The first fruit of Jessica Simpson’s upcoming country album has hit the airwaves. “Come on Over” was serviced digitally yesterday (May 27) to country radio and was spun 21 times on Broadcast Data Systems-monitored stations.
Against acoustic guitar strums and a driving rhythm, the track finds Simpson pleading with a love interest to drop everything and pay her a visit. “Leave your coat behind the door / leave your laundry on the floor / just come on over,” she sings.
Simpson’s as-yet-untitled album is expected in early fall via Columbia Nashville, according to her spokesperson.
“I am a country girl,” she told Billboard late last year in her first interview about the project. “I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to. I always wanted to make a country album, but I wanted to wait until the time was right.”
“I think there is a strength in female country artists,” she added, citing Martina McBride, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Reba McEntire as some of her inspirations.
