It’s official: Chris Stapleton has a new single on the way and it’s arriving this week.

Dubbed “Starting Over,” the highly anticipated new song is the lead release from the Grammy-winning artist’s long-awaited new album, which is expected to drop this fall.

Stapleton shared a snippet of “Starting Over” across his social media channels on Tuesday (Aug. 25) and confirmed that the single will be released on Thursday, August 27 at 12 pm EST.

The Kentucky native previously performed the song during his 2019 tour. Fans can watch his acoustic performance of “Starting Over” HERE.

The single announcement comes just hours after Stapleton teased what many believe is a new album on social media. Monday evening, he shared a 37-second video that features shots of himself, his wife, Morgane, and his band intermixed with ambiguous video clips that seem to have an underlying theme of nature, including fire, horses, butterflies, frogs, birds.

The video closes with the date 11.13.20, possibly signifying the date of his new album release.

Chris Stapleton’s latest project, From A Room: Volume 2, was released on December 1, 2017. That record, which was nominated for Best Country Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, spawned the hit “Millionaire” and also earned the celebrated artist a nomination for CMA Album of the Year.

Since then, Stapleton has remained relatively quiet on the music front, however, continued to tour to sold-out crowds. This year, the Kentucky native was slated to continue his All-American Road Show, but was forced to postpone the headlining run until 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
