Hit maker Cole Swindell is punching the clock on summertime with his newest release. His party-buzzing “Drinkin’ Hours” is like a how-to job description for those in need of a few weeks off.

Part of Swindell’s upcoming EP, Down Home Sessions V, the cans-up anthem is built on the cleverly boozy motto, “no working during drinking hours.” A good-timing tempo and singalong lyrics make it perfectly blended for tailgating and sunny weekend hangs, and it’s just the beginning of what Swindell has planned for this summer. In celebration of his fifth year as a major label recording artist, he’ll release one track from the new EP each month for the next five months (including “Drinkin’ Hours”).

“I can’t believe I am about to release my fifth Down Home Sessions. It’s one of my favorite projects because it allows me to share songs I have written between albums,” Swindell shares. “I’m excited to roll this one out a little differently by giving the fans one song a month for the next 5 months focusing on fun uptempo music!”

Swindell’s already been putting the track to work, delivering it to a packed Gillette Stadium as part of Luke Bryan’s Sunset Repeat Tour.

He’ll keep the good times going alongside Bryan all summer. The tour resumes with fellow openers Jon Langston and DJ Rock July 11 in Saratoga Springs, New York, and continues on through October 25 with stadium show at Detroit’s Ford Field.
