Morgan Wallen is teasing new music again.

Just recently, he posted part of a clip of an untitled old demo on Instagram, and a video of a song he co-wrote with Miranda Lambert called “Thought You Should Know”

This time, he put up a clip of a track he’s apparently been working on with his friend and frequent co-writer Ernest, called “Drink U Back.”

It sounds like a good old fashioned sad, lonesome drinking song, where Morgan finds himself trying to use alcohol as a means of numbing the pain of a break-up.

As it turns out, rather than drinking his ex away, he uses a clever play on words to describe the fact that he finds he can’t let her go and winds up trying to “drink her back” instead:

“Why’d the hell I race to forget you
Got me rememberin’ 
Where’d you go now baby
No you can’t be that far
‘Cuz I’ll that I’ve been feelin’ lately
Is you creepin’ back on my heart

Thought I’d put enough miles down
To get you gone by now
But now I hear you saying
Not so fast
Though I’d finally drank you gone
So why am I trying to drink you back”

He polled his followers in the caption on the video, asking them if the pair should finish writing it:

“Drink U Back. Should me and Ernest finish this? Also happy 4th of July GAHT.”

Of course, in the comments section, it was a resounding “yes.”

Morgan has one of the most rabid fan bases in all of country music, and they’ve been itching to see him get back to making music after his hiatus that started earlier this year.

While Morgan is known to tease new music on his social platforms as a way to test out new material for a record, it remains to be seen if he’ll actually be putting out any new music in 2021. Dangerous technically came out this year so it’s probably a longshot.

However, he’s recently been in the studio with his other frequent co-writer Hardy, so it doesn’t seem impossible to think that could happen in some capacity.

Oh, and he’s been spending a lot of time golfing and hanging out with his musical hero Eric Church, recently posting a beautiful acoustic version of them singing “Sand In My Boots” with Hardy:
