Reba McEntire has a new album on the way. The country superstar announced that she'll release Stronger Than the Truth on April 5.

The album, produced by Buddy Cannon, features 12 new tracks and will be released on Big Machine Records.

The record is McEntire's follow-up to her 2017 gospel project Sing it Now: Songs of Faith and Hope.

In a statement, McEntire said the album is a return to her roots.

"When I started selecting songs for this album, I stuck with that same formula -- go with the songs that touch my heart, and hopefully when you hear me singing it, they'll touch yours too," McEntire said in a statement. "I grew up on an 8,000-acre family ranch singing at dance halls, honky-tonks and rodeos with my brother and sister. I haven't gotten to do that in a while, so I'm thrilled to pieces."

The album features songs co-written by familiar names, such as Brandy Clark, Erin Enderlin, Jaida Dreyer and Leslie Satcher. McEntire also co-wrote a song with Ronnie Dunn and Donna McSpadden titled "No U in Oklahoma."
