‘Songs for the Saints’ will be released July 27th.

Track listing:

  1. Songs for the Saints
  2. Every Heart
  3. Get Along
  4. Pirate Song
  5. Love for Love City (with Ziggy Marley)
  6. Ends Of The Earth

“I knew I wanted this album to show the spirit of the people, but I wanted it to focus on healing, on their gift to rise above such complete chaos and devastation,” Chesney said in a release. “They had no power, no real food, nothing; they dug in, started clearing the land and rebuilding. To me, that’s inspiring.”

“To let them know, they’re not only not forgotten months later, but we’re holding them up as inspiration — and offering help in any way that we can, including music,” Chesney added. “Because music heals, it inspires, and this is for them.”

Songs for the Saints features some special musical guests who have ties to the island: Ziggy Marley, Mindy Smith and of course, Chesney’s buddy Jimmy Buffett.

“Ziggy Marley and his family’s legacy hold so much truth for all of the people I know down there,” Chesney said. “Mindy Smith’s Come To Jesus was an album I lived with from morning to night when I was first going down there — and her voice sounds like an angel.”

As for Buffett’s contribution, it just made sense for Chesney.

“Jimmy, more than the lost shaker of salt, understands the poetry of the islands beyond what tourists see, the life in a way that made a song written decades ago so current. I’m honored they also want to help.”
