It’s real, y’all! Hunter Hayes just released a brand new song and music video! “Rescue” is about the people who help get you through a hard time. Hunter has been experimenting with new ways to release music in the last couple of years, rather than dropping full albums. This is is first new release since he dropped 3 songs last Fall. We caught him in concert last week and he told the crowd to expect even more new music from him this Summer!
The video features performance painter David Garibaldi, whom Hunter met at a CMA Foundation event. David is working on 3 canvases in the background as Hunter performs. He’s teaming up with Zappos For Good to release a line of shoes inspired by the paintings in the video, with proceeds going to charities including the CMA Foundation.
As usual, Hunter explains it best: “For me, “Rescue” is about people in my life who have shown up at a time I needed them the most but didn’t know. Times when I didn’t have strength and a conversation with a friend gave me strength. Every time I sing it, it’s a release and it’s a relief. I want the fans to hear whatever it is that rescues them whether that be a person, a place or even an experience. We can have so many different kinds of conversations with a song like this and I hope that this starts the dialogue. ”
