Sugarland’s Kristian Bush Working on Solo Album
“I need to choose a title, and a single, and take new photos, and design the album art,” he says.
Fans have no doubt been wondering about the plans of Kristian Bush, as Sugarland takes a break from recording and touring. Now Kristian has revealed that he, like his duo partner, Jennifer Nettles, will be releasing his own album in the near future.
“I am excited—and a little nervous—to announce that beginning this week, I am officially putting the finishing touches on my debut solo album,” wrote Kristian in a post on his website.
Kristian detailed his musical journey over the last couple of years, which has consisted of creating music for the video game “My Singing Monsters” as well as writing and posting songs weekly to his website. From that large pool of songs he has narrowed it down to a select few.
“The songs need mixing and mastering; there are new sounds to be added and maybe new vocals to be sung,” said Kristian. “And then there is everything that goes along with an album release: I need to choose a title, and a single, and take new photos, and design the album art, and figure out the sequencing, and introduce the music to my friends at radio, and play more live shows.” You might to hear some of those songs at Kristian’s shows, which he has scheduled through the summer.
Back in January, Kristian’s Sugarland partner, Jennifer Nettles, released her solo project, That Girl, and scored an impressive two weeks at No. 1.
