Is it November 13th yet?

Chris Stapleton is gearing up to release another track off his 4th studio album Starting Over. So far, we’ve heard the title track, “Starting Over,” and another new one titled “Cold” that was not quite what we’re used to hearing from Chris.

And now this week, Chris will be releasing another new one, a swampy, rock n’ roll face-melter titled, “Arkansas.”

Chris performed it live during the tour this past fall, and he was joined by the extremely talented Brothers Osborne.

“It wasn’t that long ago that I had a birthday, and I happen to like fast cars, somebody here might like fast cars, I don’t know… So my wife bought me a fast car, but the fast car was in Oklahoma City, so me and JT back there on the bass got dropped off in Oklahoma City and we drove like a bat out of hell through the Ozark Mountains all the way to Nashville, Tennessee, and that’s what this song is all about.”

And after a quick look through the tracklist, we’ll also find the longtime fan favorite “You Should Probably Leave,” the gut-wrenching “Maggie’s Song,” and three covers: two Guy Clark songs and one by John Fogerty.
