Brantley Gilbert just released the music video for his latest single, “Fire’t Up.”

The hell-raising clip showcases Gilbert’s bad-boy persona and includes motorcycles, dancers and a lot of fire.

Gilbert premiered the video on YouTube on Thursday and took the time to chat with fans about the clip before and during the premiere.

Check out the just-released “Fire’t Up” music video above.

The song, written by Gilbert alongside Brandon Day and Justin Weaver is the follow-up to “What Happens in a Small Town,” Gilbert’s chart-topping duet with Lindsay Ell.

In a recent interview with his record label, the Georgia native opened up about writing the song, admitting that they approached this one a bit differently than other songs on his latest album, Fire & Brimstone.

“As a writer and a player, after a while you have to be careful. You do a lot of familiar things on guitar and a lot of times, your melody lines can get almost repetitive or your licks can get almost repetitive,” he explained. “So, we did a lot of track writin’ on this record and this was a track that Brandon Day brought to the table, and it was kind of rockin’, but it had like a vibe that we’d never done but still had a little hell-raiser in there and we kind of just wrote to the mood.  And, yeah, it’s a three-minute party.”

Featuring 15 tracks, all written or co-written by Gilbert, Fire & Brimstone is available to stream or download now.
