CJ Solar announced August 5, 2022 as the release date for his first full-length album, The Future’s Neon, on Raining Bacon Records. Produced by CJ with Nick Gibbens, the nine-song collection includes the current radio hit, “All I Can Think About Lately.”
“After releasing three EPs, I’m so excited for my first full-length album,” said CJ of The Future’s Neon. “Most of these songs were written during 2020, but a few have been favorites that were on hold in the past and slipped through cracks, so I’m glad to give them a voice. The project feels like a mixture of all of my influences, and I’m really proud of the whole thing!”
CJ co-wrote all nine tracks and partnered with Devon Barker, Kenton Bryant, Bart Butler, Frankie Courtney, Corey Crowder, Jackson Dean, Bob DiPiero, Aaron Eshius, Jeff Garrison, Blake Griffith, Michael Hardy (HARDY), Joey Hyde, Lynn Hutton, Jason Lehning, Jim McCormick, Billy Montana, and Lydia Vaughan on the songs.
Three tracks have been released to streaming services: “The Future’s Neon,” “Hungover Enough,” and “All I Can Think About Lately.”
The single is currently at #26 on the MusicRow chart, #2 on the CDX TRACtion True Indie Chart, and #43 on the Billboard Indicator chart.
CJ will perform a special album release concert at Nashville’s popular 3rd & Lindsley venue on Tuesday, August 2. Doors will open at 6 p.m., a special guest will perform at 7:30 p.m., and CJ will hit the stage at 8:30 p.m.
