Mitchell Tenpenny reveals ‘This is The Heavy’ track listing

Album drops Sept 16th

Earlier this week, Riser House/Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville hosted a celebration for Mitchell Tenpenny recognizing his over one billion streams threshold (currently 1.3 billion), his first 3x Platinum plaque for breakout debut single “Drunk Me,” a Gold plaque for his debut album Telling All My Secrets and a Gold plaque for current Top 10 smash single “Truth About You.” During the event, Mitchell shared details about his new 20-track album, This Is The Heavy, due out on September 16th. The powerhouse vocalist co-wrote every song and co-produced the project with Jordan M. Schmidt. Mitchell has now revealed the full track listing along with a new song from the album, “Always Something With You.”

Tenpenny titled the album This Is The Heavy because the production packs a punch. “It’s big. It’s loud. It’s in your face and drum heavy,” Tenpenny shares. The project finds its own lane between a little bit country, and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, and is without a doubt meant to be turned up. When describing the sound of the album, Mitchell laughingly coined a new genre: ‘Farm Emo.’

This Is The Heavy is also heavy in the sense that the lyrics have weight. Within these songs are the stories behind both good and bad memories – exciting times in his life and ones that were tougher to get through. With this album Mitchell finds himself grown up and in a new phase of life as a touring musician, family man and soon-to-be married man. Balancing it all can get heavy. With equal parts highs and lows intertwined by clever lyrics and Mitchell’s distinctive sound with a bit of extra edge, This Is The Heavy is a project Mitchell wants his fans to get lost in, and find themselves in.

The album includes his hit single, “Truth About You,” that he debuted on TikTok. The song instantly became the highest streaming debut of his career with 2.5 million streams in the first three days. The number doubled within a week and the song has now amassed over 125 million on-demand streams. The continued positive reaction from fans prompted its delivery to country radio, where it’s currently sits inside the Top 10. Additionally, Tenpenny has a second single on the charts – his collaboration with Chris Young on their co-written Top 10 hit, “At The End Of A Bar.”
