A new song and video from Chris Young is here! The country music hitmaker just released “Right Now,” a song about rekindling lost love. “Right Now” is from Young’s forthcoming new album, Young Love & Saturday Nights, out on March 22.
“Right Now,” along with the record’s title track, is part of a massive new project, Young’s first since Famous Friends came out in 2021.
“My ninth studio album, 18 tracks, my largest album to date,” Young said when announcing the record. “Young Love & Saturday Nights is yours on March 22nd. The album pre-save will be available on Friday, January 12th along with a brand new song called “Right Now.”
Young currently has a Top 40 hit with “Young Love & Saturday Nights,” a song that resonated with him personally as soon as he heard it.
“[It] talks about that whole process of what reminds me of my start playing in bars, and just playing new music for the first time,” Young explained to his record label “Maybe your truck doesn’t always run right, maybe you’re just getting your start. And just that whole idea of, I think everybody’s probably set in a truck before and made out with somebody. And I think just that imagery and that that whole idea of young love and falling in love maybe for the first time is a really, really cool thing to put into the energy of a song like this.
“It’s up-tempo,” he added. “It’s a lot of fun to play and I can’t wait for everybody to hear it and be out there playing it on the road all summer.”
“Young Love & Saturday Nights” was written by Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure and Josh Thompson, with the late rocker David Bowie also cited as a writer,
“‘Young Love & Saturday Nights’ is a song that just kind of fell in my lap, so to speak,” Young said. “We were having some meetings, people were cycling in and out of the Sony building playing songs for the record. Obviously, I write most of my stuff, but not all. You look at the history of my music, you’ll find a lot of songs that have gone No. 1, and been huge hits for me that I didn’t write as well as the ones I did. And this is one that I definitely wish I had written. I just fell in love with it from first listen; obviously a summer vibe behind this one.”
Young will also embark on his Young Love & Saturday Nights Tour on April 25 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Find music and tour dates at ChrisYoungCountry.com.
