Benny Blanco and Gracie Abrams have teamed up for a brand-new song, “Unlearn.”
Set to appear on Blanco’s album Friends Keep Secrets 2, the sequel to 2018’s Friends Keep Secrets, “Unlearn” is a hushed break-up ballad about learning to let someone you love go.
“’Cause if I’m gonna learn how to love you / I need to unlearn how to love too / Need to unlearn how to run when it feels right / Oh my God, I’m tryin’,” Abrams laments over warm synths.
“Benny has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. There is no one more generous with their time or attention, and in a really dark year, Benny has brought so much light,” Abrams wrote on Instagram. “Working with him is surreal but having him as a friend is an even greater honor. Thank you Benny for knowing how to get to the core of a feeling.”
In the accompanying music video, a dejected Abrams eats a pint of ice cream alone before Blanco joins the singer to give her a comforting hug. Watch the video for “Unlearn” here:
