Randy Houser is giving fans a taste of what they'll hear from him on his upcoming album with the release of the project's first single, "We Went."

The song follows the singer's 2014 hit "Like a Cowboy," and Houser keeps the cowboy/outlaw theme going in the new tune, which features a storyline reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde. The adrenaline-fueled adventure story of a song was penned by Justin Wilson, Matt Rogers and John King.

"I wanted to lead with "We Went" as the first single from the new record because it was so different for me. The song is about hanging out, a little bit of danger, running from the cops — all things I grew up doing. Well, maybe avoiding the cops is more accurate," the singer tells Rolling Stone Country. "But rhythmically and lyrically, it's more progressive than what I've ever done. Justin told me they put this song together like a puzzle, and I think they did a great job with the alliteration and how the lyrics fit together seamlessly."

"We Went" will be available for purchase and streaming beginning May 18. The title of Houser's upcoming album, which will be his fourth studio release, has yet to be announced, but the record is expected to be released later this year via Stoney Creek Records.

Houser is set to hit the road with Luke Bryan and Dustin Lynch on Bryan's Kick the Dust Up Tour, which begins May 8 in Grand Forks, N.D. He recently revealed his engagement to Tatiana Starzynski, Dallas Davidson’s sister-in-law.
