Morgan Wallen shared an unreleased new song, titled “I Guess,” likely giving fans a taste of what’s to come on his forthcoming, yet-to-be announced new album. The country superstar took to his Instagram on Friday (Jan. 12) to share a snippet of a new song he’s working on, which was met with praise from the country music community.

Listen To Morgan Wallen’s Unreleased New Song “I Guess” Below

The post featured a work tape of an acoustic track that finds the East Tennessee native reflecting on a breakup, where the demise of the relationship was blamed on him. In the song, Wallen questions why his ex fell in love with him in the first place if he is such a “problem” while also pointing out her flaws.

As the tune continues, he then recalls the dynamics of the romance and wonders if he is truly the reason for the breakup, or if his ex-lover played a larger role in the challenges that ultimately ended their relationship.

“You say I’ll never change/ just a go around town with some gasoline/ just trying to bum a flame/ going to burn the whole place down/ then how do you explain/ ever falling in love with a guy like me in the first place/ turn around and say that I’m the worst thing/ I guess I’m the problem/ and you’re miss never do no wrong/ if I’m so awful/ then why’d you stick around this long/ and if it’s the whiskey/ then why you keep pulling it off the shelf/ you hate that when you look at me, you halfway see yourself/ and it got me thinkin’/ if I’m the problem/ then you might be the reason,” Wallen sings in the clip, which seemingly features background vocals from ERNEST.

Song Earned Praise From The Country Music Community

The song quickly amassed praised from the country music community. Parker McCollum, ERNEST, Trey Lewis, Josh Ross praised the tune, while hundreds of Wallen’s loyal fans begged for the song to be released.

“Release that exactly how it is. So good,” McCollum wrote, while Lewis commented, “Man, this is a repeat play all day.”

“Damn if that ain’t the truth in a song,” Ross added.

Previously Teased Unreleased Song Written With Post Malone

In late December 2023, Wallen shared a demo of an unreleased new song, titled “I Had Some Help,” which he co-wrote with Post Malone as well as frequent collaborators ERNEST and Charlie Handsome.

The post, which has since been deleted, featured a work tape of a hip-hip inspired track that finds the East Tennessee native singing about a breakup that was blamed on him. However, as the song progresses, he realizes that it wasn’t all his fault and that he “had some help” from his ex-lover, and they share equal blame in the demise of their relationship.

“Take the blame/ go round like you ain’t guilty of something/ already lost the game that you’ve been running/ well it’s catching up to you/ you think that you’re so innocent after all the shit you did/ I ain’t an angel, you ain’t Heaven sent/ can’t wash our hands of this/ I had some help, it ain’t like I can make this kind of mess all by myself/ don’t act like you ain’t tell me pull that bottle off the shelf…/ if you couldn’t tell/ they say teamwork makes the dream work/ hell I had some help/ help/ help,” Wallen sang.

New Morgan Wallen Album On The Way

These unreleased new tunes will likely appear on Wallen’s forthcoming new album. Wallen, who recently reflected on his whirlwind year in 2023, is currently working on the follow-up to his record-breaking third studio album, One Thing At A Time. He revealed that he is working on his fourth album during an interview with Billboard. During the interview, the 30-year-old country star shared that he is currently “writing and reviewing” songs for album 4. Wallen’s fourth studio album will follow his record-breaking project, One Thing At A Time, which features 36 songs.

Despite Wallen’s time in the studio, several songs from his One Thing At A Time album will still impact country radio as singles, including his newest single, the Eric Church-assisted “Man Made A Bar.”

Joe Diffie Tribute To Appear On HIXTAPE Vol. 3: DIFFTAPE

Additionally, Wallen recently joined forces with Post Malone and HARDY for a collaborative performance of Joe Diffie’s iconic 1993 hit, “Pickup Man,” at the 2023 CMA Awards in Nashville, Tennessee. The trio of hitmakers’ collaboration will appear on the forthcoming HIXTAPE Vol. 3: DIFFTAPE, which will serve as a tribute to late country music icon Joe Diffie, who died in March of 2020. The project, which will be released in March of 2024, was announced immediately following their CMA Awards performance.

“The Diffie Estate is thrilled to partner with Big Loud and HARDY in preserving and revitalizing Joe Diffie’s musical legacy,” the Estate shared in a press release at the time. “With their shared excitement and passion, this collaboration promises to carry on the incredible journey of a true legend.”
