If you've been thinking that you haven't heard any new music from Josh Turner lately, you're right. The "Time Is Love" singer's last album, Punching Bag, was released in 2012. Since then, Turner has only released one single, his 2014 Top 50 hit, "Lay Low." 

As Turner's fans have noticed, he's definitely been "laying low" over the past few years. In a recent interview with the Albuquerque Journal, Turner finally explains the reason behind his long absence and why he hasn't released any new music in a while.

"If it were up to me, I would have had an album out in 2013," Turner says.

Turner reveals that he's been working on a new album since January 2013, but that he was unable to release it due to some factors he simply couldn't control.

"There have been a lot of business issues that have popped up and I’m just pushing forward," he says.

The whole experience was upsetting for Turner, since he knows how much his fans have wanted to hear his new material:

"The new music is there and I want to get it out to my fans...The fans have been pretty anxious. Then I have to remind them that this is a business and there are a lot of things that I can’t control."

But Turner says that fans don't have to wait much longer to hear his new music. He's hoping to release a new single at the start of 2016.

In the meantime, Turner has kept busy doing volunteer work, and recently started a tour, something he is excited about. 

"We’re looking forward to this part of the run," he says.

While you're waiting to hear Turner's new music, enjoying listening to his single "Lay Low," which will be featured on his upcoming album.

We hope to see Turner's new album on the shelves sometime soon!
