Dylan Schneider is releasing his new EP, Whole Town Talk, today on Interscope Records. Interscope launched the four-song set in partnership with Round Here Records, the new label founded by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley. The EP was produced by Mark Holman, who co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s chart-topping single, “Simple.”
The 19-year-old artist was born and raised in Indiana, and pays tribute to his roots on the infectious “How To Country,” which he co-wrote with Holman, James McNair and Justin Wilson. The title track, “Whole Town Talk,” is a sizzling party anthem that Schneider wrote with Corey Crowder and Tyler Hubbard while “Bad Thing About A Backroad” and “Hometown Heartless” poignantly recall a lost love. Backing musicians on the project include Dave Cohen (keyboards), Tony Lucido (bass), Ilya Toshinsky (acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin) and Derek Wells (electric guitar).
“We are so excited to get to join team Dylan to help encourage, support, and create opportunities for this amazingly talented artist and writer,” said Hubbard and Kelley. “We’ve loved Dylan since the day we met three or four years ago and are so thankful to have him in our family and on our roster. Timing is everything—and for Dylan, the time is now.”
“I’ve looked up to BK and Tyler for a long time now, and Interscope has been an amazing label home,” says Schneider. “To have two monsters in the music industry like FGL and Interscope joining forces on my behalf is a dream come true. Truly humbling. This new EP has been a long time coming, but I promise it’s worth the wait. This is hands down the best music I have ever written and recorded—can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Schneider is opening for FGL on the final leg of the multi-platinum duo’s Can’t Say I Ain’t Country tour, which continues tonight with a show at Blossom Music Center in Cleveland, OH.
