2017 was a crazy ride for Jake Miller. After parting ways with major label Warner Bros. Records, the 25-year-old was able to get creative and put out the music that was really speaking to him.

“I have complete freedom now,” Miller told us backstage at Y100 Jingle Ball in Miami last December.  “I learned how to make my own beats and am writing the words, so now I’m just in my apartment with nobody telling me what to do. I’m writing, recording, mixing, mastering and uploading to iTunes straight from my room by myself. It’s really fun.”

Since being independent, the singer/songwriter has NOT stopped working. He released a killer album — 2:00am in LA — and toured the country with his band on the Back to the Start Tour last year. He also confirmed to Celeb Secrets that he “has a whole new album that’s already done” and is “planning on releasing it soon!”

Luckily for us, that album is coming sooner rather than later, as Jake JUST revealed last night that the collection of songs have been turned in and will be out before we know it!

“Just turned in my favorite album to date. 14 new songs. More info on release date coming very soon. Can’t wait for you guys to hear this!” he shared on Instagram.

Jake continued spilling more tea on his Twitter account last night, saying that we’ll get to hear him rap on the album. I’m sorry — is this Christmas morning OR????!!!

Keep your eyes peeled for more news on Jake’s upcoming album by following him on Twitter and Instagram. You can catch all of these songs live on his headlining Hit and Run Tour, which begins on April 13th in Tampa and ends on May 26th in Raleigh, NC.
