Chris Stapleton Announces His First Album Since 2017 With The Optimistic ‘Starting Over’

Chris Stapleton made a lot of music in 2017, the year he released a pair of albums, two volumes of From A Room. He’s done a few things here and there since then as well, like work with Ed Sheeran and Pixar. Now he has revealed his plans for 2020 and beyond, and one of them is a new album: Starting Over comes out on November 13.

He shared the title track today, an upbeat, acoustic-driven tune in which he yearns for a new and better life. Stapleton is also hoping he’ll be able to tour by next spring, as he announced a huge run of tour dates that span from April to November 2021.
