New music from Randy Travis is on its way.

The 64-year-old country icon took to social media on Wednesday, May 1 to announce he's gearing up to release his first newly-recorded song since before his 2013 stroke — a new single titled "Where That Came From."

"It’s been a while since my last new recording," wrote Travis alongside footage of himself in a recording studio, "but I’m excited to share that this Friday, May 3, I will be releasing my first brand new studio recording in more than a decade, 'Where That Came From.'"

"You’ll hear much more about the special team of folks who came together to help make this magical moment in my career possible in the coming week," teased the Grammy winner.

"In the meantime, just know that when it comes to me singing songs for you, there’s always more where that came from," added Travis. "Thank you for singing along all these years."

The "I Told You So" musician experienced a major stroke in 2013. "The whole third midsection of Randy’s left brain was affected, which is speaking, writing and reading," his wife, Mary, told PEOPLE in 2019.
