Country star Thomas Rhett recently dropped a nostalgic new single, “Slow Down Summer.”
“I wrote this song from the point of view of two people who are in love during senior year of high school. I envisioned them headed off to different schools and they’re starting to understand that the moment the weather starts to change, they’ve got a 99-percent chance this relationship is not going to work,” Rhett said about the song.
The song was written alongside frequent collaborators Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Sean Douglas, and Rhett Akins.
“Falling fast in a one lane town / Tangled up with your lips on mine / Never seen a brighter green than those eyes / And I put my jacket on your shoulder / Wishing the weather wasn’t getting colder,” Rhett sings in the song’s chorus. “Letting you go / Holding onto each other / Closing our eyes sayin’ / Slow down Summer.”
The single will feature on his newly-announced sixth studio album, Where We Started, which will arrive in early 2022. Meanwhile, Rhett also announced that Country Again: Side B will be released in fall 2022.
