Morgan Wallen has released three new songs from his upcoming double album, Dangerous, due out on January 8, 2021. "Somebody's Problem," "Still Goin' Down" and "Livin' The Dream" all officially dropped on Friday (November 20).
"Livin' The Dream," co-written by Wallen alongside Ben Burgess, Jacob Durrett and Michael Hardy, is his most honest song to date. The track finds Wallen singing about the darker side to fame, recognizing that being in the spotlight isn't all that it's cracked up to be.
"I look like a rockstar, in and out of cop cars / Livin’ out a suitcase, trashin’ hotel bars / If I see the sunrise, it’s ’cause I stayed up all night / Drinkin’ ’cause I need to, damn it, what a good life / Judgin’ by my long hair, you might think I don’t care / Sittin’ here, sippin’ and bitchin’ about a spot where / People would kill to bе, kill to be, kill to be / But y’all, it ain’t as good as it seems, this livin’ the drеam is / Killin’ me, killin’ me, killin’ me/ It’s killin’ me, killin’ me, killin’ me," he sings on the chorus.
Along with "Livin' The Dream," Wallen also shared a new small-town anthem, "Still Goin' Down." The track, also co-written by Wallen and Hardy with Ryan Vojtesak, is all about what goes down on the weekends in small towns across the country.
The third song Wallen released, "Somebody's Problem" is an acoustic ballad about falling for a girl "you can't stand to lose." The track was also co-written by Wallen alongside Rodney Clawson, Durrett, Ernest and Keith Smith.
Wallen's 30-track double album will follow up his 2018 debut album, If I Know Me. Fans can pre-order the album now ahead of the official release date, January 8, 2021. See a full track listing below.
