Kid Rock is further stoking the speculation that he is planning a run for the US Senate.

He posted the following comment on his Facebook page Thursday afternoon.

Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! - which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I'm planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It's not a hoax, it's a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..
Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I'll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their !
“I am the captain now.”

The singer also released two new songs overnight. Music videos for the "Greatest Show on Earth" and "Po-Dunk" hit Kid Rock's website and YouTube.

The Romeo native says he will take his music and his message directly to the people.
