Over the past year, Hunter Hayes reportedly wrote over 100 songs, and now he’s gearing up to share some of those on his yet-untitled third studio album. Today we get get to hear another single from that album “Yesterday’s Song.”
Hayes co-wrote “Yesterday’s Song” with Barry Dean and Martin Johnson. It’s about the emotional shift that takes place when someone who once meant the world suddenly doesn’t. “You were the soundtrack every night in my bed/ You were the ‘woo-hoo’ getting stuck in my head/ Now you’re just an echo where the feeling is gone/ Baby, now you’re just yesterday’s song, you’re yesterday’s song,” Hayes sings in the second part of the chorus.
“I’ve been on such an incredible journey this past year, not just musically but personally as well,” Hayes said. “There’s always been that next goal to reach, whether it was a single or an album or an arena tour, and this is the first time I’ve really been able to kind of step back from all of that and just let my instincts and creativity flow. I’ve waited a long time to get this new music out, and ‘Yesterday’s Song’ really captures that free feeling, that joyous realization that you’re moving on and starting this fresh, new chapter.”
Hayes also shared two other singles, “Amen” and “Young Blood” as well.
