Kid Rock's got Jesus sitting on one shoulder and Hank Williams Jr. on the other.

That's how he tells it in "Jesus and Bocephus," the second release from his upcoming album "First Kiss." The single was released to digital outlets on Tuesday.

"I got Jesus and Bocephus," Rock sings in the sparse track, accompanied by an organ, backup singers and light strums from an acoustic guitar. "They both help me to live my life."

"Jesus and Bocephus" follows the "First Kiss" title track, which was released earlier this month. The video has racked up 1.6 million views on YouTube since its Jan. 6 debut.

"First Kiss," Rock's first album since 2012's "Rebel Soul," is due out Feb. 24.
