Kenny Chesney is gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated upcoming studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, set for release on October 28. As the excitement continues to build, Chesney is ready to set country radio on fire with the announcement of his new single, “Setting The World On Fire,” a duet with Grammy Award winning artist P!NK. The new single will officially impact country radio on July 28 at 5PM ET.
“With the Spread the Love Tour in full force, I wanted a song that packs all that joy, all that fun, all the energy that love is made of” Chesney shares. “When I heard ‘Setting The World On Fire,’ I knew it was exactly the song I’d been looking for. Like ‘Somewhere With You,’ there’s an urgency, but this one is ‘in’ the moment – and what a moment it is!”
“Setting The World On Fire,” written by Ross Copperman, Matt Jenkins and Josh Osborne, will serve as the second release from Cosmic Hallelujah, following up lead single “Noise.” The inclusion of P!NK on the new track will no doubt be immediately embraced, just as his past collaborations from other genres.
“To me, great songs are great songs regardless of genre – and the core of being alive is the same no matter where you are,” Kenny says. “That rush of realizing there’s something going on here… You’re really clicking with someone… Or even just one of those perfect nights with your friends, there’s no feeling like it. And I like the idea of P!NK with her voice that is so strong and contains so many colors, she really makes that idea of giving into your heart, shouting out the window and whirling around in the middle of an abandoned street feel real.”
