Luke Bryan is one busy guy. The 'I Don't Want This Night to End' singer is touring, releasing an EP for Spring Break, and preparing to co-host the upcoming 2013 ACM Awards with his good buddy Blake Shelton. As if that weren't enough, he's also been in the studio working on a new album, which he says is a major step forward in terms of his singing.

"A lot of times on my first three albums, we were so busy and had short time windows to get vocals done," Bryan explains to Entertainment Weekly. "This album, we had a month and a half or two months to get everything like we wanted to, so if my voice wasn’t feeling good one day, then we’d come in and sing a day later. It was really a relaxed environment."

Bryan says that approach resulted in the best vocal performances of his recording career. "Just from playing it for my band, a few people in radio, that’s the first thing that people say -- my voice seems to go to a new level -- and I’m excited about that," he states. "From now until the day I die, I will continue to try to get better -- a better singer, a better guitar player, a better entertainer, and better at this business."

Bryan expects to release the first single from his upcoming project to radio on April 1, with the album to follow by mid-summer.
