Chris Young Readies Ninth Studio Album —Young Love & Saturday Nights —Available March 22nd

Nashville, TN — January 12, 2024 — Multi-platinum, global entertainer Chris Young is readying his highly anticipated ninth studio album, Young Love & Saturday Nights, releasing March 22nd on Sony Music Nashville. Led by the Billboard and Mediabase top 40 and rising title track “Young Love & Saturday Nights,” written by Jesse FrasureAshley Gorley and Josh Thompson with a posthumous songwriting credit to David Bowie, the project is Young’s first new album since 2021’s Famous Friends. The forthcoming record also includes previously released sides, “Looking For You” and “All Dogs Go To Heaven.”

Pre-add/pre-save Chris Young’s Young Love & Saturday Nights album HERE.

At 18 songs, Young Love & Saturday Nights is Young’s most ambitious release yet, the result of countless writing and listening sessions. Young is a writer on 15 of the album’s 18 sides and is the sole producer on three songs. He shares co-producer credits with longtime creative partners, Chris DeStefano and Corey Crowder.
Instead of chasing trends, Young turns things up — emotionally, sonically, stylistically. The ballads hit harder, the rowdy tunes are more raucous, and the anthems hit new highs. “This is what this album felt like it needed to be for me,” he says. “It’s a little louder, a little more raw. Even the stripped-down songs are heavier. I love creating music and I love making it and the fact that I get to do that for a living is a pretty incredible thing.”

Among the new tracks on the project is “Right Now,” available everywhere today. “With a pounding pulse, sweeping strings, and a desire-filled delivery, ‘Right Now’ exudes strong-and-steady confidence,” declares Nashville Lifestyles in its January cover story on the prolific singer/songwriter. Co-written by Young with Chris DeStefano and Josh Hoge, “Right Now” imagines a couple trying to define where they are headed. “You’re in that in-between phase of a relationship going, ‘It’s late, I can’t sleep. I’m wondering where you are and you’re wondering where I’m at. Let’s not wonder about it anymore. Let’s be in the same place,’” Young says. The official music video was directed by Running Bear’s Alexia Stone and Stephen Kinigopoulos and filmed in Nashville – watch HERE.
The new album’s title track & Young’s current single, “Young Love & Saturday Nights,”  a “vivid love letter to summertime weekends, old trucks, dive bar bands, and crushes” (Associated Press), is currently climbing the country charts at #36 on Billboard Country Airplay and #39 on Mediabase/Country Aircheck. Tune in tonight as Young performs the single, along with several other songs, at 10p/9c on “CMT Campfire Sessions.”
