– Mitchell Tenpenny will release a new EP this summer, he said today.
Tenpenny released "Truth About You" about you today. Mitchell originally previewed "Truth About You" on TikTok in May. The track will appear on an EP set to debut later this summer. No date was set for the release.
"We are nothing without the fans, and we listen to everything they tell us," said Mitchell. "This was a no brainer from the second we teased it because of the reaction and response from our incredible fans."
Written by Mitchell, Matt Alderman and Thomas Archer, "Truth About You" is the third new song Mitchell has released in 2021. It's the follow up to "Bucket List," which released in conjunction with the state of Arizona where Mitchell filmed the music video, and "To Us It Did." All three songs will appear on the upcoming EP.
