Today, multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY Award Nominee, Cory Asbury has announced his long-awaited fifth studio album, Pioneer. The 11-song project is set to be released September 15th via BEC Recordings. Drawing influence from Nashville’s music scene, Pioneer explores a new side of Asbury while maintaining honest and cutting lyrics that speak to the fragility of the human experience. For this record, Asbury co-wrote with a veritable who’s-who in Nashville including Lori McKenna (Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift), Shane Stevens (Lady A, Walker Hayes), Tom Douglas (Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert), and Paul Mabury (Lauren Daigle, Chris Tomlin) to create a body of work that showcases his heart as an artist. Pre-order Pioneer on CD, Vinyl or digital platforms HERE.
“I’ll always be the ‘Reckless Love’ guy, but my art has evolved. I’ve changed. I’ve grown. And hopefully after more than 3 years, I’ve got something new to say. After all, that is the office of the artist—to give language to the things we all feel and experience.”
In addition to the announcement of new music, Asbury has debuted the latest track from the album, “These Are The Days.” The deeply relatable anthem speaks to how quickly time passes while raising children and the desire to relish every moment we get. “These Are The Days” follows the release of “Kind” last month which has already surpassed 2 million streams, has been added to multiple editorial playlists, and has been featured as the cover image for major playlists on Spotify, Amazon Music, and Pandora. Listen to “These Are The Days” HERE.
