Easton Corbin recently joined Dan on Zoom to chat about his brand new single, ‘Turn Up’, his forthcoming new music, how he’s been finding life over the last few months, and more!
On the up-beat new single, which he co-wrote with Jessi Alexander and Wade Kirby, Easton said, “It was funny – at first, I was writing with Wade and he had brought a title to a write after watching the NBA finals, and one of the players at the end was like “I just wanna turn up”. He brought that title, and at first I wasn’t crazy about it, so we didn’t write that title that day. But we got back together, with Jessi Alexander, and he brought it back up again. I said “let’s chase it and see what happens”, because sometimes you just don’t know how things work out. I’m glad we did, because it turned out to be one of my favourite songs”
It’s the start of a new chapter for Easton, who says he’s going back to his roots with his forthcoming new music. “You have your whole life to write for your first record, and after that you don’t. This past year and a half, I’ve had the chance to take my time and write stuff that I love, going through and cull the stuff I don’t love as much.”
Easton also talked about how cool it’s been to connect with the fans in new ways during this pandemic, and also gave his thoughts on playing shows in the UK at some point.
