Sam Outlaw returns with For the Rest of Our Lives, his first single since 2019. The country talent mixes things up creatively on the track brining synthesisers, drum machines and guitars into the fold for a joyous country flavoured pop hit. The latest single is written by Sam with Steve Fiore, with Cheyenne Medders stepping in for production duties.
Sam shares: “Once we started recording this one, all the other songs had to ‘rise up’ to meet it. Lyrically, it’s fairly straight forward – a love story about failure, forgiveness and redemption. I wrote the hook, but I couldn’t figure out how to end the chorus – that is, until a talented songwriter named Steven Fiore (Young Mister) showed up at my door. I sang him the chorus, and the first thing out of his mouth was the resolution line, ‘we can drive each other crazy.’ It was a beautiful moment, and I’ll never forget it.”
Like many, we are eagerly awaiting a new studio album from Sam, with his most recent being 2017’s Tenderheart. If the quality remains as high as this then we are in for a treat.
