Hunter Hayes' new album, called Wild Blue (Part I), will be released this Friday (August 16th) on all digital platforms. He made the announcement during his appearance on NBC's Today show yesterday (Wednesday, August 14th) where he performed his current single “Heartbreak.”

Hunter said, "So, we initially planned to perform on Today and announce our October album release, however because the album was finished and because the fans were asking for more new music now, we wanted them to have it as soon as it was ready . . . and have it all, not just five or six songs.”

The album includes his four previously-released songs, including latest single “Heartbreak,” “One Good Reason,” “Dear God” and “One Shot.”
