Colbie Caillat is readying her new country project, Along the Way, for a Sept. 22 release.
Produced by Jamie Kenney, the 13-track collection features current single “Worth It” as well as new song “Pretend,” out today. “Pretend” was written by Caillat alongside Liz Rose and AJ Pruis. A common theme found throughout the project, “Pretend” laments on the ending of a past relationship, but aims to focus on the happy times rather than succumbing to feelings of sadness and regret.
“I wrote ‘Pretend’ when I was reminiscing the good parts of my last relationship and wanting to pretend we were back together so I could re-live and feel those good times we shared again,” says Caillat. “Although the album is full of breakup songs, I felt it was important to share the optimism I still feel about the future and the respect I have for what I’ve experienced in the past.”
“Pretend” co-writers Rose and Pruis also penned Caillat’s current hit single “Worth It” which has amassed over 5 million streams since its release. The lyrical trio wrote seven of the 13 songs on the album, and other contributors include Alysa Vanderheym, Jordan Shellhart, Brett James, Jason Reeves and Kenny Edmonds.
Caillat will perform some of the new tracks for fans tomorrow, June 10, at Spotify House during CMA Fest.
