Lee Brice is gearing up for the November 3 release of his upcoming self-titled studio album by dropping a new video for “Boy,” the first single from the aforementioned album.
“Boy,” which is available for purchase on iTunes today (May 19), was co-penned by Nicolle Galyon and Jon Nite.
“We wanted to make ‘Boy’ our first single for a couple of reasons,” says Lee. “First, Sara and I have two sons, Takoda (9) and Ryker (3). This song is a tribute to them. It’s my way of saying how proud I am to be their dad. The second reason is because, coincidentally, we have a daughter on the way in a couple of weeks and we wanted to share this song for our boys before she arrived.”
The new album will arrive more than three years after Lee’s 2014 studio album, I Don’t Dance, which spawned three Top 10 hits, including “I Don’t Dance” (No. 1), “Drinking Class” (No. 2) and “That Don’t Sound Like You” (No. 10).
“Writing this [new] record was a personal and vulnerable experience,” says Lee. “Every song is a snapshot of who I am right now. I’ve labored over every word and every note, and I can’t wait to share it.”
Watch the video for “Boy” below. The nostalgic tune celebrates the many “firsts” in a boy’s life, including first fight, first kiss, first heartbreak and more.
