UPDATE: Please note that the song “Detroit, Michigan” is no longer live on michigan.org, as it is now available for public purchase.
We’re excited to announce that Pure Michigan fans can get a sneak peak of Kid Rock’s new album “Rebel Soul” on michigan.org starting today! The anthem “Detroit, Michigan” will be available exclusively on michigan.org through November 19, when “Rebel Soul” is released.
Throughout the track, Kid Rock showcases his pride for the city by highlighting a number of Detroit superstars, icons and landmarks – including Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Henry Ford and Hitsville USA.
It’s clear through his lyrics and philanthropic efforts that Kid Rock is passionate about Detroit, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with him to offer fans of his and Pure Michigan the chance to preview “Detroit, Michigan.”
