Brad Paisley’s New Album Will Also Include Mick Jagger
Brad Paisley's next album will also feature collaborations with two classic rockers and a famous pop music producer. The country singer says Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and Timbaland also show up in various ways on his 11th studio album.
On Friday morning, he released his duet with Demi Lovato. "Without a Fight" features the two tied in harmony during a song that is about the good and bad of the fights couples have. During an interview with Taste of Country Nights' Sam Alex, Paisley — a Country Jam 2016 headliner — revealed the full album is collaboration heavy.
“Mick Jagger has a song on there with me that is gonna flip you out," he says. "John Fogerty and I have been writing, and wait till you hear that. Timbaland, then Demi."
Fans may recall Paisley opened for the Rolling Stones last June in Nashville, and Jagger has been spotted numerous times in Music City over the last year. Just last month Paisley tweeted with great enthusiasm about Fogerty's debut at the Grand Ole Opry. As for Timbaland (producer and songwriter for Jay Z, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and more), he's just looking to push his artistry.
"I wanted the collaborations on this record to be collaborations that took me outside of what you’d typically think and brought that other world into this, but it’s also very country," Paisley says.
He is no stranger to collaborations. Some of his best include Carrie Underwood(“Remind Me”), Alison Krauss (“Whiskey Lullaby”) Dolly Parton (“When I Get Where I’m Going”) and Keith Urban (“Start a Band”). He says he's been working on the album all spring. Next week he'll begin his Life Amplified Tour, which will take him to Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo. on June 17.
