NASHVILLE, TN. / LONDON, U.K. – (Sept. 22, 2023) – With three previous #1 singles, Parmalee‘s ‘Girl In Mine’ is a Top 5-and-rising country radio hit, and the group’s new album For You 2 is out today.
In addition to ‘Girl In Mine’, the album is already home to two #1 country hits, including the double-platinum ‘Just The Way’, featuring Blanco Brown, and the platinum-certified ‘Take My Name’, which is Billboard’s Most Played Country Song of 2022.
For You 2 – the deluxe version of the group’s For You – is Parmalee’s first new album in two years. Stream/download For You 2 here.
In addition to ‘Make You Mine’, the 18-song collection boasts four new tracks: ‘Gonna Love You’ (Matt Thomas, David Fanning, Abram Dean, Andy Sheridan), ‘Is It Just Me’ – (Matt Thomas, David Fanning, Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson), ‘Boyfriend’ (Matt Thomas, David Fanning, Ashley Gorley, Ben Johnson, Michael Hardy, Hunter Phelps) and ‘Wish You Never Loved Me’ (Matt Thomas, David Fanning, Ashley Gorley, Andy Sheridan).
“In those two years between the original and the deluxe, we kept writing songs,” says lead singer Matt Thomas. “The good thing about this time in-between is that you can dig in and keep beating what you have. There was a progression.”
Matt co-wrote 17 of the 18 songs on For You 2 and says the new additions were thoughtfully chosen and among his favorite songs he’s had a hand in co-writing. “We just wanted to bring new stories, fresh sounds and a new perspective into For You 2, Parmalee is anxious to share the new songs and hear what fans think of the music.
“We want to have different songs to complete For You 2, that still fit the whole vibe,” Matt says. “I felt like we picked the four best for this total record.”
Parmalee’s For You 2 is out now, with the YouTube video premiere of ‘Gonna Love You’ at 5pm CT / 11pm BST that will include a live YouTube Afterparty immediately following for premium users. Watch the premiere HERE and join the Afterparty HERE.
