Uncle Kracker released “Cruising Altitude” out now.

“I’m stoked to release this feel-good song of the fall,” says Uncle Kracker. “I sat down with the Warren brothers and JT Harding one morning to write. We were chatting about strip clubs. From there, the conversation turned into about where we were from and the Warren brothers’ father, who was a pilot — one thing led to another… ‘Cruising Altitude.’ You’re welcome!”

X Ambassadors unveil a new single, “Alcohol” in collaboration with platinum-selling Country singer/songwriter/producer BRELAND.

Of the collaboration, Sam shares, “I wanted to write something that got right to the heart (and humor) of what it feels like when you’re being extra extra dramatic and desperately need to find a way to drown your sorrows. When I brought the rough concept to BRELAND and Dan, they helped bring it to life. BRELAND is a true wunderkind, so quick and clever and has got a voice like butter; we finished the chorus and wrote verses in under 2 hrs. Dan is one of the kindest, most creatively intuitive human beings I have ever met. This song was so much fun to write with the two of them, and I couldn’t be more excited for it to be out in the world as the final episode of this season of (Eg).”
