Multi-platinum selling Country duo Thompson Square is back with a ‘racy,’ head-turning new single “Trans Am” and Rolling Stone Country is giving fans the exclusive first listen on its home page today.

After spending the last few months in the studio with legendary producer/musician Dann Huff (Faith Hill/ Rascal Flatts), the award-winning Stoney Creek Records duo has emerged with a crisp, new sound chock full of fire, attitude and sexy, arena rock-driven beats.

With lyrics like:
“I wanna hug those curves/
And show you what this motor’s made of/
Grinding the gears, 8-track blastin’/
I wanna hear you screamin’ faster. . .

“Trans AM” showcases a grittier, fun-loving side of the married duo. The song captures the brazen passion and energy of Thompson Square’s live shows, something fans have long since celebrated.

“This new music is a very tempo-driven project that probably represents us more than both of its predecessors,” says Keifer Thompson. “’Trans Am’ is a state of mind. It’s about liberation and not being painted into a corner. These new recordings show a more aggressive side of Thompson Square and reflects what fans experience at our live shows. It’s a lot of fun for us.”

“Trans Am” was co-written by Keifer and Shawna Thompson alongside Blair Daly (“Smile” Uncle Kracker) and the world-renown Nathan Chapman, famous for producing Taylor Swift’s first three albums.

Fans can purchase “Trans Am” at digital retailers now here.

The duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson are a force to be reckoned with in the modern day Country music landscape. International Country music stars, Thompson Square has topped the radio charts across the Unites States, Canada and Australia with #1 hits “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About,” respectively.

After taking its headlining “Just Feels Good Tour” across the U.S., Asia and Australia in 2014, the multi-platinum selling stars took time off to collaborate in the studio with both Dann Huff and celebrated producer Mickey Jack Cones (Dustin Lynch/ Joe Nichols) to work on the Stoney Creek Records duo’s upcoming third album.

The result is a barefaced, emotionally charged and gutsy sound from the married duo that was honored as both the ACM and CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” in 2012. Thompson Square continued its streak in 2013, once again securing the ACM Award for “Vocal Duo of the Year.” In all, Thompson Square has scored three #1 hits, six Top 20 hits, seven mainstream industry awards, over 25 award nominations and appeared on major media franchises from The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, CBS This Morning and Fox & Friends All American Summer Concert Series to Elle, Glamour, People, Rolling Stone, USA Today, USA Weekend and many more.

Thompson Square’s “Trans Am” officially impacts Country radio on Monday, April 13th. The duo’s third album is due later this year.   For more information visit: http://www.thompsonsquare.com.
