Russell Dickerson released a brand new song, “Never Get Old” and revealed his sophomore record, Southern Symphony will be out December 4th. Read all the details below.
Singer-songwriter and NYCountry Swag OG, Russell Dickerson has released a new single “Never Get Old” that comes four months after his latest track “Home Sweet” and just five weeks into fatherhood with wife, Kailey, and son, Remington. “Never Get Old” is the third single to be released from his highly anticipated sophomore record, Southern Symphony. Previously, Dickerson referred to the forthcoming project as “RD2” before surprising fans today with the album title and official release date.
With “Never Get Old”, this new song begins to show a pattern and a potential style in which the collection of music may follow. For instance, in April “Love You Like I Used To” was the first single for this new chapter of music. It introduced a refreshed, artistically matured performer from what we know from the 2018 #1 smash “Yours” and 2019 hit “Every Little Thing”, both featured on Dickerson’s debut album, Yours.
While “Home Sweet” continues with the same energy and elements, the production shines as well. Dickerson, who played a role in production for both releases with Casey Brown and Dan Huff, seems to have found his sound for this new music, and “Never Get Old” is no exception to the substantial upgrade that listeners have been hearing from the artist.
The hardcore yet sophisticated loudness of the song that confines our speakers demands to be played for a live audience. In fact, for fans who caught Dickerson on Kane Brown’s The Worldwide Beautiful Tour earlier this year, concertgoers may remember Dickerson opening his energetic set with the new, unreleased song. Between the electric guitar primarily taking over and the sound effects of clapping present, RD surely has a banger on his hands.
Lyrically, “Never Get Old” utilizes different scenarios such as going to a dive bar with a good band on a 2-for-1 Saturday night to promote that never gets old feeling. It serves as a reminder that such little moments like a chill night at home with a significant other never gets old. The lyrics stretch to any circumstance whether social distancing is a common phrase or not. It’s both modern and traditional.
One thing remains true about Dickerson, the new record Southern Symphony will be epic. Pre-save the album now and check back on its release date, December 4th for the full album review.
