Soccer Mommy‘s debut album Clean, which was released earlier this year, is one of the best albums of the year so far. The 21-year-old Nashville star announces she’s dropping a new 7-inch single. The single’s A-Side is a newly reworked version of “Henry,” a song that originally appeared on Soccer Mommy’s 2016 collection For Young Hearts on Orchid Tapes. The B-Side is a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.”

“I wanted to make a version of ‘I’m On Fire’ that connected with the sadness of the song,” she explains. “I think that doing a more stripped-down version allowed me to make something that feels emotionally raw.”

The 7-inch is out Oct. 5 via Fat Possum. Stream the cover above.
