Rising country singer-songwriter Lauren Hall is set to release the heart-touching new single “Just Like I Knew” on the 4th September 2020.
Speaking about her upcoming release, Lauren said “The inspiration behind this song came from an ongoing relationship that just kind of seemed to do more bad than good emotionally for me. I had a hard time letting go of this person and justified it because in my head it wasn’t all bad all the time. At the end of the day though I knew it wasn’t good for me, but out of care for this person I kept allowing him back into my life and in a way was almost inviting the heartache in.”
She continued “I’m really proud of this song because it was the first song I ever co-wrote when I went to Nashville to work on my own music for the first time. It was such an honor to be able to write it with one of my producers, Phillip Lammonds, who is a songwriter with Curb Records and has had cuts by Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Kellie Pickler and others. This is really the song that started the whole EP, and it is also the song we first tracked in the studio when we began recording, so it holds a lot of meaning for me. I’m very excited to finally be able to share it with everyone!”
This upcoming release is a moving mid-tempo number that infuses elements of country, pop, & rock to create an attention-grabbing track that you can listen to for hours at a time.
The song features an enduring hook that perfectly reflects the balance between fragility & strength that lies within the journey behind the lyrics of the song.
The emotional narrative behind the lyrics is one that resonates across many of our past emotions & experiences, which help’s to create a natural connection from the very first listen.
Lauren delivers a sublime vocal performance that carries across the fragile nature behind the lyrics & showcases the unique & ear-catching qualities behind her extraordinary voice.
Overall, I believe that Lauren has helped to create a stunning musical piece that carries a moving message that many listeners will be able to connect with on a deeply personal level. I would whole-heartedly recommend this song to anyone to listen to upon its upcoming release.
