Multi-Platinum-selling country star Sam Hunt releases his eagerly-awaited sophomore album SOUTHSIDE, April 3rd on MCA Nashville. The album will feature his latest #1 radio hit “Kinfolks,” his new single, “Hard to Forget,” the introspective ballad “Sinning With You,” and more from the award-winning artist. SOUTHSIDE will be the first full album since Hunt’s critically acclaimed, GRAMMY-nominated, Triple-Platinum-selling debut, Montevallo, which was released nearly six years ago in 2014.
Multi-Platinum-selling superstar Sam Hunt releases brand new song “23” today.
Written by Hunt with Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Chris LaCorte (who also produced the track), “23” has the singer thinking back warmly on a past relationship. Using an early photo of his wife Hannah’s aunt and uncle when they were a young couple for his song art, Hunt further illustrates the nostalgia and fondness of days gone by. Despite moving on with new cities, jobs and life, the story goes:
You’ll always have long blond hair
You’ll always be Memphis queen
You’ll always be my first time in New Orleans
No matter where I go, no matter what I do
I’ll never be 23 with anyone but you
You can marry who you want
Go back to Tennessee
But you’ll never be 23 with anyone but me
We’ll always have Folly beach
We’ll always have delta nights
We’ll always be in-between real love and real life
At a recent session at Ocean Way studio in Nashville, Hunt and his band performed a scaled back version of the new song. Fans can watch the performance of “23” HERE
“23” is the first new track from Hunt since last year’s chart-topping album SOUTHSIDE featuring a string of back-to-back No. 1 hits with “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s,” “Kinfolks,” and “Hard To Forget.” The Platinum-selling project debuted to critical acclaim with the album and various tracks landing on multiple “Best of” lists for 2020 including The New York Times Best Albums and NPR’s Best Songs (“Hard To Forget”). The album earned additional praise from American Songwriter, Associated Press, Billboard¸ Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Pitchfork, Slate, The Ringer and more.
Fans can find Hunt touring across the country with upcoming shows from Hollywood, Fla. to Huntington Beach, Cali. For information on Sam Hunt, visit www.SamHunt.com.
