(Radio.com) Chris Young returned with his seventh studio album on Friday (Oct. 20). The singer penned each of the 10 tracks on Losing Sleep, he also served as co-producer alongside longtime collaborator Corey Crowder. Following 2015's I'm Comin' Over, Young admits that he didn't feel much pressure to follow up the success of his previous No. 1 release.
"We were even more comfortable than we were last time, and instead of it being like 'We have to nail this,' now it was like 'OK, we did something really cool last time. Let's try and build on that,'" Young says.
Young's Losing Sleep continues the musical experimentation heard on I'm Comin' Over. Listeners can hear this on the title track which features slick beats and a steamy storyline.
"I think the experimentation I did on the last record was the most I had really done," he admits. "So with this one it was about continuing that. There's stuff like 'Losing Sleep' - which is really different sonically from a lot of things in my catalog - and there are going to be things that feel more familiar, too. Each song has a unique vibe and life to it."
He adds, "'Losing Sleep' is a sexy song, and that's a hallmark of mine if you look back. Once every so often, there's gonna be a sexy song in there, and this one is unabashedly passionate." Read more here.
