Three-time Grammy® winner and superstar Tim McGraw announced today two forthcoming digital deluxe versions of his #1 album HERE ON EARTH – HERE ON EARTH Ultimate Edition & HERE ON EARTH Ultimate Video Edition, which will be available April 16 via Big Machine Records. Both albums are available for pre-order now. McGraw also unveiled a brand-new song “God Moves The Pen” which is available everywhere today. Watch the lyric video here.
The Ultimate Edition features six new tracks, including “God Moves The Pen,” “Undivided” – McGraw’s latest collaboration with Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard – and two additional bonus movie tracks, “Keep Your Eyes on Me” with Faith Hill from the 2017 feature film The Shack and “Gravity” from the 2018 Academy Award ® winning documentary Free Solo. McGraw wrote the former alongside Hill, Lori McKenna and Shane McAnally and the latter with McKenna.
The Ultimate Video Edition will include all tracks on the Ultimate Edition with the addition of videos for six songs: “Here on Earth,” “I Called Mama,” “Gravy,” “Undivided,” “Thought About You,” and “Neon Church.” Full track lists for both albums are below.
McGraw’s original HERE ON EARTH album – his 16th studio album – debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country album chart upon its August 2020 release, marking his 4th straight decade with a #1 album on the Billboard Country Album chart. The album was his 19th worldwide #1 and his 17th U.S. #1, tying him for second most #1 albums in the U.S., just behind George Strait.
The record offered a collection of songs brought together to create vignettes of shared human emotions such as love, relationships, introspection and fun. HERE ON EARTH Ultimate Edition & Ultimate Video Edition add to the musical tapestry of life presented in the original album, further allowing listeners to connect to each other through the universal language of music.
Additionally, a special edition 12” vinyl of “Undivided” will be available on June 12 for Record Store Day. McGraw and Hubbard’s first live performance of the upbeat and heartfelt collaboration came during the 2021 Celebrating America television special following President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January. Most recently, they released a Director’s Cut version of the song’s music video.
An acoustic version of McGraw’s hit single “I Called Mama” – originally released in May 2020 – will be on the B-side of the vinyl. The song has continued to serve as a reminder of the importance of home and human connection, especially in the toughest of times.
