Brett Eldredge is sharing more new music off his upcoming self-titled album. The project, which will be released on August 4th, will include the songs “Castaway” and “Love Someone,” which showcase different sides of Brett.
He said, “‘Castaway’ is one of the most poetic songs I’ve written. It’s the story of how you go through something for so long on your own and think that you need to continue to chase it, but you get so far away that you’re deserted. You’re a castaway. You figure out the thing you needed the whole time was love. I think more than this being about some certain person, this song is my story, my relationship, my letter to love.”
Co-written by Brett, “Castaway” already boasts two unique videos — a solo performance at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and a live acoustic version of the track as part of his “Airwaves Sessions” series.
Brett premiered “Love Someone” earlier this summer on Late Night with Seth Meyers. He said, “It’s about the simplicity of love. You know love is actually, when it comes down to it, a very simple thing. What are those things that you look for most in a companion? It’s someone that keeps you warm at night, that’s always there for you. Somebody that laughs at the way you dance – they think it’s funny but they love you for it. They smile when you’re holding their hand. This is one of those first-listen kind of songs that just makes you smile, makes you feel good, makes you want love if you don’t have it and makes you happy to be in love if you are.”
Brett continues on Luke Bryan’s Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day tour on Friday (July 21st) in Kansas City, MO.
