Alana Springsteen’s New Song “Trust Issues” is Out Now – Listen Here

Alana Springsteen’s new song “Trust Issues” is out now, May 13th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

Alana Springsteen noted that her latest release, “Trust Issues”, is her favorite song that she has written to date and we have to admit, it’s ours too! The new track follows recent releases “New Number”  and “Me, Myself and Why”. This group of songs is expected to make up the sequel project to Springsteen’s debut project History of Breaking Up (Part 1) EP.  

Written with Sasha Sloan, Jessie Jo Dillon, and Nick Bailey, Springsteen describes the day they wrote the song together as “more of a therapy session than anything else”. Springsteen was not the only one in the room who had just gone through a break-up, and she believes that them being in that room with her gave her the courage to say what she needed to out loud. Springsteen shared that “’Trust Issues’ was painful to write. It’s a song I had put off writing, but I knew needed to get out. For my sake.”

This song is about heartbreak, lies that unfold, and the pain of realizing the person you were with is not the person you thought they were. It’s about the fear of not knowing if you will be able to trust someone or a relationship again. Although the message is deep, it doesn’t come off as a sad song and instead is a heartbreak anthem with a feel-good tempo. 

“Thank you for all of the lies // And thank you for wreckin’ my life // Thank you for the tears and the unnecessary drama // Can’t believe I let someone like you around my mama // Thank you for breakin’ my heart // And thank you for leavin’ a scar // You got all my love and then you even took the truck too // And all I got are trust issues”

Alana Springsteen Releases New Song “New Number”

Alana Springsteen’s new song “New Number” is out now, April 8th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

Last month, Alana Springsteen released “Me, Myself, and Why” which was the first release off her upcoming project History of Breaking up (Part Two). Part One, which was her first album, was released last year and included singles like “Zero Trucks”, “California”, and “Trying Not To” with Roman Alexander.

Today, continuing to tease us with releases from her next highly anticipated project, Springsteen just dropped the album’s second single, “New Number”. The catchy and relatable track was written by Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley, and Rhett Akins. Sprinsteen co-produced the single with Cameron Jaymes. As Springsteen co-wrote each of the songs on Part One and each song she has ever released, this makes “New Number” the first and only outside cut the artist has ever recorded.

“New Number” is a raw, stripped-down expression of heartache. The track forces you to feel each and every emotion coming from the artist as she suffers through the pain of trying to move on. Feeling that she can’t do it on her own and lacking the self-control necessary to do so, she is begging her ex to make it easy on her and get a new number so that the choice is no longer up to her.

“One that I ain’t dialed at least a couple thousand times // So I don’t have to hear you say hello and I don’t have to hear you say goodbye // Let me off the hook so I don’t have to wonder // If you don’t need me, you need a new number”

Alana Springsteen Shares New Song “Me Myself and Why”

Songstress, Alana Springsteen’s new song “Me Myself and Why” is out now, March 4th, on all streaming platforms. Listen to the brand new track below.

Emerging artist, Alana Springsteen, released her latest single, “Me Myself and Why” today on all streaming platforms. Springsteen is an artist we have loved from the beginning and that fondness only grows with each new song.

In 2021, Springsteen released her first album History of Breaking Up (Part One), which featured seven tracks including “Zero Trucks”, “California”, and “Trying Not To” with Roman Alexander. “Me Myself and Why” will be the first release from History of Breaking up (Part Two). 

“Me Myself and Why” is a song about falling back into the same trap of being with someone you know you shouldn’t be and knowing that you have nobody to blame but yourself. It shares a rollercoaster of emotions in an incredibly relatable situation of having done something you know you will regret.  

Springsteen shared on her socials earlier this week that “[she is] so proud of what [they] were able to capture in the studio with this song. Regret, angst, pain, anger, sadness, passion…wanted all of that to come through in the final track and it does.”

“My head won’t slow down //This bedroom’s a ghost town, and I  // There’s no one else to blame for // The long night I’m in for when I close my eyes //It’s me myself and // Why didn’t I just let it go // Why did I pick that phone up // Why did I let you kiss me // Should have just kept that door shut // Why didn’t I say hell no // Why did I let you hold me tight // Tonight, It’s me, myself, and why, why, why”

Country Swag Reveals 2022 Artists to Watch

Introducing our 2022 Country Artists to Watch!

Over the past 6+ years of Country Swag, we have always loved to support rising artists and introduce our followers to the best new music in the genre. Since our first Artists to Watch list back in 2017, we have pinned rising stars like Luke Combs, Brett Young, Russell Dickerson, Walker Hayes, HARDY, Gabby Barrett, and more. Each year we choose ten new artists that we believe are destined for killer careers, our only rule when choosing is the artist can NOT already have a number one song.

