Trace Adkins had two big pieces of news to share with fans on Tuesday (Jan. 24): Not only will he be releasing a brand-new album in March, he'll also be hitting the road for a tour!

Adkins' 12th studio album, Something's Going On, will drop on March 31; it will be his first release on BBR Music Group's Wheelhouse Records. Although Adkins has previously released "Jesus and Jones" and "Lit" as singles, and both will appear on the record, a press release reports that the song "Watered Down" will be the project's first official single.

"When I first heard "Watered Down," I felt an immediate connection with what I wanted to say," Adkins explains. "A man comes to a point in his life where he begins to reflect on his past and what he’s learned, and that's what fueled this song. If you've led the kind of life I've led, at some point you have to temper your vices."

Something's Going On, which is available for pre-order on iTunes, was produced by Mickey Jack Cones; songwriters featured on the project include Tyler Farr, Craig Campbell and more. Adkins last released a studio album, Love Will ..., in 2013.
