With their current single “Girl In Mine” nearing Top 5 on the Country Radio Singles chart, Parmalee is prepping for the release of their extended album For You 2. Slated to release Friday, September 22, fans can pre-save/pre-add the album here.
In anticipation of the album release, the kindred band is releasing “Boyfriend,” a new song from the album on Friday, September 1. Written by lead singer Matt Thomas, producer David Fanning, along with hitmakers Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, Michael Hardy and Hunter Phelps, “Boyfriend,” is a catchy, contemporary promise to treat his crush right.
Of the song, Matt said, “You’re in love with a girl who’s getting treated badly and all you can think is if she was yours, you would treat her right and put a ring on her finger. The melody and production has a bit of a Country-Punk vibe, and I think it’s going to add some fun energy and attitude to our set.”
In addition to “Boyfriend” and “Girl In Mine,” For You 2 will include 3 more new songs. The album has already yielded two No. 1 country singles including the double-platinum “Just The Way,” featuring Blanco Brown, and the platinum-certified “Take My Name,” which was Billboard’s Most Played Country Song of 2022.
Last week the People’s Choice Country Award nominees kicked-off their month-long tour with Grammy Award winning band Train. “We’re thrilled about the tour with Train, and we’ve been fans of them and their music for a long time,” said Matt. “They share a band mentality, just like we do, and I feel like we’re cut from the same cloth in a lot of ways. We’re excited to play our music for their fans.”
