On Thursday, the 21-year-old announced her sophomore album — “I Don’t Believe We’ve Met” — will be released Dec. 1.
It’s the first album for the Season 4 winner of The Voice since her self-titled debut landed in January of 2013.
Today, that album remains one of the most successful post-Voice debuts, yet Danielle has been pretty much musically silent in the four years in between.
Which explains the title of the new album, as Danielle explains in a Facebook message to fans.
“I like to think of ‘I Don’t Believe We’ve Met’ as a re-introduction to the world — a musical handshake or a ‘nice to meet you,'” she writes.
“You do so much growing from the ages of 16 to 21 and I feel so lucky to have fans like you who waited patiently for me as I figured it all out. The songs on this record tell the good, the bad, every laugh, and each tear.”
“Sway,” the catchy lead single, came out in early June and just cracked the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart at number 44.
As for the album, it’s available for pre-order from Danielle’s website. All sorts of bundles are available, including a digital download of the album and a signed CD for $20.
And Danielle is promising fans who pre-order a new song each month between now and the release date.
Oh, and don’t forget, Danielle will be opening for Michael Ray and Frankie Ballard on the opening night of the York Fair, Sept. 8. Tickets are $20 and are available now.
