“TRANS AM” DIGITAL SINGLE AVAILABLE NOW: http://smarturl.it/transam
NASHVILLE, TN – Multi-platinum selling Country duo Thompson Square is back with a ‘racy,’ head-turning new single “Trans Am” and Rolling Stone Country is giving fans the exclusive first listen: http://hyperurl.co/umrlvq
After spending the last few months in the studio with legendary producer/musician Dann Huff (Faith Hill/ Rascal Flatts), the award-winning Stoney Creek Records duo has emerged with a crisp, new sound chock full of fire, attitude and sexy, arena rock-driven beats.
With lyrics like:
“I wanna hug those curves/
And show you what this motor’s made of/
Grinding the gears, 8-track blastin’/
I wanna hear you screamin’ faster. . .
“Trans AM” showcases a grittier, fun-loving side of the married duo. The song captures the brazen passion and energy of Thompson Square’s live shows, something fans have long since celebrated.
“This new music is a very tempo-driven project that probably represents us more than both of its predecessors,” says Keifer Thompson. “’Trans Am’ is a state of mind. It’s about liberation and not being painted into a corner. These new recordings show a more aggressive side of Thompson Square and reflects what fans experience at our live shows. It’s a lot of fun for us.”
“Trans Am” was co-written by Keifer and Shawna Thompson alongside Blair Daly (“Smile” Uncle Kracker) and the world-renown Nathan Chapman, famous for producing Taylor Swift’s first three albums.
Fans can purchase “Trans Am” at digital retailers now: http://smarturl.it/transam
