Brett Eldredge Drops Brand-New Single, ‘Somethin’ I’m Good At’ [LISTEN]
Brett Eldredge has revealed a brand-new single, “Somethin’ I’m Good At.” The song — the first taste of Eldredge’s forthcoming third studio album — is an uptempo party that finds the singer letting loose while professing that he’s not very good at a lot of things … but he will make you smile.
Written by Eldredge and Tom Douglas, “Somethin’ I’m Good At” is, Eldredge says in a press release, “full of life and excitement.”
“It’s exciting to write and record a song that captures this side of me,” Eldredge adds. “I hope it puts a smile on your face when you hear it as you’re driving down the road or unloading the dishwasher or whatever you’re doing, I just hope it makes you happy.”
In the chorus of “Somethin’ I’m Good At,” Eldredge sings, “I can’t change the world, no I can’t change a flat / If you give me your heart, girl, well, you may never get it back / You said you’d never smile again, but oh no, here it comes / Would you look at that / I finally found somethin’ I’m good at.” The song, Eldredge tells the Tennessean, “is about embracing your flaws and your quirks,” and gives the artist a chance to show off his goofy, fun side through rapid-fire lyrics and cute asides.
“This song captures my personality 100 percent, word for word, more than any song I’ve ever done. When we were choosing to put this out, it was, ‘Yeah, this is going to be a little different. I want it to be different. I want to show this fun side that I’ve never got to show,'” Eldredge explains. “I want to always catch my fans by surprise. This is a no-brainer.”
The album on which “Somethin’ I’m Good At” will appear is set for release this summer.
“As soon as you hear my voice you know it’s me, and that’s important. But I want my fans to hear so many different sides of me, and there’s so many things I want to try,” Eldredge notes. “There’s so many things I am doing on this record that people haven’t got to hear that side of me yet.”
