Kenny Chesney Lets Fans Hear Entire ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ Album
You’ll have to wait until tomorrow (June 19) to buy Kenny Chesney‘s latest album, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ but if you’ve been dying to hear the award-winning singer’s 12 new tracks, you’re in luck. Chesney has made the entire disc available for streaming online.
Eleven tracks are available for an exclusive listen at the album’s website, welcometothefishbowl.com. You can catch the 12th track, ‘El Cerrito Place,’ thanks to Yahoo Music. Between those two websites, you can get a sneak preview of the entire album!
Chesney and his entourage have been working hard to promote his 14th studio album by posting in-depth blogs about each track. The ‘Feel Like a Rockstar’ hitmaker has told several media outlets that ‘Welcome to the Fish Bowl’ is a more emotional take on his typically upbeat, good-timing lyrics.
One of the more emotional tracks on the album is ‘While He Still Knows Who I Am,’ a country ballad about a son returning to a father. While Chesney didn’t write the song, his powerful ability to both tell and be moved by a story drew him to record this song.
“This is the kind of song that touched me when I was young, and set me on a path to doing what I’m doing today,” says Chesney, according to his website. “It was songs like ‘While He Still Knows Who I Am’ that made me want to move to Nashville in the first place. I connected with it on a level that I didn’t see coming.”
Those of you who have seen the music video for ‘Come Over’ know that the country superstar gives his own take on a breakup song on ‘Welcome to the Fish Bowl.’ The song — and its steamy video — is wrought with emotion as the singer returns to an ex-girlfriend for one last fling that could potentially develop into a relationship.
‘Sing ‘Em Good My Friend’ and ‘Always Gonna Be You’ are also deep, intense tracks that stray from Chesney’s popular summery, upbeat style. Never one to be too serious, though, the album includes upbeat tunes like the live rendition of ‘You and Tequila’ with Grace Potter, and ‘Feel Like a Rockstar’ with Tim McGraw to give listeners a chance to rock out.
Of course, now that ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ is available for online streaming, you don’t have to take our word for it. Check out the album for yourself.
