Frankie Ballard is teaming up with Spotify to give fans an advance listen of his new album Sunshine & Whiskey, being released on 2/11 via Warner Bros. Records. Beginning this week, the entire album is exclusively available to stream on Spotify. This special sneak peek also includes three bonus tracks; live acoustic versions of the Top 10-and-climbing single “Helluva Life,” title track and “Drinky Drink.”

This Friday (2/7), fans will have the chance to chat with the rising newcomer by tuning in to Spotify’s Soundrop app at 2:30 p.m. Central. To hear more about the guitarist-vocalist’s inspiration behind each song on the project, a commentary album and playlist of Frankie’s Favorite Songs is also available on the popular streaming service.

Recently Spotify named Ballard as one of their Spotlight on Country Artists to Watch for 2014, a nod which showcases artists from last year who made a strong showing on its viral charts.

Produced by Marshall Altman,  Sunshine & Whiskey is now available for pre-order on iTunes and Ballard has two fan packages available on his site, both containing physical and digital copies of the album; instant downloads of “Helluva Life” and the music video along with an autographed poster. The premier “Helluva Life Pack,” will be personalized to each fan and also includes access to a private online listening party and live chat with Ballard.

The Battle Creek, Mich. Native is known for his high-energy live shows and unique blend of edgy, country rock. He currently has dates scheduled through the spring, including a show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on 2/18. Watch for upcoming tour dates to catch Ballard in your area.
