The sophomore effort from Morgan Wallen is available today!
Dangerous: The Double Album arrives with 30 tracks, and Morgan says each one will give the listener something different, “I felt every song is unique and told a unique story, and I was proud of all of them…so, we just kind of said ‘Why not’.”
Morgan shared that when the idea for the double album was originally brought up, he didn’t think there was anyway he could complete something like that — then 2020’s quarantine hit, and he did have the time.
Morgan thinks that the same time at home that gave him the opportunity to create the 30 songs for Dangerous: The Double Album, is the same thing that will create a demand in fans for new music.
So, having a maximum offering of songs at this moment in time, might be just what fans are searching for, Morgan says “Especially right now, I think people are really eager for music and they need music…I need it. So, I don’t know, it just seemed like the right time to do something like this. It was a lot of work, but it’s been very rewarding so far, and I’m really proud of what we came up with.”
The double album’s title is taken from a very personal song for Morgan, “I wrote that song after I got into a little bit of trouble. We added a love interest story, into the song, just to make it…hopefully relatable to a larger amount of people, but it’s honestly a song that I wrote to myself a couple of weeks later, it was…I felt like I learned some things. I wanted to write it to myself, like a letter almost. That song is unique in that perspective.”
Turning that lesson song into the name of this project just made total sense to him, “It just felt right…in a way, to be able to write a song to myself. It just seemed like this album…what a better way to describe the album too. Lessons I’ve learned, and things I want myself to know so it felt just appropriate to title the whole project that.”
When it comes to lessons learned in life, and lessons learned with his status as a public figure, Morgan is doing the best he can, “I wasn’t raised up to understand how to handle it…I don’t think my mom cultivated me to be famous, I’m just…still just figuring it out. Most of the time I feel like I got my hands on the reigns pretty good.”
