To celebrate the official release of his new record, Kill the Lights, Luke Bryan took over the Good Morning America stage in Central Park Friday, Aug. 7, playing a couple of tracks from the new album.

Bryan of course played the No. 1 hit and lead-off single, “Kick the Dust Up,” but also gave viewers one of the first live performances of the second single, “Strip It Down." Before launching into the song, Bryan talks about how he co-wrote half the songs on the new album, which he says is an improvement from the previous album.

“On Crash My Party I wrote like 40 songs and cut like two of ‘em, and for this one I wrote like 10 and cut, you know, a lot more, so I was excited that I got on my own album,” he says, admittedly a little tongue-in-cheek.

Bryan also discussed his kids, including his nephew that he and his wife now take care of after his parents’ deaths, and what taking care of a 13-year-old boy is like when he can put you in a headlock.

“He got me in a headlock two nights ago and I’m admitting now,” he addresses the camera, “you had me. I couldn’t get out."

The performance featured Bryan at an upright piano, giving a passionate performance of the sexy ballad.

The artist released“Strip It Down” to fans who had pre-ordered the record as an instant download, and also released an accompanying lyric video. The sultry tune is sure to make any female Bryan fan swoon.

In promotion for Kill the Lights this week, Bryan treated fans to personalized songs written especially for them via his Twitter page in partnership with Target, including one for Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson. The store is selling an exclusive deluxe edition with three additional songs, available now.
