George Strait didn't know how to stay away!
After he 'rode away' over a year ago, Strait revealed in a press conference yesterday that he will be releasing a new album on Friday, September 25! He also revealed the first single would be premiering on country radio today.
The single, "Cold Beer Conversation", is the second track off of Strait's new album of the same name. Strait's vocals shine over the traditional country-sounding instrumentals.
Speaking of his new project, Strait said,
"I'm really proud of this new album. I think it's a great record. I always say thing, I think it's one of the best records I've done. I always shoot for that...You've gotta go in the studio thinking that way. So I'm very excited about that."
The lyrics in the chorus are playful and melodic. It's about friends trying to figure out life and girls while drinking a couple cold beers.
“Cold beer conversation / Just a couple of boys / A little time well wasted / Tryin’ to figure out life / Tryin’ to figure out girls / Tryin’ to find our places in this crazy ol’ world,” Strait sings in the song’s chorus. “A little truth / A little frustration / Cold beer conversation.”
There are 13 tracks on this new album, including "Let It Go", which was released in April.
