JAKE OWEN TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM AMERICAN LOVE ON JULY 29

Nashville, TN – The highly anticipated new album from RCA recording artist Jake Owen entitled American Love will be released on July 29, 2016. Today, Jake announced the release date and revealed the title and album cover for his fifth studio album via Facebook Live.

“It turns out Jake Owen enjoys singing about love on tour,” says Entertainment Weekly. “The subject is all over the album’s 11 tracks – new love, young love, breaking up, and sticking it out.”

“This record has been very enlightening because I found myself through the songs. I got back to basics with American Love,” he says of the project “This is me, this is what I want to say and this is what I want people to remember me for.”

Award-winning producers and songwriters Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman co-produced eight of the tracks (one of those with Luke Laird). For the first time in his career, Jake is a co-producer on three tracks with Lukas Bracewell. There are very special guest background vocalists on American Love, including GRAMMY, CMA & ACM winners Chris Stapleton and Hillary Lindsey.

The debut single, “American Country Love Song,” is currently No. 17 on Billboard & Country Aircheck with over 127K singles sold to date and has been streamed on Spotify nearly 6 million times. The song is emerging as this year’s summer anthem.

American Love is a new beginning for Owen. “Over the past few years I’ve experienced the unexpected,” he says. “My Dad received a cancer diagnosis and I, unfortunately, went through a divorce. People probably thought I would record songs that reflected those difficult times, but I found myself gravitating to songs that had more of a positive vibe and actually made me feel better by singing them. Music truly does seem to help the healing process.”

Jake has become a beacon of positive vibes through his uplifting lyrics and melodies, optimism, love of the beach and his youthful spontaneity.  “I can’t wait for people to hear these new tunes, “ Jake says with a giant smile. “We just added a horn section to my band out on the road and the energy I feel on stage with these guys takes it to a another level.”
