Eli Young Band is back with a brand new single, “Love Talking.” 

Out now, the track was written by lead singer Mike Eli with Jeffrey East and Eric Arjes, and finds the GRAMMY-nominated group crooning over the beginning of a relationship. 

“When I said you’re the only one/ I’m ever gonna need, ever gonna want/ Don’t know what came over me, that was just the love/ When I let it slip that I/ Wanted you for my whole life/ And you and me turned into us, that was just the love talking,” they sing on the chorus.

In an interview with Taste of Country, Eli explained how the song came about and shared why he’s so fired up about it. 

“We’ve always been suckers for a tune that you’re expecting something, and you get something way different,” he shared. 

“I think I’d probably expect a mid-tempo love song that was saying something completely different,” the singer added. “But I think the feel, the energy, everything about this tune is different. It’s different for us, and I think it’s different for radio. I think it’s gonna add so much to the show.”
