The country superstar, who recorded his new album in a barn in his backyard, joined Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to finally announce what he’s calling the album.
But before he did, Jimmy offered up his own suggestions.
“I think you should call the new album Thriller.” Added Brad, “I was thinking about Red. Anyone named their album Red lately? It’s just such a… Will that do well?”
All jokes aside, Brad revealed the new album will be titled Wheelhouse.
“It’s all about leaving your comfort zone,” he says in the interview, ”It’s like… What is my wheelhouse? We really have tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch certain things.”
Brad has one month left of recording before Wheelhouse hits stores April 9th.
While he was visiting Jimmy, Brad also provided a new theme song for the hit TLC show Here Comes Honey Boo Bo. Don’t miss the hilarious “The Ballad of Honey Boo Boo.”
