Superstar Teams Up with Katy Perry on Sixth Studio Album's Title Track as Lead Single “Slow Down Summer” Ascends Into Top 25 at Country Radio
Nashville, TN - January 14, 2022 — GRAMMY® Awards nominee Thomas Rhett is unveiling details today for WHERE WE STARTED— the superstar’s upcoming sixth studio album available on April 1(The Valory Music Co). Inspired by his return to the road — after foregoing live fan-filled arenas across the globe for his living room in Nashville like so many — the albummarks a similar return to Thomas Rhett's in-the-moment mix of tempo, transcendent romance and tip-of-the-spear sonic trailblazing, as country’s resident good-life philosopher shakes away a year-plus of off-stage dust. Fans can pre-order the album HERE beginning today and will instantly receive two new tracks, the poetic ballad “Angels” and foot-tapping “Church Boots." Fans can also pre-order exclusive autographed bundles now at https://tr.lnk.to/WhereWeStarted_Shop. “For me, getting into the entertainer headspace and back onstage was euphoria,” Thomas Rhett explains. "When you go a year and a half without it, then feel it for the first time again, it’s the coolest thing in the world. That’s really where my brain has been and where these songs came from — they’re some of my favorite songs that I've ever been a part of. I’m just enjoying life so much right now, getting to be a dad, collaborating with incredible artists, playing shows with my friends, and watching people smile from the stage. It has really filled my soul.”
Featuring 15 songs, all but one co-written by Thomas Rhett, the project highlights his signature infusion of country tradition with kinetic romantic energy. Mixing raw, unfiltered joy with his uniquely personal, small-town Shakespeare writing — with producer Dann Huff returning alongside co-producers Jesse Frasure and Matt Dragstrem — the project enlists superstar Katy Perry for the dramatic root-pop title track, while also tapping collaborations with Riley Green, Tyler Hubbard and Russell Dickerson.
