Rascal Flatts’ will release their 10th studio album Back to Us on May 19th and have revealed the official track list. In addition to the standard 10-cut version, a 13-track deluxe LP is now available now for preorder exclusively at Amazon. The ACM-nominated group, whose Rhythm and Roots Tour supported their previous album Rewind, will perform the new album’s first single, “Yours If You Want It,” on Sunday night’s ACM Awards telecast. See the album’s track list below.

Of the project’s 13 tracks, 12 were produced by the group, with bassist Jay DeMarcus at the helm. Lauren Alaina contributes guest vocals to “Are You Happy Now,” a track penned by DeMarcus and bandmates Joe Don Rooney and Gary LeVox with Sean McConnell. Chris Stapleton and Luke Laird contribute their songwriting prowess for the lively “Vandalized,” and busbee, who co-wrote and produced the band’s 2009 hit “Summer Nights,” once again contributes production and songwriting co-credit on deluxe LP cut “Hands Talk.” Also featured is “Hopin’ You Were Lookin’,” penned by fellow country stars Dan + Shay with Cary Barlowe and Jesse Frasure. The trio also offers their version of the soaring “I Know You Won’t,” previously cut by Carrie Underwood on her 2007 album, Carnival Ride.

“Yours If You Want It” was co-written by Jonathan Singleton and the late Andrew Dorff, who died unexpectedly last December at age 40. “We are so honored to be a small part of making sure his legacy lives on. We have a special angel watching over it, for sure,” DeMarcus said in a statement when the single was released at the beginning of the year. “Yours If You Want It” is currently in the Top 20 and climbing Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart.
