Lauren Alaina has announced her latest EP Getting Over Him with a brand-new song, “Run.”
Over an uptempo beat, Alaina sings about the inevitability of a metaphorical run in life, whether it’s toward something we hoped for or from a painful situation. “Run, living life like it’s a highway and we’re all stuck in drive / Like a preacher on a Sunday always going overtime / Like the muddy water rushing in the river outside of town / Yeah, the clock just keeps on running and we can’t slow down,” she belts on the chorus.
“We are all running. Constantly. Non-Stop. Even in this quarantine we are all still the busiest we’ve ever been. Life just keeps going and going and going in unbelievable paces as we try to race ourselves to the next thing,” the Georgia native said of “Run” in a statement.
“My idea with the song was to refer to examples of all things that run because no matter what your walk of life is, we are all racing to the next thing. We are all trying to get where we are going. We all get our hearts broken. We all have these childhood dreams. We ‘run’ to make it all happen.”
“Run” is the first release off Alaina’s forthcoming EP, Getting Over Him. The six-track project will also feature collabs with Jon Pardi and Lukas Graham.
Prior to this, Alaina released her Getting Good EP, which included the emotional ballad “The Other Side” as well as the empowering title track. Last month, she also shared a duet of “Getting Good” with country icon Trisha Yearwood.
