Hunter Hayes is back with a brand new song and video for his latest single, “The One That Got Away” and we can’t be more stoked on it! The track is the first song from his upcoming album “Red Sky (Part II)” due out later this year. The new album is the companion to last year’s “Wild Blue (Part I).” “Wild Blue” was one of our favorite albums of 2019, expressing all of the emotions related to going through a breakup or a difficult time in your life.
If the first single is any indication, “Red Sky” seems like it will focus more on the themes of freedom and moving on to a better situation. Which is what we’re all hoping 2021 will bring! “The One That Got Away” is a massive pop banger, a slight deviation from his heavy country sound and it will definitely get you dancing.
After Hunter’s out of this world run on “The Masked Singer,” he’s ready to be even more honest in his music. We can’t wait to hear the rest of Hunter’s new album, and fingers crossed we’ll get a virtual concert from him again soon! We’ve missed seeing him on stage so much, he’s one of our favorite performers as he truly gives each song a new life when performed live.
After nearly 4 years since dropping his last album, the wait is finally over! And we mean over – Hunter Hayes is dropping his new album, “Wild Blue: Part I,” TOMORROW, August 16th! Hunter shared the big news on an appearance on the TODAY show earlier this week. He also dropped the title track of the album, “Wild Blue,” which you might have heard if you caught Hunter on the Closer To You Tour earlier this year (IT’S SO GOOD). If not, listen to the track now! The song, and the album, are all about finding yourself and the true feelings of freedom and lightness that go along with it.
We’re even more excited because “Part I” means there is a “Part II” and maybe even a “Part III” on the way, which means even more new music from Hunter! What was the reason for such a long wait? Hunter took his time to really write everything on his own and make his most personal and honest record yet. He initially set out with the mindset of creating an album that no one would ever hear, which gave him the freedom to be as honest and real as possible. This honesty really shines through on tracks like “Dear God” and “My Song Too.”

Hunter Hayes promised fans he would release more music this year, and although he hasn’t dropped a new album, he has been releasing tracks one at a time. He recently dropped a song and video with The Shadowboxers, called “You Should Be Loved,” and he just released a brand new song called “More.” We’re always thrilled to have new music from Hunter, any way he chooses to release it! Listen to the track below and be prepared to fall in love on first listen. Stay tuned for even more from Hunter coming soon!
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. ”
Hunter Hayes just dropped the video for his new single “Yesterday’s Song!” We’ve had this song playing on repeat since we first heard it on tour last Summer. It’s the perfect single to release now that the weather is warming up – you’ll want to crank it with the windows down! The video cleverly incorporates mirrors and flashbacks (you might recognize some of Hunter’s old videos!) to show you shouldn’t let the past hold you down. Watch the video below!

Hunter Hayes just dropped the music video for his new single, “Yesterday’s Song!” The track is the first single of off Hunter’s upcoming 3rd full length album (and it’s so good we’ve left it playing on repeat since the first time we heard it). Hunter is always one to try out the latest technology to make more immersive experiences for his fans, and we love what he’s done with this video. The video, in collaboration with YouTube, is a Virtual Reality video that shows Hunter in the studio. You can see Hunter playing each instrument in the song, isolated: drums, guitar, vocals, sample machine, and more.
To watch the video on a computer, you’ll need to use Google Chrome browser. Make sure you use the navigation arrows to scroll around and see Hunter playing each instrument! Or, use a VR headset to get the full, immersive experience of the video. You’ll feel like you’re right in the studio with Hunter! Watch the video for “Yesterday’s Song” below!

Hunter Hayes got 2017 off to an awesome start, with new music! He premiered a new track on “Good Morning America” called “All For You.” The song is from the soundtrack to the movie “Monster Trucks,” starring Lucas Till (aka the cute guy in the “Hannah Montana” movie).
Hunter also talked about his upcoming new album, which he’s been hard at work on for the last two and a half years. We can’t wait for even more new music from Hunter in 2017! Watch Hunter premiere “All For You” on GMA below! We’re still fangirling over his guitar solo.
It might have been Hunter Hayes’ 25th Birthday last week, but he celebrated by giving his fans a surprise gift! Hunter had promised new music by his birthday earlier in the year, and to celebrate the big day, he released three new tracks on Soundcloud! If you were lucky enough to catch Hunter on your this Summer, you will probably recognize a track or two. We could go on forever about how incredible and talented Hunter is, so suffice to say that the new tracks have been well worth the wait!
Listen to the new music on Soundcloud via Hunter’s Twitter below! “Amen,” “Yesterday’s Song,” and “Young Blood” are included in Hunter’s playlist.
