Human The Double Album, the sophomore major-label release from COJO Music/Warner Music Nashville Platinum recording artist and ‘hard-driving entertainer’ (Billboard) Cody Johnson, is available NOW to stream and download on all digital music platforms (CLICK HERE). Physical copies can be purchased now by visitingcodyjohnsonmusic.com and will be released everywhere on October 29. Fans can also look forward to the vinyl launch of Human The Double Album coming this Fall.
The massive endeavor is stacked top to bottom with songs that were originally considered too country for country. “I had the freedom to go into the studio and record whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. Nobody was breathing down my neck telling me I had to get a hit or get a playlist or whatever, they just said go create an album,” Cody shared with Forbes. “I make music that I believe in from my heart and soul” he told CMT.
Prior to the album launch, Johnson shared a preview of the new songs with music industry friends and partners where he also announced that his very first holiday album, A Cody Johnson Christmas, will be available everywhere November 19. During the event Warner Nashville’s Ben Kline (EVP/GM Warner Nashville) described the album as, “An artistic statement, it’s a personal statement, and we think it’s also going to take Cody to the next level.”
The lead single from Human, “‘Til You Can’t,” will impact country radio on October 18 and was penned by Ben Stennis and Matt Rogers. The infectious, up-tempo track has Johnson advising listeners to take the chances, chase the dreams, bait those lines, put that diamond on her hand, and take those calls from your mama as long as you can, until you can’t. It’s the quintessential why-not-now song that will call Johnson’s loyal fans to action.
Earlier this summer, Johnson released his feature-length documentary, Dear Rodeo: The Cody Johnson Story, to select cinemas nationwide for a limited time before becoming available via the Apple TV app exclusively. Beginning October 12, fans will also be able to watch the film across multiple video streaming platforms including GooglePlay, Comcast & Cox cable on demand, Vudu, Microsoft and Amazon, moving to their Prime streaming service on devices December 13. Initial showings of the film quickly multiplied due to popular demand and a total of 239 theaters featured the movie across the country. Alongside guest appearances by Reba McEntire, Navy Seal Chris Kyle’s widow Taya (Kyle), and more, the documentary features Johnson opening up about his years on the rodeo circuit and how they fortuitously prepared him for life as a country star. From standing in the back of the chute at the rodeo or singing about it in front of 75,000 people, viewers are given an intimate glimpse into his real-life journey from the dusty rodeo arenas of rural Texas to some of the biggest musical stages in America. The film vividly captures all the emotional highs and lows that come from the dreams you cling to and the dreams you ultimately let go of.
