Eli Young Band is ready to “Turn It Up” with a fresh new sound on their brand new single impacting radio today! The infectious “Turn It On,” has an up-tempo, monster hook that instantly grabs you and sinks into your head after just one listen. The band debuted the song for country radio at this year’s Country Radio Seminars (CRS) in Nashville last month.
The band explained to CMTT the decision to release “Turn It On” as the bands next single was left up to their label but the band was happy with the choice,
“When it comes to singles we always have our opinions, but we aren’t the kind of band to put songs on our records that we don’t love.” Mike explained. “We don’t want to turn into that band where we have to play a show full of songs that we really don’t love, but when it comes down to the singles, we kind of leave that up to the people who probably know better than us.”
The Turn it Up EP will be available for fans tomorrow, March 10. With a trio of platinum and multi-platinum #1 hits like “Drunk Last Night,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” and “Crazy Girl” under their belts, EYB went into the studio to record four songs, co-written by members of the band, with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover. Thrilled with the evolution of the band’s sound, their label Republic Nashville is releasing the complete collection immediately, fast tracking the single and EP.
Turn it Up EP is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed album 10,000 TOWNS. The album made its debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and earned EYB multiple Grammy, CMA, ACM, CMT, ACA and Billboard award nominations.
With Turn it Up EP, EYB continues to evolve in a fresh and exciting ways. The new music highlights clever lyrics and beat-laden grooves from the band of brothers.