Check out our picks in 20172018, 2019, 2o2o and 2021, before checking out the 10 artists we picked to have a huge 2022 below.

CONNER SMITH 

Listen: “I Hate Alabama”
Stay Connected: @ConnerSmithMusic

When we think 2022, we think CONNER SMITH. We were first introduced to this talented singer-songwriter in early 2021 when he joined us in New York City to film an acoustic session and interview. As Smith performed for our crew, it was obvious that everyone in the room could feel the magic from this talented artist. Just a few weeks later, after an overwhelming fan response to an unreleased song “I Hate Alabama” prompted Smith to officially release the track, the artist found himself in headlines everywhere. Barely 24 hours after it’s official drop, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team notoriously lost their game after a 19-week winning streak. Coincidence?

Conner Smith is destined to be a name stay in country music. His debut EP Didn’t Go Too Far is due out January 14th and fans can catch him on the road in early 2022 with Ryan Hurd.

 

ALANA SPRINGSTEEN

Alana Springsteen: ‘History of Breaking Up (Part 1)’ – EP Review

Alana Springsteen’s new EP, History of Breaking Up (Part 1) is out now, September 17th on all streaming platforms. Check out our full review and listen to the brand new music below.

We have been huge fans of up and coming artist, Alana Springsteen since we first featured her in our Spotlight Series. Her ability to craft a lyric paired with her beautiful voice keeps us in awe of her talent. Today, Springsteen released her brand new EP, History of Breaking Up (Part 1). Simply put: it’s everything we hoped it would be.

The new EP features seven perfectly crafted tracks, all co-written by the songstress. She even co-produced five of the seven songs. The poetic project uncovers the layers of emotions as one falls in love and experiences heartbreak. Although some may call love messy, Springsteen says, “isn’t it miraculous.” She later calls all her experiences “magic” in the co-title of the project.

The record kicks off with her previously released song “California.” The track is one of those songs that makes you feel like you are floating on a cloud. Between the effortless lyrics and the smooth quality of Springsteen’s voice, you truly feel at ease. Through the song, the singer expresses how it feels to have that spark with a person that sometimes blinds us from the truth that the relationship is not meant to be. It adds a double play element as a love letter to California, a place she has always felt called to.

“Maybe it’s us or maybe I’m just falling in love with California // I can’t decide if it’s in my mind // Or just the way the lights in Santa Monica // Shine on you maybe it’s just the view // Baby I’m confused, I can’t tell // maybe it’s us or maybe I’m just falling in love with California”

Similarly, Springsteen explores the theme of wanting something that’s not meant for you on her duet with Roman Alexander, “Trying Not To.” The song taps into those feelings of when you are trying to stay away from someone, but you just keep getting pulled in. That magnetism you feel is undeniable; despite, what your brain is telling you. “My heart has wanted one thing, but my brain has known better,” shared Springsteen about the song.

On “Girlfriend,” one of our favorite songs on the project, the singer-songwriter gets deeper and even more vulnerable. The heartbreaking, yet relatable ballad explores the idea that although you are with someone, you are not the one. It is full of self-doubt and insecurity, but it feels pure and honest – something country music is all about.

“Cause she’s still the one in your head // I’m just the girl in your bed // She’s got a hold of your heart // I’m just the one in your arms // When you’re with me, you ain’t with me // I feel her name on your lips when you kiss me, it kills me // You’re gonna end up with her in the end // Cause she’s your girl, I’m just your girlfriend”

Springsteen continues to showcase her undeniable vulnerability on the beautiful ballad “God Must Be Mad At Me.” The desperation and the anguish that the artist conveys in this beautiful song is unmatched by any new artist in country music right now. Springsteen finds a new way to convey how it feels to be in love with someone who does not love you back.

The singer continues to tackle that story on “Homesick.” The word usually describes a gut-wrenching feeling of missing a place, but Springsteen flips the term and uses it to describe the ‘home’ you find in a person. On the contrary, “I Blame You” is a more cheerful song that showcases how it feels to see places you love through the eyes of someone you love.

Springsteen ends the collection of songs on a lighthearted note. Having dug through the depths of heartbreak, “Zero Trucks” seems fitting to end the project with. It is clear that she really embodies the message that the song conveys. Sometimes, endings can feel freeing and right, it does not always have to be sad.

Overall, Springsteen outdoes herself on this EP. She perfectly crafted each song on the project. The singer is one to look out for, and we predict that her career is truly just getting started.

5 Things to Expect from Alana Springsteen’s EP ‘History of Breaking Up’

We chatted with country songstress Alana Springsteen about her new EP, History of Breaking Up (Part 1)available now. Here are five things to expect from the project.

