Honorary Texan Chris Knight is set to release a new album, nearly seven years since his last. The new project, Almost Daylight, features 11 songs including a duet with John Prine, and vocals from Lee Ann Womack.

“I was determined not to do any acoustic songs on this album,” Chris says. “I wanted it all to sound edgy and raw, but to feel big at the same time. We kept trying different approaches until I felt we landed on what worked. The thing is, some of my songs might take a year of writing before I even think they’re ready for recording and I fretted about every one of these. I’ve never put a cover song on any of my records before, but there are two covers on this one. And I think it all fits together pretty good.”

Almost Daylight will be available on Friday, October 11th.
