in May to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The new tune was penned by Lee, Dallas Davidson and Adam Wood in late March after the guys found themselves inundated with a negative news cycle regarding the pandemic.
“We wrote this song from an introspective, truthful place and probably what most people are actually feeling right now,” says Lee. “With everything that is happening in the world currently and how fast paced we are as a society in general, sometimes you just want everything to stop—just to appreciate what we do have. People are suffering and it can’t be ignored.”
On Sept. 11, Lee will release a new version of the title track that features Blessing Offor, who was on Season 7 of The Voice.
Hey World will follow the release of Lee’s 2017 self-titled album, which spawned No. 1 hit, “Rumor,” and Top 20 hit, “Boy.”
