Morgan Wallen has unveiled concert dates for his 2023 world tour and announced that he will release not one, but three new songs Thursday night.

The country musician broke the news Thursday morning on social media where he revealed the titles of the soon-to-be-released tracks: “One Thing at a Time,” “Tennessee Fan” and “Days That End in Why.” His One Night at a Time world tour will kick off March 15 in Auckland, New Zealand, before traveling to Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.

“2023 is gonna be a special year… I got a lot in store for y’all and thought we’d start with this,” Wallen wrote on Instagram.

“Ready for y’all to hear what we’ve been working on,” he added.

What’s clear about the country musician, who touched down Saturday night at Arena for the first of two sold-out concerts, is that being caught on video drunkenly using the N-word has not derailed his career.

According to the announcement, Wallen will perform in San Diego on July 15 and Los Angeles on July 22 at undisclosed venues. Fellow country singer Hardy will open for Wallen in California. Other supporting acts include Ernest, Bailey Zimmerman and Parker McCollum.

The “Whiskey Glasses” hitmaker also encouraged his American and Canadian fans to sign up for Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan pre-sale for a chance to snag tickets early for his upcoming shows. (Ticketmaster is currently under fire for how it handled the Verified Fan pre-sale for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour, which sold out prematurely and crashed the website.)

The Verified Fan pre-sale is scheduled to begin Wednesday, followed by a general sale Friday.

After being largely cast out for using a racial slur, embattled “Whiskey Glasses” singer Morgan Wallen will embark on his Dangerous Tour in February.

Earlier this year, Wallen played Arena — his first L.A. concert since he was caught on video drunkenly using the N-word. The recording artist apologized for using the “unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur” after facing immediate consequences from radio stations, TV networks and his own record label.

He has since posted a record-breaking streak atop Billboard’s album chart, received the Milestone Award from the Academy of Country Music and scored a nomination for entertainer of the year at the Country Music Assn. Awards.

New music from Wallen is set to arrive at 9 p.m. Pacific.
