Actor and comedian Leslie Jordan isn’t done with country music yet, and in a new interview it’s clear that country music just wasn’t enough for him.

Brown shared a short clip on Instagram on Oct. 21, with Jordan commenting, “I’m so proud of this song. Thanks for making it happen.”
A day before Jordan died in a car accident in Hollywood, he shared a video of himself singing with songwriter and producer Danny Myrick. There, he teased more new music. In the clip she sings the same song she sang to close the interview with Mason, but the Instagram video includes this caption:
