We have been championing Mitchell Tenpenny, since before his record deal, before his number one hit, and before his headlining tour, and we are so proud to continue to do so. Tenpenny has made quite the career for himself, while still maintaining his integrity and his own sound. Today, the singer-songwriter released his newest track entitled “Broken Up.”
One of the most intriguing things about Tenpenny is the distinct tone of his voice, which resonates throughout all his music. “Broken Up” has that special quality, where you know, instantly, that it is Tenpenny singing. Lyrically, the song is about a guy who feels that he has made the wrong decision by breaking up with his girlfriend. In a unique twist on a traditional break-up song, Tenpenny finds a way to evoke honesty, pain, and reality by telling the story of the person, who does the breaking up rather than the other way around.
“But baby I’m still broken up about it / Yeah, I’ve had it up to here, had enough about it / Maybe I will up about it / Yeah, but only if I drink until I’m drunk about it / I wish that I could say that I’ll be fine / But baby I’m still broken up about it”
The new song follows suit with the likes of tracks from his debut record Telling All My Secrets, but this one elevates Tenpenny’s unique talent and vocals. We suspect that this new single is going to be another big hit with the fans!
