Gary Allan has been in the studio working on his next album, which is the follow-up to Set You Free. His 2013 album saw him working with several producers and co-producing a number of tracks. For his new project, Allan is taking a different approach, particularly with producing.

“First off, I’m gonna do the tracks that I want,” he said. “Last time, I let Jay [Joyce] pick what he wanted, and then I let Mark [Wright] pick what he wanted, then I took the leftovers. I think I’ll probably cut what I want this time.”

Despite his do-it-himself attitude, Allan is willing to pull in his producers when he needs them. “I can hear what the song needs – like guys that I work with like Mark, he’s great at strings and making things big, so if I need that, I feel like I’ll go to him,” he said. “If I feel like something needs more funk than I can give it, then I’ll go to Jay. But I think I’d have to feel like I need one of them.”

Allan is spending the summer on tour, playing shows and festivals across the country.
