New Sam Hunt music is coming in hot!
The "Body Like A Back Road" hit singer just revealed he is officially dropping a new single titled "Kinfolks" on Thursday, October 10 at 5 p.m. ET. Over the last few days, Hunt has been hinting at new music through a series of photos posted on social media paired with captions that seemed to be lyrics.
On Wednesday morning (October 9) Hunt confirmed that new music is coming and even shared a snippet of the upcoming single with fans. "Kinfolks" is an upbeat track about wanting to take someone special home to meet your family.
"I want to introduce you to my kinfolks / To my old friends / To the house in the pines where the road ends / Take you to my hometown / Where I grew up / Where I thought I knew it all before I knew what love was / Gave up on it but honey, you got my hopes up / And I'm thinking that I want to introduce you to my kinfolks," Hunt sings in the chorus.
"Kinfolks" was written by Hunt alongside longtime collaborators Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers and Josh Osborne. The new single will impact country radio on October 14.
"When I think of 'kinfolks,' I think of that phrase, I think of my family, but also I think of my people back home- beyond family," Hunt says in a press release. "It's my buddies who've been a part of my story from the beginning. I've made a lot of new friends and met a lot of new people who are important to me since I've moved away, but that core group is still my core group. It's like that old saying, 'you can't make old friends.'"
The release of "Kinfolks" marks Hunt's first new music since 2018's "Downtown's Dead," which followed up his hit single from 2017, "Body Like A Back Road." About a month ago, Hunt debuted a new song titled "Sinning With You" at a show in Calgary, Alberta.
