Eldredge "Want That Back"

Friday, January 14, 2022 – Brett Eldredge kicked off the new year by releasing "Want That Back" and a video for the song premiering today.

Co-written with Scooter Carusoe, the lyrics harken back to a simpler, more care-free life. The song is not on any Eldredge album.

"I woke up at 3:33 one night and was feeling the weight of everything going on in the world," said Eldredge. "From the pandemic to the hate and the violence - all these different things made me crave the pure and simple parts of life that I miss. I was looking for comfort in these moments that I feel bring purpose into my life. It was just such a powerful feeling that overtook me, and I couldn't go back to sleep until I wrote the whole chorus.

"Want That Back" follows the surprise Christmas Eve release of "Holy Water."

"To me, 'Holy Water' represents the cleansing of the spirit," Eldredge said. "You can find it in ways by recognizing the love for yourself, for being there for yourself and protecting that inner child. This is a huge power that we all have, and it exists deep down in our hearts. You can also find it through someone who is there for you through every up and down through the walk of life. They are your holy water. Whatever your beliefs are, you can go to a spiritual place - and hopefully this song can take you there. Recording this was incredibly vulnerable for me, and the production from Dave Cobb is fantastic."

Eldredge recently released his brand-new holiday album, "Mr. Christmas," which followed his debut Christmas album, "Glow." In 2016, the project inspired a single live show in Nashville, which has now grown into the Glow LIVE holiday tour.

Much of it is set in Chicago, with Eldredge walking city streets and noticing the various tunes being played on radio stations within earshot. And wouldn't you know it, every one of them reminds him of his recent breakup! Such is the case with many relationships – whether good or bad – as love songs can be so doggone relatable. It's almost like attending a Sunday morning sermon where ...
CD review - Sunday Drive When an artist achieves the kind of commercial success that Brett Eldredge has, there seems to inevitably be an album that is all about the songwriting. Having described his 2017 self-titled album as his "most honest collection of songs," he doubles down on the sincerity factor and bills "Sunday Drive" as his "most deeply personal to date." The distinction is a fine line, but it seems to be in the deliberateness of the preparation. Eldredge embarked on a voyage of ...
Coming off a string of six consecutive number one hits from his first two albums, "("Bring You Back" and "Illinois"), Brett Eldredge had a choice; take deliberate aim at the chart summit or follow his heart. He opted for the latter and delivers a thread of love and love lost songs. He self-titled his fourth album saying it was his most honest collection of songs to date. The Illinois native is known for doing death-defying stunts when his songs hit the top of ...
