Kenny Chesney has already given fans a taste of what his new album, Welcome To The Fishbowl, out June 19, will sound like with the release of his duet with Tim McGraw, “Feel Like A Rock Star.” He’s giving fans another peek into the new project by releasing “Come Over” to country radio. The song, written by Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, shipped out to country radio Monday.
“’Come Over’” is about two people who are as broken as their relationship is, when they realize deep down that their time together has probably ran its course, but they aren’t really ready to emotionally or physically move on to something else,” Kenny said. “They keep going back to each other because it’s familiar. It’s about emotionally feeling wanted in a moment, but it feels impossible to let anybody else fill that void. It’s a really sexy song with lyrics that are incredibly universal.”
The song’s video was directed by Kenny’s longtime collaborator and friend Shaun Silva. They filmed it off the coast of Florida and while the “Come Over” video hasn’t been released yet, Shaun shared a few details about their latest collaboration.
“’Come Over’ is the most intimate journey I’ve captured of Kenny in the 10 years we’ve been making music videos together,” Shaun said. “It’s clear within the first five seconds of this video that Kenny is committed to his character in the video and was more than willing to open up to the vulnerabilities associated with this tortured love story. The music video was finished in black-and-white, delivering a strikingly timeless and cinematic result.”
Fans will hear some of the new album live this summer on Kenny and Tim McGraw’s co-headlining Brothers of the Sun Tour. The tour will stop at more than 20 stadiums across the country and bring along Jake Owen and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals as special guests. The tour kicks off June 2 in Tampa.
