After two years of chart-topping hits, jam-packed shows and half a billion career streams, Big Loud Records star Chris Lane has released his sun-drenched “break from reality” (Rolling Stone), “Laps Around The Sun”, on all digital platforms. Aiming for a bolder, bigger picture on his sophomore album, the project features 14 songs that the North Carolina native chose based on meaning and personal connection.
Produced by Joey Moi and recorded with a live band, Lane’s “Laps Around The Sun” “brings out a different side of his artistry, highlighting the soul in his voice that comes through in both melody and delivery” (Sounds Like Nashville). Reflecting on the reasons he fell in love with Country music, Lane’s musical switch-flip is filled with stories both personal and universal told through lyrics as deep as the Atlantic.
Building momentum by releasing a series of undeniably infectious tracks, “Laps Around The Sun” has already amassed nearly 200 million streams. Lane gave fans an exciting sneak peak with the Country-to-the-core word play of “Fishin’” and shot of truth “Drunk People.” The irresistible groove “I Don’t Know About You” immediately skyrocketed to Top 10 on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart, while “Hero” captivated both fans and critics with its standout message of grace and personal conviction.
“Laps Around The Sun’s” lead single “Take Back Home Girl” (featuring Grammy-nominated artist Tori Kelly) sets the tone for the breakout talent’s next chapter, marking his third consecutive Gold-certified song. As the song continues to climb through Country radio’s Top 10, Lane and Kelly are set to perform “Take Back Home Girl” Tuesday, July 17th on NBC’s TODAY in the 8:00 a.m. hour.
Crisscrossing the country in a whirlwind release week, Lane brought his dynamic live show to Del Mar, CA, July 14th and will continue to bring it to Lexington, KY on July 17th and Hartington, NE July 18th. The engaging entertainer’s schedule is filled with high-profile fairs and festivals, bringing the musical escape of “Laps Around The Sun” straight to fans all summer long.
