Chris Stapleton’s version of “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning” premiered on Friday (April 21st). The song, made famous by Willie Nelson, is the second track unveiled from Chris' new album, From A Room: Volume 1, which will be released on May 5th. The project is now available for pre-order digitally and with physical bundles. Each digital pre-order comes with an instant download of “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning” as well as the album’s lead track, “Broken Halos,” which premiered last week.
From A Room: Volume 1 takes its name from Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, where it was recorded during the winter of 2016-17. Volume 1 features eight original songs as well as “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning.” Chris premiered the song “Second One To Know” at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this month as well as the album’s first single, “Either Way.”
The full-length record is the first new music from Chris since 2015’s breakthrough double platinum solo debut Traveller and will be followed by From A Room: Volume 2, due out later this year.
