Chris Young is celebrating the early morning hours on his new album, A.M, set for a September 17 release. He explains that in his line of work – and in his everyday life – the best times tend to happen after midnight.
“There’s plenty of great stuff that happens after midnight,” he said. “People have a good time, fall in love, work through problems and relationships, lots of good things happen after midnight and that’s why we called the album A.M.”
The title track, written by Chris, Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano, celebrates the party side of late night. “”A.M.” is a big fun ode to, we’re having fun, it’s past midnight and it’s on,” Chris said. “I love hanging out with friends, having fun, playing music, and that happens a lot in the wee hours.”
Chris wrote six of the project’s 11 tracks, including the tune “Goodbye.” Like “A.M.,” the song explores what happens after midnight, but on the relationship front.
“The girl shows up at 11:30 p.m. on her boyfriend’s doorstep in tears that they’re going to break up but he assures her their relationship is worth fighting for, it’s too good to say goodbye,” Chris said. “While we wrote the title track and ‘Goodbye’ in the same day, the songs couldn’t be more opposite in every way but they deal with things that happen late at night.”
