Country trio Gloriana have announced their aptly-titled third studio album, Three, to be released on June 2nd. Produced by Matt Serletic (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul), it’s the band’s first album since 2012’s A Thousand Miles Left Behind.
“We can’t wait for you guys to hear this,” said the group’s Rachael Reinert on their official YouTube page. “We know it’s been a really, really long time coming and I think it’s our best body of work so far. . . Super excited to finally get it out to y’all.”
The album’s first single, “Trouble,” is currently rising in the Top 25 of Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart. Co-written by Reinert and the band’s Mike Gossin, along with Jon Nite and Ross Copperman, the sassy track mixes country imagery and instrumentation with a grooving, danceable beat. Twelve tracks in total, Three also features songs from Nashville A-listers like Eric Paslay, Will Hoge, Josh Kear and Danny Myrick.
In choosing the title Three, the band, which also includes Tom Gossin, seems to be hinting at multiple layers of deeper meaning. It’s the group’s third studio album, it’s been three years since their last full-length release, and the group famously shrunk to three members when vocalist and mandolin player Cheyenne Kimball abruptly quit the band in 2011.
Gloriana scored their first hit in 2009 with “Wild at Heart,” and in 2012 landed a platinum-selling Top 10 smash with “(Kissed You) Good Night.” The band will play Colusa, California, on Friday as part of their summer tour.
