NASHVILLE, Texas, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- George Strait is set to release the MCA Nashville album "It Just Comes Natural" later this year, marking the 34th album from the U.S. country singer.

Billboard said Strait's new album, due out on Oct. 3, has already helped him gain one new record as its first single, "Give It Away," immediately hit Hot Country Songs' top 10, moving Strait into fourth all-time with his 73rd top 10 hit.

Currently ahead of the country singer on the career top 10 list in the top 3 spots are music legends Conway Twitty, George Jones and Eddy Arnold respectively.

Also featured on the follow-up to 2005's "Somewhere Down in Texas," is "Texas Cookin'" from Guy Clark and "One Foot in Front of the Other," which was written by Lee Roy Parnell and Cris Moore.

The magazine said that the 54-year-old singer plans to follow-up his 15-track new album with a tour tentatively planned to begin in early 2007.
