Chase Rice shares new single, “Key West & Colorado,” out now, July 29th on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.
If you attended the second half of Kane Brown’s Blessed and Free Tour in the winter and got there early for Chase Rice’s set, it’s likely you heard the then-unreleased song, “Key West & Colorado.” Played acoustically live, Rice sang about his journey of getting over a past love. The singer drove around the country and learned a lot about life from the people he met and the places he visited. After stops in Texas, Minnesota, and Boston, he discovered solace on the road somewhere between the beaches of Florida and the mountains of Colorado.
“Somewhere between that sand and the snow // Salt in the air, and salt on the road // Finally let myself let her go // Somewhere between Key West and Colorado”
The studio version adds percussion and light, synthesized guitar melodies that peacefully bring the listener to the beach. The new sound doesn’t distract us from his vocals, blending beautifully with the sobering lyrics. This is Rice’s first new release since “If I Were Rock & Roll” last October. The artwork on both singles share a similar style—the old-timey photographs may hint at the overall theme of the next album.
