Kenny Chesney has just released a new single, "Tip of My Tongue," and the lyrics are all about connection.

The country superstar co-wrote the song with pop superstar Ed Sheeran, who helped him bring to life an idea that he'd had, but didn't know how to finish.

"It is an authentic story in my life and idea in my life, about connection," Chesney says. "Once we got into the idea of the song and started exploring, the song, in a lot of ways, wrote itself."

Ross Copperman also joined Chesney and Sheeran in writing the "Tip of My Tongue" lyrics, which are paired with a very progressive track that finds Chesney exploring more new musical ground. The song is set to appear on Chesney's upcoming 18th studio album, which will be his second under a new deal he struck with Warner Music Nashville in 2018 after departing Sony, his label home of more than 20 years.

Kenny Chesney's "Tip of My Tongue" Lyrics:

I love the dimples in the small of your back / The way they're speaking to me just like that / Red wine made my imagination run / Oh I can taste it on the tip of my tongue

Let it run, let it roll / Baby I am under your control / Love me fast, kiss me slow / Hang onto anything you can hold

Chorus:

It's a long way down to where I wanna go / It's a long way down to the center of your soul / It's a long way down and I'm a loaded gun / But I love your salt and sugar on the tip of my tongue

Girl, believe me when I say it's true / Nobody makes me feel the way you do / Well I love you from the morning till the setting sun, yeah / I can taste the ocean on the tip of my tongue

Let it run, let it roll / Baby I am under your control / Love me fast, kiss me slow / Hang onto anything you can hold

Repeat Chorus

I wanna love you till my days are done / I wanna tell you that I think that you're the one / Oh, girl, you know when it's all said and done / Everything about you's on the tip of my tongue
