There hasn’t been much news from Kenny Chesney since the announcement was made last August that he’d take 2014 off from touring. But earlier today Kenny posted the following picture with the caption:

In studio working on new album. Can’t wait for everyone to hear the new music.

No additional details were given.

Here’s what Kenny said last summer about taking time off to make new music:

“I love touring more than anyone in the world,” Chesney tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I love the band, the crew, the whole team — and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”

“We have so much fun out there … with the fans, the other bands … It’s summer camp with guitars and a great sound system. And when we hit that stage every night, and hear the crowd, that’s the best drug in the world. How you take a year off from that is hard; but music is the reason I do all of it, so right now, when I’m coming off an album that took me places I didn’t know I was gonna go, I think that’s what I should be exploring.”

“You get to a point when you’ve made a lot of albums and you need to challenge yourself, to really make the record the focus, to ask yourself what you want to say … and not just cut songs because they fit what people expect,” he says. “It’s a lot harder to find those songs than you’d think, and writing takes time — to think, to live, to be.”
