The Cadillac Three released their brand-new, country rockin’ single “Heat” in preparation for their new album Country Fuzz dropping this Friday, February 7th. This track follows a number of previously released samples such as “Hard Out Here For A Country Boy” and “Dirt Road Nights;” both features on the upcoming album. “Heat” is the last hoorah before the big anticipated release.
“Heat” is a vocoder stained, sensual song layered over intricate, yet powerful guitar fretwork combined with a simple drum beat that makes you wish you were also in the heat of the moment. Jaren Johnston, lead vocalist, tastefully documents that nothing is close to the heat that this girl brings. He sings: “Heat I ain’t ever felt // I finally got into hell // Her kiss keeps burnin’ me up // Keep bringin’ the heat // Girl, bring on the pain // That smoke, that whiskey rain // It’s too hard for me not to touch // Keep bringin’ the heat”
“We wrote ‘Heat’ in the back of the bus with Jimmy Robbins, Neal Mason, and Kelby, but that track was more of a Jimmy vibe so I had to take that and put it into a place that made sense for us but still was what Jimmy did,” Johnston spoke in an IGTV video, “A good sexy love song? C’mon, you win there.”
Kelby adds, potentially the best story of them all, “Heat is definitely one of my favorite songs. The funny thing is, we were coming up with ideas of which direction to take the song and I literally went inside to use the bathroom and I came out and they basically already finished the song. That’s the honest truth about how it was written.”
We love honesty.
