Win Walker Hayes’ new album Boom
Alabama native (but long time Nashville resident) Walker Hayes released Boom, his long-awaited, full-length studio album, on Friday 8th December, via Monument/Sony Music. Hayes, who wrote or co-wrote every song on the 10-track album, many with ambiguous song titles, chose an album title that may well be his only instance where the title might give away the meaning. “'Boom!' It’s my favourite word. It’s the first thing I say after I play a song from the album for anyone. So, it’s what we had to call the album. I’m just so excited to share another part of the story. Boom is available to pre-order now on Amazon and iTunes.
Boom is produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Shane McAnally. “You Broke Up With Me,” the project’s debut single, has already accrued over 25 million streams. At US mainstream country radio, it’s just hit the Top 30 and is climbing.
In anticipation of his new album, Hayes has also released “Beautiful,” and “Halloween”, a duet with esteemed songwriter Nicolle Gaylon. Before the album is released, Hayes will release one more track, directly to the fans who can’t get enough of what People calls his “irresistibly quirky” songwriting. Entertainment Weekly noted Hayes’ unique hybrid’s “genre blending” and NPR’s World Café raved Hayes is “writing these really autobiographical songs and delivering them in this way that feels very intimate, very close range.” Rolling Stone concurred, “…he writes songs that are damn near impossible to classify, and that’s what makes them so interesting.”
