Gwen Sebastian will release her next single "Cadillac" this Friday, Aug. 11. The country singer-songwriter announced the new music on Monday via a press release. You can sample the song by using the media player included with this article, and the single is currently available for pre-order on iTunes.
"Cadillac" is the first single from Sebastian's upcoming album Once Upon A Time in the West, which is scheduled to be available in November. Per the release, it was co-written by Sebastian, Miranda Lambert and April Lewis, and is a milestone for all three artists. In addition to being the first track from Sebastian's upcoming album, it's the first single that Lambert has written for another artist and the first single Lewis has co-written in her career.
It's also the first single Gwen Sebastian fans have been able to get since "That Could Be Us" and "Throw It Back", both of which were released two and a half years ago in February 2015. Once Upon A Time in the West will be Sebastian's first full record since her self-titled album hit playlists in 2013. While that's been a long wait, she's been keeping busy with live performances and lending her talents in support of other artists, most notably touring as a part of Lambert's band.
Since her appearance as a member of Team Blake during the second season of NBC's "The Voice", Sebastian has established herself as one of the most reliable and consistent collaborators in all of music, and Friday's single release will be a much deserved opportunity for her to step back into the spotlight. Each of Sebastian's singles have been well-written songs that exemplify the best of country music, and "Cadillac" is no exception. It's even more worth listening to since it's a taste of what audiences will be getting on her next album, and based on this single the album is worth looking forward to.
Gwen Sebastian does not currently have any live performances scheduled, but fans can keep up with announcements of future live shows here. Perhaps with the release of Once Upon A Time in the West will come a tour so that this underrated artist can take center stage again, because "Cadillac" proves she certainly deserves it.
"Cadillac" can be pre-ordered on iTunes.
