Ty Herndon Announces New Album, ‘House on Fire’
Ty Herndon fans can mark their calendars for brand new music from the artist. Herndon recently announced that he will be releasing a new record called House on Fire this fall.
Herndon has a longstanding career in country, beginning back in the mid-90s, and he’s back with his former label Sony for a record that has been a labor of love for more than a year. Herndon says the album is the most personal record he’s ever made.
"This album is 18 months in the making,” he says in a release. "The writing was intense at times, but we had a lot of fun throughout the process. This album is Ty Herndon to the very core of my heart, and it is without a doubt the most honest and vulnerable album I've ever done. It is an album about heart and soul, with songs that everyone can relate to. My hope is that anyone who hears these songs will catch a small piece of his or her life through the music and my story.”
The record, which is being co-produced by Herndon, along with Erik Halbig and Drew Davis, will include 12 tracks. Herndon recently signed with BFD through Sony/Red Distribution, a moment which he shared with the crowd when he performed some of his new tunes at the Nashville Meets London Festival.
Herndon has several No. 1 hits under his belt — including “What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment,” “It Must Be Love” and “Loved Too Much" — and earned slots for 20 singles on the Billboard charts. In recent years he made history as one of the few openly gay country artists, officially coming out in November 2014. He sang an emotional cover of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” at the GLAAD Media Awards in 2015.
Herndon's House on Fire album comes out Nov. 11.
