Home / Music News / Gary Allan Listened Closely to His Latest Hit to Find New Album Title, "Set You Free"


Gary Allan‘s upcoming album, Set You Free, doesn’t feature a title song called “Set You Free.”  While Gary has used song titles for the name of his albums before, none of the tracks from this new project seemed to work in that capacity.

He says, “You want to do something that captures the flavor of the album and doesn’t sound cheesy and says what you want to say, and I think Set You Free did.”

So, where did Gary come up with that title? That phrase, “Set you free,” shows up in the bridge of his latest hit, “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain),” and Gary thought it was cool to find the album title in the song lyrics.

The album title also sums up where Gary is in his life both personally with his family and professionally with his Nashville-based record label.

“I think it’s very symbolic of where we’re at right now,” Gary says. “Set You Free is the perfect title for us.”

Gary’s new album, Set You Free, is due out Tuesday, January 22.
