And today, he’s previewing another new song seemingly titled “Float” that I’m already obsessed with.
It’s a heartbreaker where he talks about moving on from a girl he feels he isn’t right for because he can’t give her everything she needs, and thinks someone else could.
Check out this chorus and tell me it doesn’t hit like a ton of bricks:
“It’s bout time that I left Austin Bout time you settled down With a man who doesn’t move as quick As the trains rollin’ through town Bout time that I face The hard times I’ve let go Love was a just an ocean I would drown before I float”
He also teased some of the other lyrics on Twitter yesterday:
THERE IS CONCRETE BELOW ME AND A SKY ABOVE SO BLUE, IM FINALLY LEAVING AUSTIN AND I WISH IT WAS WITH YOU
He’s been working on his next album, too, and every single song he teases just makes me even more excited for when that day finally comes.
About a month ago, he shared an update on it and said he was working as hard as he possibly could to get it done, and also said it would take as long as it takes to make this next record something he’s truly proud of:
Making it exactly what I want it to be (no rudeness attached) Never been more invested in something. I told my family and God however long it takes is how long it takes. Jumped the gun before and I refuse to ever do it again. Love you guys and I appreciate you #buckinandsuckinhttps://t.co/rvSIwEcAQz
