Wade Bowen has plans to release his seventh studio album this fall. While there is no release date for the project, Bowen tells Rolling Stone he is looking at dates in October. The album is the follow-up to 2012’s The Given.

“All the records I’ve done in the past have been very lyrically driven,” Bowen said. “I took more of a raw approach for this one,” he says. “It’s an album I can take to my live shows and really enhance it and have fun with it. This record has more energy in it than anything I’ve ever done, and that’s just from me trying to get in the studio and do something very different.”

Bowen is well-known for the amount of time he spends on the road, especially around his home state of Texas. One song on his new album, “When I Woke Up Today,” tells of the time he has put in to being a touring musician and doing what he loves.

“I just started analyzing the road and my passion to put up with so much to ‘make a dream fly!’” he said. “I’m still here! It’s like I tell people, the road has tried to get rid of me but I’m still here!”

Bowen is also working on a live album with Randy Rogers, set for release in early 2015.
