While Young’s U.S. tour doesn’t kick off until the new year, the “You Didn’t” singer gifted fans with a surprise just in time for the holidays: a new version of his nostalgic massive hit “You Ain’t Here To Kiss Me.” Penned by Young with Tiffany Goss and Matt Alderman and produced by Dann Huff, the original version of the track was released in 2017 on the singer’s self-titled album.

The 2022 version offers a new spin on the song, with the stripped-down production putting Young’s rich vocals on full display.

“I can be a very emotional songwriter and, for some reason, the sad, reflective songs, often come naturally for me,” confessed Young. “The song is a true story about a situation my now wife and I had many years back — it just describes the feeling of missing someone and seeing everyone else around you in happy relationships. Dann Huff has been wanting to cut a new version of it for a while so we thought the timing was right to give it a bit of a new life around this coming New Year.”
