After a hiatus from the music industry, Sam Hunt is back with a brand new song, “Kinfolks”, which made it’s world premiere today (October 10th). The award-winning singer-songwriter co-wrote the new track with Zach Crowell, Jerry Flowers, and Josh Osborne and it will officially impact country radio on Monday, October 14th.
Hunt has been teasing the new music all week on social media, and sonically, “Kinfolks” channels the signature R&B infused country that he has perfected over the years with smash hits like “Body Like A Backroad”, “Ex To See” and “Leave The Night On”. The story unfolds of wanting to bring a new relationship home, maybe for the first time, and introduce them to everyone you love who has been there from the start.
“When I think of ‘kinfolks,’ when I think of that phrase,” says Hunt in a press release, “I think of my family, but also I think of my people back home – beyond family. It’s my buddies who’ve been a part of my story from the beginning. I’ve made a lot of new friends and met a lot of new people who are important to me since I’ve moved away, but that core group is still my core group. It’s like that old saying, ‘you can’t make old friends.’”
Hunt is currently in the studio finishing up his latest project which can be expected in the new year. “Kinfolks” follows a teaser of music that the multi-platinum selling premiered “Sinning With You” during his Bud Light House Party Tour in Calgary on September 19th.