  1. The brand new record is all about exploring the nuances of love and heartbreak in ways that are unique to Springsteen’s artistry.

“If you know me, you know that I’ve always been so inspired by love and heartbreak and I kind of wanted this project to be a look into my journey through that. I think love and heartbreak is something that we all go through and experience, but the way we process it changes as we get older.”

 

  1. She hopes fans can relate and fall in love with the songs, as much as she has.

“I honestly found out pieces about myself that I didn’t know until I wrote these songs and it kind of put things into perspective. I hope that everyone who listens to it or at least someone who listens to it can find a piece of themselves in it and maybe feel a little less alone.”

 

  1. The track “Girlfriend” was inspired by a real-life experience, and is one one of Springsteen’s favorites on the project.

“I’ve always struggled with self-doubt. I’ve struggled with insecurities. I think we all do. There’s something cool about this song because it is vulnerable, but at the same time, there’s so much power that comes with knowing when the time is to let go and when something is not meant for you.”

 

  1. “God Must Be Mad At Me,” is a pure and honest ballad that was designed to be that way in order to pay homage to country music storytelling.

“I would say it is probably the most vulnerable song on the record and I’ve always loved songwriting. Songwriting is a big reason I do what I do, and why I love country music. And I think this song on this project shows that. It really strips it back to the songwriting and the song. Some of my favorite songs are the one’s that are so simply written. […] That’s what this song means to me.”

 

  1. History of Breaking Up is just the beginning of Springsteen’s stories and songs about love, heartbreak, and everything in between. (Hint: There may be another project in the works.)

“There’s so many other nuanced parts of love and heartbreak and there’s no way I’m going to stop writing about it, so I think it’s kind of inevitable at this point, and we’re definitely building up to that.”

Alana Springsteen Releases Brand New Song “Zero Trucks”

Alana Springsteen’s new song, “Zero Trucks” is available now, July 9th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new song.

One of our favorite new songstresses is Alana Springsteen. We love the charm, spunk, and talent that Springsteen brings to every song she releases. Continuously putting out new music, Springsteen recently teamed up with fellow rising star, Roman Alexander on “Trying Not To” and released another song of her own, “California.” Today, the singer drops another incredible tune called “Zero Trucks.”

Co-written with Walker Hayes and Joe Clemmons, “Zero Trucks” is a song with a sunny disposition; despite, the lyrical content. The hooky and clever track portrays female confidence in the most effortless way. Despite the fact that the protagonist just saw her ex with a new woman, she is still feeling free and happy. It is the ultimate summer jam and empowerment song!

“I heard word on the dirt road // She’s riding shotgun //Thought it would, but it don’t hurt though // Now you’re her problem // I ain’t gonna chase your taillights // I ain’t gonna miss your speakers // I ain’t gonna waste one more night // Sleeping in your t-shirt”

Springsteen is the perfect person to sing this song. It is clear that she really embodies the message that the song conveys. As if the song is not fun enough, Hayes, Springsteen, and Hayes’ eldest daughter all collaborated on social media to make up a killer TikTok dance for the fun-loving tune. Hopefully “Zero Trucks” and its dance will go viral next to Hayes’ recent viral sensation track, “Fancy Like.”

“Maybe it’s us or maybe I’m just // Falling in love with California // I can’t decide // If it’s in my mind / It’s just the way that the lights in Santa Monica shine on you // Baby, it’s just a view baby // I’m confused // I can’t tell”

Co-written and co-produced by the rising artist, “California” will become one of your new favorites. Springsteen is an artist you’re going to want to keep your eye on. She is truly wise and talented beyond her years!

Alana Springsteen Joins Forces with Roman Alexander on New Song “Trying Not To”

Alana Springsteen’s new song, “Trying Not To” with Roman Alexander is available now, March 19th, on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

Back in July, we interviewed a promising new talent in Nashville, Alana Springsteen. Her pop-country sound resonates with young country fans everywhere, but it was her duet “Think About You” with Filmore that stopped us dead in our tracks. Today, the songstress released another mesmerizing duet with fellow country artist, Roman Alexander. Together they created a brand new song called “Trying Not To.”

After sharing sneak peeks of the song across their social media channels, especially on TikTok, it was clear that both Springsteen and Alexander feel this new song is something special, and we agree. “Trying Not To” taps into those feelings of when you are trying to stay away from someone, but you just keep getting pulled in. That magnetism you feel is undeniable; despite, what your brain is telling you.

“But I still think about you baby // I wish it didn’t feel so right // I really wanna // tell you I don’t miss you / and really mean it / I just can’t though / I want to / but I’m trying not to”

This song honestly has the potential to be a summer anthem of just following your heart. It is clear that both Springsteen and Alexander believe in the song and its story. We’re excited to see what’s next for the two emerging artists.
