Corey Kent has been hinting at new music a lot lately, frequently teasing unreleased songs across all of his social media accounts. He even admitted (for the most part) that a new record might be on the way, tweeting “Feels like a good year for an album…” just last week.
Back in March, the “Wild As Her” singer also shared his plans to drop a “heartbreak song” on 4/14. He posted videos of two unreleased songs, and asked for fans’ feedback as he contemplated which one to choose. The original contenders were titled “Gone As You” and “Long Story Short,” but Kent seemed to ditch the heartbreak-song-plan all together when he introduced a third track, “Something’s Gonna Kill Me.”
He took to social media today to announce that the upcoming release would officially be “Something’s Gonna Kill Me,” and followed the news by saying this is “probably the most excited” he’s ever been about a new song. I’d be stoked for a new Corey Kent release even if he went the heartbreak route, but after listening to the demo of “Something’s Gonna Kill Me,” it’s obvious this is about to be an absolute banger, and he clearly made the right selection.
Pre-save the track now, and listen to it below before it drops next Friday:
