Tyler Childers has released “House Fire,” the lead single from his forthcoming album, Country Squire.
The banjo-heavy country folk song was released alongside a fiery video. In the clip, a couple dance to Childers’ gravelly vocals while a bonfire burns in the foreground. “You can set my house on fire, baby / You can turn it into cinder and smoke / ’Cause this house is mighty cold and I feel like / Melting all the snow away,” he sings.
“I hope that people in the area that I grew up in find something they can relate to,” Childers, a native of Lawrence County, Kentucky, said in a press release. “I hope that I’m doing my people justice and I hope that maybe someone from somewhere else can get a glimpse of the life of a Kentucky boy.”
Country Squire will be Childers’ major label debut on RCA Records, in collaboration with his own label, Hickman Hollar Records. The LP is due out August 2.
