Noah Thompson is teasing fans with new music following the release of debut single “One Day Tonight” earlier this year.

On Monday (June 27), the Season 20 winner of American Idol took to social media to share an unreleased new song called “On The Outside.” 

“Tell me what y’all think, should I finish it?? #songwriting #nashvilletn #ontheoutside,” Thompson captioned the clip.

The Kentucky native started the clip by explaining that he doesn’t feel that he is the greatest songwriter, but wants listeners opinions on a song he’s been working on.

“Alright, so here’s something I’ve been working on. I don’t consider myself a good songwriter, but I don’t know, we’ll see what y’all think,” Thompson said.

While strumming an acoustic guitar, Thompson then performed the unreleased song, which marks the first new music teaser since he won American Idol.

“It’s easy come and easy go / it’s the way you feel in your soul / it’s when you’re locked up in your mind / find ways to pass the time / only Heaven knows where this thing goes / but you don’t make it so easy / and I can’t make you stay / and my heart’s only beating / your way / if I had one too many… to drink and drive / I hope you know I’m all good / I’m all good on the outside,” Thompson sings the in clip.

Fans quickly took to the comments and demanded that Thompson release the song, while also praising his songwriting/vocal abilities.

“Yesssss!!!!! Finish it!!!! We need this!” one fan wrote, while another added, “DON’T STOP!! Finish what u started!!! Sounds GREAT!!!!!!!!!”

Other fans said, “Absolutely it’s so beautiful touches my heart,” “Keep it I love anything you sing,” and “sounds great can’t wait to hear more.”

Thompson recently sat down with Music Mayhem to chat about new music and what’s to come from him in the near future.

During the interview, the 20-year-old admitted that he is thankful to be able to have the time to sit down and write new music.

“It’s definitely something that I’m looking forward to doing now that I have the time because I’m not working an 80-hour job every week anymore. I can finally sit down and try to write some songs,” Thompson explained. “Being on [American Idol] has definitely helped me become a better writer. It’s given me something to say.”

Thompson is currently hard at work writing new music and says that he is “shooting for” a debut album.

“I can’t wait, I really can’t,” he said with excitement, while talking about the potential for a debut project.

Last weekend (June 18), Thompson returned home to perform at the 3-day Rush & Rowdy “extravaganza” in Rush, Kentucky. His upcoming shows have yet to be announced.
