On 20 July 2016, Hunter Hayes’ self-titled debut album became certified as 2x multi-platinum. To celebrate he hosted a Facebook Live event.

The Facebook Live event had technical difficulties half-way through which cut the performance into two halves.
He performed the entire album, track by track, in a studio where they are currently making new music.
Hunter Hayes acoustically sung every track from the album, starting with “Storm Warning” and ending with “Light Me Up”.
And we're live!! Encore Double Platinum Facebook Live party!

He also answered fan questions, some about his new album that he is in the middle of recording, as well as some personal ones.
His new album is currently being worked on; expect it to be out soon. No new tracks have been released, however, he has performed potential songs at recent gigs.
We may have heard a snippet during the Facebook Live event, although whether that hint was actually a hint of a potential song off the new album, who knows?
Hunter Hayes’ vocals were on point throughout, and he even forgot some of the lyrics, but that just proves he is human, just like the rest of us, and he pulled it back effortlessly.
