Kid Rock gives home town premiere for new single

Kid Rock is putting out his new single on Monday, Oct. 1, but he gave his Detroit fans a first listen to the song.

The Clarkston-based rocker stopped by radio station WRIF on Friday, Sept. 28, spending the better part of an hour with the morning team of Drew Lane and Mike Clark. During the segment he played "Let's Ride," a gritty, guitar-dominated tune he said was about U.S. combat troops overseas. "Grab your guns, let's ride/And may your conscience be your guide/I'll say a prayer for you to make it through to the other side," he sings in the chorus.

"Let's Ride," which features Sponge's Vinnie Dombroski on drums, is slated to be formally released on Monday, while it and other songs from Rock's upcoming "Rebel Soul" are being used for NASCAR broadcasts throughout the fall.

"Rebel Soul," Rock's ninth studio album and the follow-up to 2010's platinum "Born Free," is due out Nov. 19. Rock described the rest of the album as "all over the map," featuring both rock and country-flavored tracks, one "really dark song" called "The Mirror" and a rap-rock song he described as "1998 Kid Rock," referring to his breakthrough "Devil Without a Cause" album.
