Available today, “Songs About You” was written by Eldredge alongside Jessie Jo Dillion and Ben West. “There are songs that just transport you back in time to a moment with someone you love,” said Eldredge. “Even though you’ve not been with the person for a long time, these songs take a hold of you. You might be having a fine day, then you walk into a store where the song is playing, and you’re transported into the past.”
“Songs About You” is also the title track for Eldredge’s new album that will be released June 17 (PRE-ORDER HERE). The album will feature 12 songs co-written by Eldredge including the previously released “Want That Back” and “Holy Water.” “I knew exactly what I wanted to say and what I wanted the album to sound like,” said Eldredge of the new album. “I wanted the album to be songs that connect us all in the human experience. These are emotions that are reflective of each of us. There are songs of solitude, joy and heartbreak, and I like that tension.
Songs About You is about the songs that instantly recall your own experiences. The songs that can make you remember exactly how you felt, or the sights around you or the smells in the air. The songs that make you remember all the happiness and the heartbreak.”
Eldredge’s growing popularity in the U.K. saw him headline C2C (Country To Country) Festival in 2019, followed by a highly successful UK tour in January/February 2020 which included a stop at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. He makes a very welcome return to the UK for shows in May 2022:
