Jerrod Niemann has been hinting that big news was coming this week with various Twitter teasers. A day after he tweeted an image of the dictionary definition of ‘high noon’, he revealed that his next album of the same name will be out March 25.

The big news was revealed yesterday (Jan. 23) via Sony Music Nashville’s Twitter account. An album website — free downloads, games and video content — was also launched.

The country singer’s third album and follow-up to 2012’s Free the MusicHigh Noon was produced by Jimmie Lee Sloas and Niemann himself. Lead single “Drink to That All Night” was released last fall, and since then the song has reached the Top 20 on the Mediabase and Billboard charts.

On his website, Niemann explained how he decided on the album title and his thoughts on his adversaries:

High Noon is a term that’s been in my mind since I was a kid. Growin’ up in Southwest Kansas, I actually lived in Dodge City, Kansas, where the old gunfighting days have such a historical value,” he wrote. “I mean, Wyatt Earp is the main street, and high noon, if you think of it, it’s always meeting your adversary at noon, and goin’ out there, walkin’ a few steps, and turn around and face what you’re most afraid of, right then and there. So for me, every time any of us make a journey in our life for whatever we’re tryin’ to do–in this case makin’ music–I just think, ‘okay, my adversaries are party poopers, and I’m about to face that so that all of us can have a great time,’ hopefully, listening to this record.”
