Good news for Gary Allan fans who have been burning holes into their copies of his last eight albums. New music is finally on its way, and it could be in your hands as soon as this year! Earlier this week (Feb. 27), Allan held a press conference in Nashville from his high-end mens clothing boutique, the Label, to discuss his year that he has mapped out thus far, including his headlining slot on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour.

Of course, we couldn’t let him get away without giving us something to look forward to — and he delivered, promising a new full-length album. “I’ve recorded about a fourth of my new album, so we’re in the middle of working on it now,” Allan told Taste of Country. “I go in and track it at the end of this month with [my producer] Jay Joyce, [so] that’ll be something new.”

Allan has been taking some of the new tunes and working them into his live shows in recent months, not only to give fans something new, but to see the reaction to his new babies. It’s all part of Allan’s new-and-improved show that he has been delivering since the release of his 2010 album, ‘Get Off on the Pain.’

In addition to the new songs, Allan has also spruced up his live performance with new band members. “I just revamped my whole show, so there will be some new things there,” he reveals. “I changed the set list, so I have new songs in my set now. I’m also playing songs that I haven’t even recorded yet that will probably be recorded this month, but I’ve started playing them in shows just to test them out with audiences.”

Allan will have plenty of feedback from the ones who matter starting May 18, when the Throwdown Tour kicks off in Gulfport, Miss. Other artists on the all-star lineup will include Josh Thompson, Sunny Sweeney, Justin Moore, Rodney Atkins, Eric Paslay and Florida Georgia Line.
