Rising country superstar Cole Swindell’s forthcoming album, You Should Be Here, is available for pre order now. The twelve-song collection, including its multi-week #1 hit and title track, was produced again by songwriter and fellow musician Michael Carter. You Should Be Here, the follow-up to Swindell’s Platinum certified self-titled debut, is being released May 6th (Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville) celebrating with five songs available for fans who pre-order the album. Those who pre-order now will instantly get a download of the title track, and every week beginning this Friday with “Flatliner,” a brand new track will be delivered leading up to the release date.
“You Should Be Here,” which Swindell performed at Sunday’s 51st Academy of Country Music Awards, again tops the Billboard Country Chart for the second week in a row, along with topping the Mediabase Country Chart this week. Swindell’s fifth consecutive No. 1 single of his solo career also keeps its #1 position on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart (which includes streaming, radio airplay and digital sales) for the fourth week. The career-defining single, co-written by Swindell and Ashley Gorley, has sold over 460,000 copies and racked up more than 25 million streams. The video for the song has streamed over 12 million times on Swindell’s YouTube channel alone.
Revealing his album cover and tracklisting (full track list below) directly to fans this weekend from the ACM’s, Swindell also launched his “You Should Be Here” Scavenger Hunt with Shazam, representing the first musical artist ever to do so. Fans can Shazam select Cole Swindell images and audio now through April 18th for a chance to win a trip to New York City for his album release.
“You Should Be Here” follows Swindell’s first four consecutive No. 1 singles as a solo artist (including his latest Gold-certified No. 1 smash “Let Me See Ya Girl,” along with Platinum-certified mega hits “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” and “Chillin’ It”), all from his Platinum-certified self-titled debut album.
In the two short years since debuting his self-titled debut album, Swindell has earned over 250 million streams and sold over 4 million tracks. Additionally, he has co-written eight of the biggest No. 1 songs in country music for some of the format’s hottest starts, including his five chart-toppers as well as Luke Bryan’s “Rollercoaster,” Florida Georgia Line’s “This Is How We Roll” and Thomas Rhett’s “Get Me Some of That.”
