Tate Stevens Album Cover Preview! (PHOTO) (UPDATED: Tracklist + Demo AUDIO!)

X Factor winner, Tate Stevens reveals the cover of his upcoming debut album, set to be released on April 23.

The self-titled album is produced by Blake Chancey and will include three songs that Stevens co-wrote alongside Ashley Gorley, Joe Diffie, Wade Kirby, Phil O’Donnell, Shane Minor, and David Lee Murphy.

I realize the album is a rush job, but Tate only co-wrote 3 songs? Even Phillip Phillips managed to get a ton of co-writes on an album he put together in 6 months–3 months while on the Idol tour

“For someone that has dreamt of recording and releasing music for over a decade, to say I’m excited is an understatement,” says Tate. I feel like the songs we selected for the album are a real reflection of my personality—they range from fun-loving to serious and everything in between. I’m so proud of this album and can’t wait for the fans to hear it! ”

Tate’s single, “Power of a Love Song” has been sent to country radio and goes for adds on 3/11.
