Multi-Platinum country singer, Morgan Wallen released his much-anticipated new single “7 Summers” on Friday (August 14).
The fan-favorite song brings a smooth, beachy-vibe that just makes you want to sway along with a cold “coke and southern comfort.”
“7 Summers” allows Wallen’s signature vocals to be put on full display throughout the song especially noted during the second chorus’ ab libs. The song finds Wallen singing about a long lost love that he misses while wondering if she still thinks about him sometimes.
“But I wonder when you’re drinkin’, if you find yourself thinkin’ about that boy from East Tennessee, and I know we both knew better but we still said forever and that was 7 summers, a coke and southern comfort, Were we dumb or just younger, who knows? Back then you used to love the river and sippin’ on a sixer with me, does it ever make you sad to know that was 7 Summers ago,” sings Wallen in the chorus.
The Joey Moi-produced track was co-written by Morgan Wallen alongside Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
The country music superstar first started teasing fans about “7 Summers” when he was nominated by Jake Owen for the ‘Deep Cuts Challenge,’ that went viral on Instagram during quarantine.
“Got nominated by Jake Owen to post a demo. I’m somewhat on the fence about putting this one on my next record. Y’all let me know what you think,” Wallen wrote alongside the demo of the song in an Instagram story. Just a few weeks later, On July 25, Wallen wrote on Twitter, “Well I just looked around on social media and seems like y’all want me to drop Seven Summers.”
After fans begged for the song to be released, Wallen announced via TikTok that the song was coming out on August 14.
“7 Summers” follows his latest chart-rising single “More Than My Hometown,” both of which are expected to appear on the Tennessee native’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, which will serve as the follow up to 2018’s If I Know Me.
The new father recently promised his fans that his forthcoming sophomore album will be out within the next “6 months.” Wallen described the new album as more “mature” and “personal.”
