Eli Young Band Announce New Single “Saltwater Gospel”

Eli Young Band

Eli Young Band gave their fans some much-anticipated news this week, announcing their latest single “Saltwater Gospel” across social media. Marking the band’s first single for The Valory Music Co., the song will ship to radio next week and will be available on iTunes next Friday, June 10. “Saltwater Gospel” marks the band’s first single for The Valory Music Co. and is a follow up to EYB’s three chart-topping hits “Crazy Girl,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” and “Drunk Last Night.”

The anthemic hook in “Saltwater Gospel” immediately transports the listener to their favorite beach, where the mystical power of the ocean melts away the troubles of everyday life – while connecting them to their own spirituality.  In less than four minutes, the track has the transformative ability to mirror the uplifting effect of the ocean, the sand and the breeze.  Like the rhythm of the waves, verse-by-verse, the song lifts the listener higher and higher, with its steady pulse and soulful cadence.

“I’m out here by myself, but I know I’m not alone

Yeah I got all the proof I need

and it sure makes me believe

 When I go down and sink my feet in the water

 and I soak up that sun and I watch it set. 

Yeah, I can feel the power of the saltwater gospel

 I’m as close to God as I can get.

Ooooooo, Oooooo, Yeah….”

EYB lead singer Mike Eli noted,

“sometimes you just have that gut feeling  you’ve come across something special. When I heard this song, it moved me. I love that it is about so much more than just saltwater.”

EYB’s producer Ross Copperman and hit-makers Nicolle Galyon and Ashley Gorley penned “Saltwater Gospel,” infusing all of the hallmarks of a smash. The lead single will be featured on their forthcoming – and first – album for The Valory Music Co., which the band is currently in the studio recording.  EYB will debut their new music at select tour dates this summer.

Big Machine Label Group President & CEO Scott Borchetta exclaims,

“The Eli Young Band are back with perhaps the most infectious new song of the summer. Don’t overthink it, just let Saltwater Gospel play and let it wash over you. You will then know that summer has truly arrived.”
