Hunter Hayes To Release “Wild Blue: Part I” Album on August 16

After nearly 4 years since dropping his last album, the wait is finally over!   And we mean over – Hunter Hayes is dropping his new album, “Wild Blue: Part I,” TOMORROW, August 16th!   Hunter shared the big news on an appearance on the TODAY show earlier this week.  He also dropped the title track of the album, “Wild Blue,” which you might have heard if you caught Hunter on the Closer To You Tour earlier this year (IT’S SO GOOD).  If not, listen to the track now!   The song, and the album, are all about finding yourself and the true feelings of freedom and lightness that go along with it.


We’re even more excited because “Part I” means there is a “Part II” and maybe even a “Part III” on the way, which means even more new music from Hunter!   What was the reason for such a long wait?  Hunter took his time to really write everything on his own and make his most personal and honest record yet.  He initially set out with the mindset of creating an album that no one would ever hear, which gave him the freedom to be as honest and real as possible.   This honesty really shines through on tracks like “Dear God” and “My Song Too.”

Watch Hunter Hayes’ “Rescue” Music Video

It’s real, y’all!  Hunter Hayes just released a brand new song and music video!  “Rescue” is about the people who help get you through a hard time.  Hunter has been experimenting with new ways to release music in the last couple of years, rather than dropping full albums.  This is is first new release since he dropped 3 songs last Fall.  We caught him in concert last week and he told the crowd to expect even more new music from him this Summer!

The video features performance painter David Garibaldi, whom Hunter met at a CMA Foundation event.  David is working on 3 canvases in the background as Hunter performs.  He’s teaming up with Zappos For Good to release a line of shoes inspired by the paintings in the video, with proceeds going to charities including the CMA Foundation.

As usual, Hunter explains it best: “For me, “Rescue” is about people in my life who have shown up at a time I needed them the most but didn’t know. Times when I didn’t have strength and a conversation with a friend gave me strength. Every time I sing it, it’s a release and it’s a relief. I want the fans to hear whatever it is that rescues them whether that be a person, a place or even an experience. We can have so many different kinds of conversations with a song like this and I hope that this starts the dialogue. ”

Hunter Hayes just dropped the music video for his new single, “Yesterday’s Song!”  The track is the first single of off Hunter’s upcoming 3rd full length album (and it’s so good we’ve left it playing on repeat since the first time we heard it).  Hunter is always one to try out the latest technology to make more immersive experiences for his fans, and we love what he’s done with this video.  The video, in collaboration with YouTube, is a Virtual Reality video that shows Hunter in the studio.  You can see Hunter playing each instrument in the song, isolated: drums, guitar, vocals, sample machine, and more.

Hunter Hayes “21 Tour” Stops at West Point, NY

Hunter Hayes chose the stops for his current headlining tour, the “21 Tour,” by selecting venues in college towns where his music was popular on Spotify streaming.  Hunter is all about connecting with his audience, and for this tour he wanted to have a more intimate show and to play in front of some of his most passionate fans.  His plan worked.  The “21 Tour” stopped at Eisenhower Hall in West Point, NY over the weekend, and it was by far the craziest crowd we have ever witnessed at a Hunter Hayes show!

The packed house was full of energy from the moment Hunter walked out on stage, singing and dancing along to every song.  By the second song of the night, girls were up on cadet’s shoulders and rocking out.  Hunter’s epic guitar solo during “Secret Love” even inspired a little crowd surfing, something we never expected to see at a Hunter Hayes show!   (And we loved it.)

Hunter is one of our favorite artists to see live because of the emphasis he puts on his live show.  Of the (many) times we have seen him, we have never heard him play the same song the same way twice.  He likes to mix it up, adding extended solos and new vocal stylings, or just jamming with his band.   He played material from the upcoming “The 21 Project,” along with some old favorites including “Where We Left Off,” which he dedicated to the troops.

Hunter has shown lots of support for the military over the years, and took the time to thank and acknowledge the crowd, explaining what an honor it was for him to play at West Point.  And the love went both ways.  A spirited group of cadets in the front row gave Hunter & his band their hats to wear for a memorable moment on stage.

Hunter’s band got some much deserved love as well – after the crowd started chanting “dreads,” bass player Matt Utterback had his moment in the spotlight.

We have to thank Hunter for always mixing things up.  This was definitely one of the most memorable shows we’ve ever been to, from the beautiful & historic location to the insanely awesome crowd and of course the talented Mr. Hayes.   We can’t wait to see what he has in store next!
