Dwight Yoakam‘s forthcoming album Second Hand Heart will be available on April 14, and leading up to the release of the album, fans can get a sneak preview of the album’s title track, premiered via Rolling Stone Country.
The track has the country singer telling the story of a woman lamenting of how she wished she never started a relationship. “It’s better off just not to start/ Then to have to watch us fall apart,” he sings.
Yoakam said he originally wrote the song’s opening verse years ago with plans to have it on 2012’s Tree Pears. “I never finished it,” he told Rolling Stone Country. “It wasn’t meant to be a part of that record and now I know why. It’s its own statement, and it led this collection of songs in a way.
