After teasing the song on social media and previewing it throughout the day on country radio stations, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill just shared “Speak to a Girl,” the first single off their currently untitled forthcoming duets album.
The sweeping ballad offers sage advice to suitors hoping to woo a woman, with Hill’s opening verse plainly stating, “She don’t give a damn about your Benjamin Franklins / She wants Aretha.” Shy Carter, Dave Gibson and Joe Spargur wrote the track, which finds the couple trading verses and sharing harmonies over a cinematic arrangement reminiscent of an Eighties power ballad.
“Speak to a Girl” is now available on streaming and digital download services. No release date for the pair’s duet album is available yet. McGraw and Hill will perform the song live during the ACM Awards telecast on April 2nd.
The couple embarks on the latest incarnation of their Soul2Soul Tour on April 7th in New Orleans, Louisiana.
