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.”
