“I can be a very emotional songwriter and, for some reason, the sad, reflective songs, often come naturally for me,” the “In Case You Didn’t Know” star shared in a statement. “The song is a true story about a situation my now wife and I had many years back – it just describes the feeling of missing someone and seeing everyone else around you in happy relationships. [Producer] Dann Huff has been wanting to cut a new version of it for a while so we thought the timing was right to give it a bit of a new life around this coming New Year.”

For Young, the new year kicks off with his “5 Tour 3 2 1” run of shows. The artist will hit the road for a springtime stint of headlining gigs across the U.S., seeing support from Ashley Cooke and Morgan Evans along the way. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 2 at 10 a.m. local time.
