Lee Brice released a new video for “Hey World,” featuring Season 7 The Voice alum Blessing Offor.
The new tune is the title track to Lee’s upcoming fifth studio album, which will drop on Nov. 20. Lee released the album’s hope-filled title track in May to address the COVID-19 pandemic. “Hey World” was penned by Lee, Dallas Davidson and Adam Wood in late March after the guys found themselves inundated with a negative news cycle regarding the pandemic.
“We wrote this song from an introspective, truthful place and probably what most people are actually feeling right now,” says Lee. “With everything that is happening in the world currently and how fast paced we are as a society in general, sometimes you just want everything to stop—just to appreciate what we do have. People are suffering and it can’t be ignored.”
The upcoming album’s lead single, “One of Them Girls,” is currently No. 4 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Hey World will follow the release of Lee’s 2017 self-titled album, which spawned No. 1 hit, “Rumor,” and Top 20 hit, “Boy.”
“Hey World is just my next step in life,” says Lee. “Where I am, who I am, what I love, and what I feel. From the songs, to the production, to the order they play in, I always have and still do make it my goal to get better and better at what I do. Short of my family, my wife and friends, my music is the deepest part of me. So, I am overjoyed to say that I think I have made my best project to date. I stand by everything I have ever done, but pull from it as well to help me exceed my own expectations. Because of my team, my co-producers, my engineers, my label, I was able to make what I hope will be my most successful album to date.”
