Tim McGraw Drops Big Hint About New Album on Social Media
If you're feeling the post-holiday blues after the long Labor Day weekend, it's time to perk up because Tim McGraw has revealed another detail about his upcoming brand-new album.
On Monday (Sept. 7), the singer shared a cryptic message on social media: It's a photo (which you can see above) of McGraw standing in a white structure, and on a wall, a message reads "11-6-15." McGraw's website also notes that "new McGraw music" is coming on that date; however, there's no information about whether the new tunes will be only a single or his full album.
McGraw first began talking about his new music in May, even though his last album, Sundown Heaven Town, hadn't even been out a full year.
"I think music is always a progression — it kind of shows where you’ve gone, where you’re at and where you’re going,” he explains. “And that’s what I try to do with my music. Art reflects life, life reflects art — you know the old saying. And that’s certainly true when you’re making music, just about as much as anything.
“Music sort of puts you in a place in time,” McGraw adds. “All I try to do is get better in the studio and get better as an artist, get better as a communicator and try to please myself as much as anything.”
McGraw released a new single, "Top of the World," at the beginning of August and has revealed its lyric video as well. The mid-tempo track explains that if you have the right person by your side in life, the rest just doesn't matter.
“‘Cause when ya got love like we got love / I’m holding onto heaven, holding onto you / When you got one like I got one / Anywhere you’re looking, it’s a hell of a view,” McGraw sings. “Don’t know where we’re gonna be / But I know we’re gonna be / Sittin’ on top of the world / So keep hanging on to me / Yeah, don’t you wanna be / Sittin’ on top of the world?”
The 48-year-old country star will wrap up his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour on Sept. 19 in Irvine, Calif.
