NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tim McGraw's latest studio album "Emotional Traffic," which was at the crux of a recent court battle with his record label, is set to be released Jan. 24.
The album features 12 songs including the No. 1 single "Felt Good on My Lips." McGraw said in a statement from Curb Records that the new album is one of his best he has ever made.
Curb Records had sued McGraw to prevent him from recording or signing with another label until he fulfilled what Curb believed was his obligation for a fifth album. Curb had argued that "Emotional Traffic" was recorded and completed too early. The label said it wanted McGraw's newest songs.
McGraw won a ruling in November that said he could sign with another label and record new music.
