JT Hodges, ‘Drink You Down’ [Exclusive Premiere]
JT Hodges has a new EP, After Midnight, due out on Friday (Sept. 30), and he's sharing one of its tracks exclusively with The Boot's readers. "Drink You Down" is a slow and smooth song that will make the romantics swoon.
"Drink You Down" finds Hodges singing about being "intoxicated" by a woman: "I wanna drink you down / I wanna get lit up / Forget about this crowd / It's just the two of us," Hodges sings in the chorus. "Here on a night like this / Lost in a champagne kiss / Spinning 'round and 'round / I wanna drink you down."
Readers can press play below to hear "Drink You Down," which perfectly encapsulates Hodges' pop-country style and features an infectious melody and a smooth vocal performance.
On Friday (Sept. 23), Hodges teased After Midnight's release on Twitter and surprised fans with the ability to pre-order the EP a week before its release date. The project is Hodges' second extended play, following 2015's Locks on Doors. The singer released his self-titled debut album in 2013 and is known for songs such as "Hunt You Down" and "Ray Bans."
In addition to "Drink You Down," After Midnight will include two other tracks. The EP is available for pre-order on iTunes.
