Sam Hunt teased the lead single from his as-yet-untitled second album, sharing a brief snippet of “Body Like a Back Road” on his Instagram ahead of its official release. Listen to the clip above. Hunt also unveiled plans for his headlining 15 in a 30 Tour, which gets underway June 1st.

“Body Like a Back Road,” which heads to radio Wednesday, February 1st, is a soulful, mid-tempo love ballad with a hint of lighthearted humor. A line from the song about taking one’s time in a fast-paced world inspired the name of Hunt’s new tour: “Doing 15 in a 30, I ain’t in no hurry / [I’ll] take it slow just as fast as I can,” he sings at one point. It comes on the heels of the New Year’s Eve release of ‘Drinkin’ Too Much,’ which documents fame’s influence on his relationship with now-fiancée, Hannah Lee Fowler.

Since the arrival of his debut album Montevallo in 2014, Hunt has quickly climbed from opener to headliner, with his headlining 2015 Lipstick Graffiti Tour completely selling out. The 15 in a 30 Tour kicks off June 1st at Blossom Music Center in the Cleveland, Ohio area’s Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Featuring guests Maren Morris, Chris Janson and Ryan Follese, the trek includes notable stops like the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and wraps up in Hunt’s adopted hometown of Nashville at the Ascend Amphitheater. Tickets for select dates go on sale February 10th.
