Luke Bryan Kill The Lights track debuts on Tinder

Tinder continues to flirt with the music-industry this mont with the debut release of Luke Bryan’s track “Kill The Lights,” from his highly anticipated fifth studio album KILL THE LIGHTS.

Starting today through Monday, August 3, Tinder users nationwide will discover a video message from Luke inviting them to be the first to experience his new track. Simply tap the banners on either the top or bottom of the card to receive an exclusive link. Fans will also have the opportunity to pre-order Luke’s latest album, KILL THE LIGHTS, out August 7. Tinder users should have the latest version of the app installed to catch the video.

“Tinder is the hottest social platform for meeting new people,” shared Luke. “That’s why I thought my title track for KILL THE LIGHTS would be perfect to premiere exclusively on the app before it comes out next Friday, August 7th. I’m happily married and not on Tinder but I hope my fans on Tinder enjoy the song – and if they’re not on Tinder, now’s the chance.”

Luke’s “Kill The Lights” track will also become available on iTunes on Tuesday, Aug. 4 when pre-ordering the album.

Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 12 singles at No. 1 and sold 7.5 million albums with 30 million digital tracks from his four studio albums. He has been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music (twice) and the Country Music Association.

In 2014, Luke achieved the best touring year of his career with 1.7 million fans attending his concerts. In early 2015, Luke played his first-ever shows in Europe and on May 22 the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum launched a new exhibit, “Luke Bryan: Dirt Road Diary.” The exhibit runs through November 8, 2015. Luke’s new concert tour, “Kick The Dust Up Tour,” which is also the title of the first single from KILL THE LIGHTS, will continue through October and includes seven stadium dates.

This comes just a few weeks after Tinder was the mysterious center-piece of Hillary Duff’s latest music-video. As the social-network grows more popular, we may see more artist debuting their tracks on the app.
