William Michael Morgan released his debut album Vinyl almost exactly a year ago. Now, he’s about to release the album’s namesake single to country radio.

“Vinyl” is the second track on Morgan’s first record, a down-the-middle mid-tempo semi-ballad. In it, he uses vinyl records as a metaphor for romance between himself and a girl.

As you can imagine, the single gets dangerously close to cheesy with the references. “A little rock, a little Motown,” Morgan sings. “You got that baby pull me close sound. You make the whole room go ’round and ’round like vinyl.”

But the sentiment behind the song rings true. And with Morgan’s classic country vocal delivery, you can bet a few hearts will melt when the song hits radio on Oct. 2. Listen to the tune below.

Carson Chamberlain, Ashley Gorley and Wade Kirby wrote the tune. As far as comparing love to vinyl records, well, they’re not alone. It’s been a popular choice ever since the analog sound returned to living rooms and young people started buying records again. Still, this is a solid take, essentially fusing tried and true musical themes with Morgan’s throwback style.

Will it be a winner on radio? It certainly could. Morgan’s debut single “I Met A Girl” went to No. 1. Then the clever song “Missing” peaked at No. 29. The album Vinyl itself debuted in the top 5 of country albums.

William Michael Morgan’s “Vinyl” Lyrics

If our love was a song girl
I’d play it all night long girl
I tell you what I’d put it on girl
I’d put it on vinyl
A little rock, a little Motown
You got that baby pull me close sound
You make the whole room go round and round like vinyl

What we got is a little old fashioned
Baby you’re an instant classic
They don’t make ’em no more like you
So let the needle drop and play it all night
Might have a little static but it’s all right
Ain’t nothin gonna stop this groove

You know you got the real thing
The whole world outta know your name
Like a band in the hall of fame
On vinyl
I wanna let your hair fall girl
Oh you’re beautiful you got it all girl
I’d hang the cover on the wall girl
Just like vinyl

What we got is a little old fashioned
Baby you’re an instant classic
They don’t make ’em no more like you
So let the needle drop and play it all night
Might have a little static but it’s all right
Ain’t nothin gonna stop this groove no

Let the needle drop and play it all night
Might have a little static but it’s all right
Ain’t nothin gonna stop our groove no

If our love was a song girl
I’d play it all night long girl
I tell you what I’d put it on girl
I’d put it on vinyl

When you say my name it’s the sweetest sound
Aw girl you got me spinnin round and round like vinyl
Like vinyl
Ain’t nothin gonna stop this groove
No they don’t make ’em no more like you
Like vinyl
