Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are back in full force. Now the power duo is preparing to release a single together called “Speak To A Girl.” But the song is just the tip of the iceberg. McGraw and Hill also plan to release a full album later this year.
“Speak To A Girl” heads to country radio at 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 23. The tune goes live for download and streaming that very same day. Usually songs just kind of make there debut and climb the charts. But the first new music from the couple surely earns more of a celebration.
Shy Carter, Dave Gibson and Joe Sparger wrote the song. Longtime producer Byron Gallimore co-produced the track alongside McGraw and Hill. After the song’s release on March 23, the duo plan to perform it at the ACM Awards on April 2.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill both signed record deals with Arista Nashville last month. McGraw previously leaved at Big Machine Records (and Curb before that), while Hill had a deal with Warner Bros. While their deals are technically separate, and include solo albums, the album together seems like a natural progression.
The couple launches their massive Soul2Soul World Tour on April 7 in New Orleans. That tour extends all the way to the end of October. No word on the release date or title for the new album yet, but it’s safe to bet on a release date this year.
McGraw and Hill previously released a new duet called “Keep Your Eyes On Me” for a recent film called The Shack. That dramatic tune featured a full string section and a soaring bridge. That song marked the first time the husband and wife team actually co-wrote together.
Will the music follow McGraw’s more poppy radio side from a few years ago, or his recent acoustic trend on Damn Country Music? And as for Hill, who knows what’s in store. She hasn’t released a new album of originals since 2005’s Fireflies (unless you want to count her 2008 Christmas album).
