After earlier this week announcing the release date for her new album The Way I’m Livin’, Lee Ann Womack today unveiled the album’s title track.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy, where she premiered the track, Womack said she wanted to perform the song the moment she heard it.

“It was so raw, and real, and, well, unrepentant,” she said. “Real roots music, whether it’s country or bluegrass, the blues, even rock, is about hitting a nerve. You can’t not react. It’s not an easy thing to do, but man, this song hit me the first time I heard it, and it hits me every time I sing it, hear it or even think about it.”

The song was written by Adam Wright, and it showcases Womack’s familiar vocals alongside haunting guitar and string features.

The Way I’m Livin’ is due out Sept. 23 on Womack’s new label, Sugar Hill Records/Welk Music. Womack explained that on this release it was important for her to showcase how everyday life is.
