Newcomer Kane Brown made his national TV debut on Thursday (December 1) on Ellen, performing his rumbling new song, “Thunder in the Rain.”
The electrifying track, which is the current single from Brown’s full-length debut album, was co-written by the young singer with Josh Hoge and Matthew McVaney about a couple whose love feels like a force of nature.
“You’re fire, I’m lightning / We’re burning at the core / Falling and crashing / Girl we’re a perfect storm / Every time our hearts collide / I can feel our love come alive / It’s the same, baby / We’re like thunder in the rain,” goes the chorus, stretching Brown’s booming baritone upward.
Dressed for casual cool in a ball cap and low-riding pair of skinny, camouflage jeans, Brown made the most of his first time on the national stage, even venturing out into the crowd to get close to some potential new fans. Judging by the crowd’s reaction when host Ellen DeGeneres told them they were all getting a copy of his new album, he made a quite a few.
Brown’s self-titled debut, featuring “Thunder in the Rain,” comes out December 2nd.
