Hear Mickey Guyton’s New Single, ‘Nice Things’
Mickey Guyton has released a new single, "Nice Things." Readers can press play above to hear it.
"Nice Things" touches on heartbreak with a simple, acoustic musical track behind Guyton's lyrics, which she co-wrote with Liz Rose and Stephanie Chapman. The song gets straight into its subject matter from the opening line, with Guyton singing, "I am priceless, don't you know? / But you broke me even so / Oh, shiny gold and diamond rings / Your mama always said you can't have nice things."
Guyton hasn't shared the meaning of or story behind "Nice Things," but she says in a statement that the track is very personal, though that doesn't necessarily set it apart from other songs she's released.
"It's one of my favorite songs that I've ever been a part of," she says. "For us artists, especially when we're starting out, we don't always talk about how scary releasing new music can be. It's literally like tearing a page out of your diary or someone reading an iMessage conversation between you and your best friend. I get nervous before EVERY. SINGLE. RELEASE."
"Nice Things" follows Guyton's release of "Heartbreak Song" earlier this year. Neither track appears on the singer's self-titled 2015 EP, but Guyton has been tight-lipped about when her next album release will be. In the meantime, "Nice Things" is available for download here.
