Clint Black will release his 23rd album, Out of Sane, on June 19.

The 12-song offering features 11 new songs co-written by Clint, as well as a cover of “Everybody’s Talkin’, which was featured in the 1969 film, Midnight Cowboy, and earned singer Harry Nilsson a Grammy in 1970.

Out of Sane is made up of all original songs, except for one cover,” says Clint. “I recorded it with a varied collection of musicians—some from my band and some with session players. I believe it’s one of my best albums ever and I think my fans will love it. They’ve been asking for new music for a while and I’m thrilled to finally be able to deliver after five years since the last studio album.”

Clint released the album’s lead single, “America (Still in Love With You),” on April 24, as well as a new video for the tune, which he co-penned with Steve Wariner.

“I wrote ‘America’ with my buddy, Steve Wariner, right before the shutdown and had intended it to be a song about unity for our country during a heated election season,” says Clint. “It has taken on new meaning in light of the pandemic.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
