Chris Stapleton’s New Song, “Cold” Showcases His Vulnerable Side

Chris Stapleton’s new song, “Cold” is available now, September 25th, on all streaming platforms. Written by Stapleton, Dave Cobb, Derek Mixon, and J.T. Cure, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.

Chris Stapleton has an iconic unique voice and sound, and his latest release, “Cold” surely doesn’t disappoint with his liquid lyrics that convey true storytelling. What starts to sound like a heartfelt piano ballad or a piano concerto at the beginning quickly transitions into a drum kick and a conjuring of strong emotion.  His voice wrings with hurt, asking “Why you got to be so cold? Why you got to go and cut me like a knife / And put our love on ice.” Stapleton is never one to back down from emotion, and this is right on par.

Chris Stapleton’s New Song “Cold” is available now

His grit and rawness parallel the vulnerability of his words so truly encompass, and create relatable pictures of the struggles of life. The leisurely pace of the guitar and steady drum contrast vividly with the strings that liken it to the backdrop of a tense movie scene. Only then, does the electric guitar create yet another mood, jazzing up the track and almost dates it to a prior time when that guitar solo was ever so popular.

Chris Stapleton’s new song, “Cold” is a must-listen for that late-night beer, after just a little too much hurt from a relationship. It all comes from an authentic place and lets us know that we’re not alone.
