Warren Zeiders Shares ‘Pretty Little Poison’ His Debut Album From Warner Records

By Stevie Connor.

Warren Zeiders shares ‘Pretty Little Poison,’ his debut album from Warner Records. Delivered on the heels of his 717 Tapes releases and compilation album — a collection of stripped-back singles and EP songs that introduced his powerhouse voice and sharp songwriting — ‘Pretty Little Poison’ positions him as Nashville's newest headliner at just 24 years of age.

With an all-star list of collaborators counting producers including GRAMMY-Award-winner Ross Copperman (Dierks Bentley, Old Dominion), Bart Butler (Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi) and Ryan Gore (Kelsea Ballerini, Midland), and co-writers including Chris Stapleton,Eric Paslay, Randy Montana, and more, the album is part road warrior, part old-fashioned grit, and a multitude of genre influences.

These influences are apparent across the album’s 14 tracks — "God Only Knows" and "Coming Down High" are southern rock anthems built for summertime parties and backwoods joyrides, while songs like "Pain Killer" and "Love's A Leaving" explore the darkness of outlaw country. The bright choruses of "West Texas Weather" and "Some Whiskey" showcase his powerhouse vocals, while "Inside Your Head" — written by eight-time Grammy winner Stapleton — makes room for the lap steel guitars and timeless twang of classic country. For Zeiders, whose viral cover of "Tennessee Whiskey" played such a crucial role in his own rise to success, featuring a Stapleton cut on ‘Pretty Little Poison’ feels a whole lot like fate.

The album’s lead single and title track — the cinematic “Pretty Little Poison” — debuted as “most added” on Country radio and recently broke into the Top 40 on the Mediabase Country Airplay Chart and the Top 25 of Billboard's Hot Country Songs Chart. The track — which Rolling Stone crowned one of The Best Country Songs of 2023 So Far — has already amassed more than 75M global streams since its spring release.

Zeiders has quickly risen from a college athlete to one of Nashville’s hottest stars at just 24 years old, amassing more than 1.2 billion global cumulative streams, 1.4 billion views on TikTok, and a combined 6 million social followers.
