Midland fans, your wait is almost over.

The country music trio from Dripping Springs will release their debut album, “On the Rocks,” through Big Machine Label Group on Sept. 22, according to a news release from the label.

The 13-track album will feature all of the songs from Midland’s EP, plus eight more songs all written or co-written by the band’s three members Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson. Rhett Akins also shares a songwriting credit on one of the songs.

Lead single “Drinkin’ Problem” has already been certified Gold and is currently sitting at No. 8 on Billboard’s “Hot Country Songs” chart

Fans of Midland’s debut EP can expect more of the same revivalist, throwback sound with some more Eagles influences.

From the news release:

The songs of ‘On the Rocks’ range from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose desert campfire jams. Lead single ‘Drinkin' Problem’ – now certified Gold – was written by the trio with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne and provides country music with the definitive drinking tune of 2017. ‘Make a Little,’ a rollicking love song, soars with the brotherly harmonies of Wystrach, Duddy and Carson, while ‘Something on the Wind’ recalls the Eagles' iconic intro to ‘Seven Bridges Road.’ ‘Check Cashin' Country,’ a solo composition by Carson, is the band's true-life road diary: the tale of a country-rock band trying to make time to sleep as they hustle from gig to gig.

"On the Rocks” is produced by Dann Huff, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Midland will perform on “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!” this Wednesday and will tour with Jon Pardi this fall on the CMT On Tour.
