Eric Paslay has released a brand-new single, "Angels in This Town." The song will appear on the singer's sophomore album, Dressed in Black.

"Angels in This Town" was written by Paslay, Corey Crowder and Erik Dylan, and it's a bit of a departure from Paslay's last single, "High Class": Instead of being a party anthem, "Angels in This Town" hopes to be a happy note in a world full of tragedy.

"Call it what you want / But I know the truth / Angels in this town / Looking out for me and you," Paslay sings in the song's chorus. "All I know is / I wouldn't be here now / Call it what you want / I swear there's angels in this town."

“As of late, our world has been impacted by tragedy of all kinds," Paslay says in a press release. "I’m so grateful we can use “Angels in This Town” to shine a light on all the good that happens every day in our world. I’m excited for it to be heard and for it to bring hope and positivity into people’s lives."

"Angels in This Town" is available now on iTunes.
