Chris Stapleton is gearing up for the May 5 release of his sophomore solo album, From A Room: Volume 1, by unveiling his new song, “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning.”

Written by Gary P. Nunn and Donna Sioux Farar and made famous by Willie Nelson, who took the song to No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in 1983, “Last Thing I Needed” is the only song on Chris’ upcoming album that he didn’t co-pen.

“I’m real proud of this record,” Chris told industry insiders during his album listening party on April 5. “We made it right here in [RCA Studio A] like the last one [Traveller]. We camped out in here . . . and had a lot of fun recording things.”

The album takes its name from Music City’s iconic RCA Studio A, where it was recorded during the winter of 2016-17. Dave Cobb, who produced Chris’ debut solo album, once again helms Volume 1, which features eight original songs as well as “Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning,” which you can listen to below.
