Thomas Rhett just shared some big news on Twitter. It looks like the singer’s brand new song “Craving You” features a very special guest in Maren Morris. And not only that — it drops next week, on March 31.
Rhett shared a tweet with the news, featuring what looks like some cover artwork for the single. “Craving You” represents the first new tune from Rhett’s follow-up album to 2015’s Tangled Up.
Morris is in high demand after her insanely successful 2016. This new feature marks the second time she appears on a major male act’s record. She recently shared vocal duties with Dierks Bentley on his song “I’ll Be The Moon” from 2016’s Black.
But that song never got the single treatment, and it looks like Rhett’s new tune might. At least his first tune off albums usually goes that way.
Rhett has a great history of taking songs to the top of the chart, too. He scored three No. 1 songs on his 2013 debut album It Goes Like This, while his sophomore effort landed an impressive four No. 1 tunes. That includes his most recent, “Star of the Show.” That song technically came from the deluxe edition of Tangled Up, but hey, it still counts.
Meanwhile, Morris just released her third single to radio. “I Could Use a Love Song” debuted at No. 56 on the chart last week and has a ways to go to match her first two. “My Church” peaked at No. 5, while “80s Mercedes” made it to No. 12.
Rhett says he started working on his third album back in Fall 2016. The record comes out some time in 2017 and apparently features some Grease style tunes. Rhett also announced he and wife Lauren are expecting a baby girl in 2017, in addition to a child they’re adopting.
In other words, this is going to be a very busy year for the Rhett family!
