Cody Johnson Reveals Release Date For New Album 'Leather'

Cody Johnson recently took to social media to announce that he will release his new 24-track album, Leather, on November 3.

“#COJONation, I’m excited to announce that my new album Leather is out November 3rd and is available for pre-order now,” Johnson wrote. He shared the album’s cover art as well, with a snippet of his latest single “The Painter” playing in the background.

The photo shows Johnson’s hands resting on top of one another on the horn of a saddle, seemingly referencing his rodeo background and cowboy lifestyle.

“This round of 24 songs, I have to say, is the best round of songs I’ve ever recorded. And I feel like that’s the way it should be. Each album should outdo the last one,” he explains.

The upcoming album will feature a duet with Carrie Underwood.

“From the moment I heard the song — and this was six years ago — I wanted to record it and I wanted to do a duet with Carrie, because I heard her voice on it,” the Texas native shared during this year’s CMA Fest.

“I said I didn’t wanna record it unless I could have Carrie on it,” he added. “And you know, I’ve loved Carrie’s music, but it’s not like — I don’t have her poster on my wall, you know? But when I heard this song, I heard her voice, and I just knew that it was gonna work out.”
