Tim McGraw adds a self-deprecating note to his repertoire with his newest song.
“Sick of Me,” the newest song off McGraw’s upcoming album Sundown Heaven Town, is a mid-tempo rocker that finds the country star building up the object of his affection while tearing himself down, leaving him vulnerable.
“All I want to tell you is you were right,” he sings. “And I miss you / And I’m sick of me, too.”
“Sick of Me” is apologetic in its tone, McGraw searching for forgiveness for all the times he’s done his lady wrong.
The new song follows Sundown Heaven Town‘s two singles released so far, “Lookin’ for That Girl” and “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s,” the latter featuring wife Faith Hill.
Sundown Heaven Town is out Sept. 16.
“This album is very encompassing of everything that I’ve done in my career,” McGraw said in a press release about the record. “I think it’s a good microcosm of what my 20 or so years in music have been, in a lot of ways. You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed. To me, the title of the album is all about that time where you stop doing what you have to do, and start doing what you want to do.”
It’s McGraw’s 13th studio album and first since February 2013’s Two Lanes of Freedom.
