Morgan Wallen wasn’t kidding when he told fans on Twitter recently that he was thinking of putting out a double album.

On the heels of his New Artist of the Year victory at Wednesday night’s CMA Awards show, Morgan has announced a massive, two-disc project, Dangerous, which is due out on January 8. All told, the album consists of 30 songs, plus two Target exclusive bonus tracks.

A look at Dangerous’ songwriter credits reveals some pretty familiar names, including Thomas RhettHardyDevin DawsonRyan Hurd and Eric Church. But that isn’t all: Morgan also teamed up with a couple of duet partners for the project, including singer-songwriter Ben Burgess on a song called “Outlaw,” and Chris Stapleton on “Only Thing That’s Gone.”

Morgan explains that while the prospect of putting out a double album started as a joke, that joke turned real once quarantine hit and he found himself with a massive cache of songs on his hands.

“I know 32 (eventual) songs sounds like a lot to digest, but I truly did my best to make sure that there’s not a song I would press ‘next’ one,” he explains, pointing that some of the tracks on Dangerous -- like “7 Summers,” “More Than My Hometown” and his Jason Isbell cover, “Cover Me Up” -- won’t be new to fans.
