Charley Crockett will be back soon with new album Music City USA that's out September 17 via Son of Davy/Thirty Tigers. He's just shared new single "I Need Your Love," a sweet and sultry slice of southern soul.

“I like to think of my sound as ‘Gulf & Western’, and this number here is all gulf coast music,” says Crockett. “Something you’d hear out of southeast Texas recording studios or southern Louisiana. I’d been foolin’ around with this song for a while, and when we went to record it, we decided at the last minute to double the length of the chorus. I felt right then that we had something. I’d wanted to bring the horns back for a couple tunes on this album. Soul and Country R&B from the deep south is a whole lot of who I am. I hope it shows though on ‘I Need Your Love’”.

You can watch the video for "I Need Your Love," which Charley co-directed with Bobby Cochran, below.

Charley is on tour as we speak and dates will continue through the summer and into fall, including a show at Red Rocks with Orville Peck, the Hinterland Festival, a taping of Austin City Limits and an appearance at the ACL fest, as well as shows in Nashville, Louisville, Detroit, Atlanta, Boston, Brooklyn, Richmond, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and more. All dates are listed below

The Brooklyn show is at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 17 and tickets are on sale.
