– Tim McGraw released a new single today along with another track from an album slated to drop in 2019.
"Neon Jesus" was the first single of his upcoming release. He also put out the song "Thought About You."
McGraw released the music through Columbia Nashville/McGraw Music, his label debut. "Neon Church" was written by Ben Goldsmith, Ross Ellis Lipsey and Ben Stennis and co-produced by McGraw with long-time producer Byron Gallimore. The song is about a man who says, "I need Jesus or I need whiskey" at the outset to get over a lost love.
"There's not a misplaced word in 'Neon Church,'" said McGraw in a press release.
"Thought About You" was penned by The Warren Brothers and Lee Miller, and co-produced by McGraw with Gallimore.
"I love that there are no rules anymore, and I can give fans more music at once. I really felt that both these songs were ready to be heard and will absolutely give a sense of where I'm going with my next project. They're meaningful to me and show the diversity of what I've been working on musically," said McGraw.
McGraw has toured with his wife Faith Hill on the Soul2Soul World Tour since 2017.
