Luke Bryan is preparing to share another song from his much-anticipated new album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, with the upcoming release of “Build Me A Daddy.”

The superstar offered fans a sneak preview of the song on Twitter Wednesday morning (June 10) with a 14-second teaser.

Although it’s only a small sample of the track, one thing is clear: this one sounds like a tear-jerker.

“I’ve played this song for a lot of my hardcore buddies and it chokes them up. I think that’s the beauty of country music, to really make you feel emotional,” he wrote alongside the clip. “I can’t wait to share my new song, ‘Build Me A Daddy,’ with you guys this Friday.”

“Build Me A Daddy” was written by Jake Mitchell, Josh Thompson, Brett Tyler and is the 6th track on Bryan’s forthcoming album, which will serve as the follow up to Bryan’s 2017 release, What Makes You Country. “Build Me A Daddy” will be available everywhere on Friday (June 12).

“I’m proud of this new music and I’m really excited to get it out,” Bryan previously shared of his new project.

Originally scheduled to release on April 24, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here will now be available on August 7.
