Shinedown is readying their upcoming, seventh studio album, and frontman Brent Smith is giving fans an update about the new tunes

Brent Smith is spilling the beans on the upcoming Shinedown album. The vocalist says the new record, which will mark Shinedown’s seventh studio album, is in the can and will arrive in early 2022. The album will mark Shinedown’s follow-up to 2018’s “Attention Attention.”

“I can tell everybody right now, ’cause people have been asking about it,” Smith told Rock Titan TV. “So, ‘Shinedown Seven’ is completed. We’re finishing up a couple of things as far as the mastering is concerned with our boy Ted Jensen, who’s a mastering engineer in Nashville.”

He added, “So we’ve got a couple of tweaks here and there, but you’re gonna get a new Shinedown record [in] early 2022.”

The album will come at some good timing, as Shinedown are scheduled to tour North America in early 2022 with up-and-comer Ayron Jones. The trek will set off on Jan. 26 in San Francisco, California, on Jan. 26. Smith is currently on tour with Shinedown band mate Zach Myers with their Smith & Myers project, too, and that trek runs into December.

“The Smith & Myers thing, I have to say, it’s an interesting way that we’re able to… because people think in a lot of ways, they were like, ‘This is just gonna sound like Shinedown acoustic.’ Not really, it’s its own thing,” Smith said during the Rock Titan TV interview.

“The other thing that’s really cool about it is we have the blessing from Barry [Kerch] and from Eric [Bass] to do this,” he added. “And at the end of the day, it all works together. I think people need to understand, too, that the priority is always going to be Shinedown.”

During the interview, Smith also discussed what the band has been up to this past year. View the full interview below.
