It’s a soulful, swampy, sing-along jam called “We Sweat.”
And it proves the Season 7 winner of The Voice wasn’t joking when he said his post-show debut album will break down some genre boundaries.
“The Voice really opened up my eyes that I wasn’t just an outlaw country guy,” Craig said in a recent interview with The Huffington Post. “I matured as an artist during that time and realized that my music could be open to more than just a country audience.”
“Top Shelf” is due out Oct. 27 and also features lead single “Stuck in My Head,” a song Craig released a couple of weeks ago.
The album is available for pre-order now. Anyway doing so gets the two songs already released as instant downloads.
Of course, this is an album fans have been awaiting for quite a while. It’s been three years since Craig won The Voice, but his post-show label deal didn’t work out.
He’ll be releasing the album under the Copperline Music Group banner. And it’ll include a duet with Taylor Borland, Craig’s wife, on a tune called “Somewhere in There,” which he says she inspired. The couple had a daughter in January.
Here’s the new song.
