Known for his top-10 hits “Take It On Back” and “Little Bit of You,” from 2014 and 2015, respectively, it’s been quite a while since Chase Bryant shared new music.

Now, the singer has returned: His long-awaited debut album, The Upbringing, is due out on July 16.

It’s been an eventful journey to releasing the project for Chase, whose songwriting documents a tumultuous period of his personal life. He struggled with anxiety and depression and even survived a suicide attempt.

Now, the singer’s new batch of music is grittier, more true to traditional country and more authentic than anything Chase has recorded before. The singer had a hand in writing 10 of the album’s 12 tracks.

Before he releases The Upbringing in full, Chase is previewing the project with two advance songs: The title track, as well the harmony-laden “High, Drunk and Heartbroke.”
