Kane Brown’s new song “Whiskey Sour” is out now, January 14th on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the new track below.
Brown first teased the track on Instagram on December 26th. The video features him in his kitchen lip-singing along to the first verse. Brown sings the chorus next to the speaker blaring the somber tune. The story centers around two young lovers talking about their forever until one day, much to the man’s surprise, she ends the relationship. What was once a drink they often shared together now becomes the liquid pain relief he needs to forget her memory. While drowning himself at the bar, he starts to wonder if her words matched her true feelings and if she ever loved him at all.
“So now I take my whiskey sour // Sitting barside after hours // Thinking how can I get over // If the love was never ours // Hell, I know you got my message // All my X’s and my O’s // And it kills me by the hour // Now I take my whiskey sours alone”
Penned by Josh Hoge, who has written many other songs for Brown including “Used To Love You Sober, “Cool Again,” and “One Thing Right,” alongside Adam Craig and Jaxson Free, the writing is clever and often poetic. While the chorus takes place in present day, the first verse paints detailed a picture of the high point of their relationship, and the second takes the listeners back to the night they first met. The rhyme scheme is super catchy, and the light acoustic guitar melody mixed with a heavy dose of fiddle makes this a neo-traditional masterpiece; a sound Brown has slowly been fading from. Right when you think he’s abandoned his southern roots, collaborating with pop-stars such as Khalid and Swae Lee, blackbear, and H.E.R., he comes right back with this beautiful, heart-wrenching country ballad.
With his seven-track mixtape and all these new singles, fans can expect the announcement of a new album in the near future. For now, you can catch Brown on his Blessed and Free Tour with supporting acts Chase Rice and Restless Road, which happens to stop in New York City at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night at 7 pm.
