Daughtry will release Break the Spell on Nov. 21, five years to the day that the band released its self-titled, multi-platinum debut album, which shot straight to No. 1, as did the group's second album, 2009's platinum Leave This Town. Two tracks have been released to radio: "Renegade," which is climbing the chart at Rock, and "Crawling Back to You," which was the No. 1 Most Added track at Hot AC this week and could become the band's fifth No. 1 at the format. Go Daughtry!
Break the Spell is a gleaming showcase for frontman Chris Daughtry's powerful, emotionally resonant voice and knack for relentless melodic hooks and big, anthemic choruses. Produced by Howard Benson, who produced Daughtry's two previous albums, Break the Spell gives the band room to evolve musically while aiming to satisfy its many long-time fans.
"Going in to the writing sessions, we said, 'Let's not try to sound like anything. Let's just write, and see what happens,'" said Chris, who co-wrote every song with either one of his band-mates (guitarists Josh Steely and Brian Craddock and bassist Josh Paul) or collaborators such as Marti Frederiksen, Busbee, and Bret James. "We came up with some pretty interesting tunes that sound nothing like anything we've done before. Even though some of them didn't make the album, the process stretched us and took us to new places. It was an absolutely inspirational experience." Wow, the way that Chris Daughtry described it made me super anxious to hear it!
More details about Break the Spell, including the track-listing, will be released in the coming weeks so stay tuned to here.
