Brett Eldredge visited the set of Late Night With Seth Meyers on Monday night for the lively television debut of his current single, “Lose My Mind,” along with a big announcement.
After Eldredge’s performance, which the eclectic vocalist finished up with a bit of a nod to the blues classic, “Baby, Please Don’t Go,” Meyers revealed that Illinois, the singer’s long-awaited new album, will be released September 11th. The title is a nod to the reigning CMA New Artist of the Year’s home state.
“Lose My Mind” was penned by Eldredge with Ross Copperman, who also co-wrote the singer’s second Number One single, “Beat of the Music,” with Heather Morgan. To date, Eldredge has scored three chart-topping hits, with his first, 2012’s “Don’t Ya,” certified platinum for sales in excess of one million. Last year’s “Mean to Me” has been certified gold, as was “Beat of the Music.”
In addition to solo dates throughout the summer, Eldredge continues on Darius Rucker’s Southern Style Tour. His jam-packed calendar is welcomed.
“Our life is on the road,” the singer tells Rolling Stone Country. “You find your own routine out here and when you get with people that you love and you love hanging out with, it’s a beautiful thing.”
During CMA Music Festival in Nashville next week, Eldredge will host his official fan club party on June 12th. He then plays the big stage at LP Field the following night.
