Luke Bryan is back with a brand new single that edges the country superstar closer to pop than ever.

Following the sound featured on his hit 2015 record Kill The Lights, “Light It Up” goes heavy on the percussion and electric guitar. Much like the latest cut from Thomas Rhett, the tune is built on the production-heavy elements from stadium rock anthems.

Lyrically, it stays in the wheelhouse of Bryan’s other modern love songs. “Light It Up” isn’t about pulling out your lighter, but about incessantly checking your cell phone to see if you’re old flame has changed their mind.

Listen to “Light It Up” below:


“Light It Up” will be likely be featured on Bryan’s upcoming 6th studio album. Although no details about the record have been released yet, fans are sure to hear more from the country star before the end of 2017.

Bryan is currently out on his massive 2017 Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour. You can find a full list of his upcoming tour dates here.

Luke Bryan’s “Light It Up” Lyrics:

I open my eyes, reach for the phone
Not a word from you baby
It don’t leave my sight since we had that fight
Can’t remember but maybe
I blew you up in the middle of the night again
You were drinking with your friends
You ignored it but you got it

I get so neurotic about it baby
‘Cause I know you’re reading your phone
I can’t help from going crazy
Thinking you might not be all alone
I wake up, I check it
I shower and I check it
I feel the buzz in my truck and I almost wreck it
I always got it on me
Just in case you want me
So, if you’re looking for my love
Then light it up.

Every time I unlock my screen
I hope I see one of them red lipstick “I miss you” pictures
I’m on your clock, you’re in control
You want me now baby, g
o figure
My world’s at the tips of your fingers

I go to sleep, I check it
In the middle of the night, I check it
I feel the buzz in my bed
And I don’t get no rest
I always got it on me
Just in case you want me
So, if you’re looking for my love
Then light it up
