Chris Young’s new song, “Rescue Me” is available now, June 11th, on all streaming platforms. The song marks the first peek at his forthcoming 8th studio album due out this August. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
Written by Chris Young with Christian Stalnecker, Josh Hoge, Mark Holman, and Matt McGinn, “Rescue Me” is a mid-tempo ballad about finding that special person who becomes the one you put before yourself, the person you’d do anything for, and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. However, before making that commitment you want to make sure that person is ready to reciprocate those feelings and is ready to rescue you. It’s a beautiful track that teaches an important lesson that relationships should be an equal partnership and that everyone deserves to find their hero.
“But tell me, who is gonna rescue me? // ‘Cause it sure feels like I’m kryptonite // How you got me on one knee, with my hand out beggin’ for mercy. // Yeah, what’s a happy ending if I can’t get the girl? // What’s it matter if I save the world if you don’t promise me before you take this ring // And rescue me …”
Young first teased the song back in February, asking fans for feedback and if it should be included on his next album. This isn’t the first time the singer-songwriter has teased new music on social media. He previously shared “If That Ain’t God” and “In It”.
Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to hear the rest of the album. Young announced that his eighth studio album, Famous Friends, will be released on August 6thth. It’s been four years since the Tennessee Native released a full album and we can’t wait to listen!
