After securing more than 188 million streams worldwide with viral tracks “Carrying Your Love” and “Dutton Ranch Freestyle,” singer/songwriter and rapper David Morris delivers his newest single, “I Hate This Job.”

Written by David Morris alongside Jared Griffin and Noah West, the anthemic tune puts a hold on the constant noise of life to appreciate the simple things in life, while simultaneously poking fun at hating your day job. The relatable lyrics paired with the bright guitar riffs offer a quintessential weekend singalong.

“I love drivin’ in my truck/ I love fillin’ up a full tank of gas/ I love Sundays on the river/ And grillin’ what’s for dinner/ And that feeling when I’m stackin’ some cash/ Oh I’m too blessed to be stressed/ I really can’t complain/ But I must confess there’s just one thing/ I hate this job/ I just wanna quit/ I’m so sick and tired of all of this shit,” sings genre-bending Morris in the honest and comedic lyrics.

“This is a song that I’ve been trying to write for years,” explained Morris of the writing process. “Every iteration was closer to where it ended up. I heard it in my head as something that was classic and modern. Country and rock … and very catchy, easy to sing along to. One of those songs you feel like you’ve already heard before. I’m so stoked about how it turned out.”

The country riser also shared an accompanying music video for the track that shows a disgruntled Morris working at a pizza parlor while he dreams of being anywhere but there.
