Morgan Wallen’s sneak peek of The Double Album spiced up my country playlist 

As someone who used to be inattentive to the country genre, I am immensely appreciative that I took notice of how it changed my mood. It made me feel carefree but undisturbed at the same time. 

While hopping around from artists like Blake Shelton to Mitchell Tenpenny to Jason Aldean, I have registered that, overtime, Morgan Wallen is without a doubt my favorite musician. 

While Wallen’s biggest album I Know Me held fourteen tracks and was a big success in 2018, he then came out with two new singles, “7 Summers” and “More Than My Hometown,” in 2020. Hearing how stupendous these singles were only made my expectations higher for his next album, The Double Album.   

The release of these new three songs from the album makes me more thrilled about what the other tracks will feature next year in early January.

Knowing that Wallen’s habitual pieces bear onto the relaxed side, they tend to be buoyant and exuberant as well.”

One of the songs from the album, “Somebody’s Problem,” starts with a peaceful guitar tempo that progresses into a swift beat but stays constant, and, like most country songs, the lyrics focus on a girl that he is willing to love despite the problems she will bring. Wallen voices this by vocalizing, “I’d love to drown in them heartbreaker blue eyes.” Throughout the song, Wallen also indicates that no matter what issues this unidentified girl may go through, he will still set his heart on her to be his problem in the most intimate way. 

Knowing that Wallen’s habitual pieces bear onto the relaxed side, they tend to be buoyant and exuberant as well; his songs are unpredictable.

Although the next song “Still Goin’ Down” has an utterly different perception of love, Wallen still pursues an unhurried beat while giving off a serene experience. In the first twenty seconds, I felt like I was in a field of flowers; it filled me with a sense of freedom. As expected, “Still Goin Down” continued to pertain to love, yet that emotion was not designed for someone but rather something like his hometown. Wallen states that he is in fact “from a small town, southern drawl crowd” and under no circumstance is he fearful to show his loyalty towards his country roots.

As I approached the final song, I was covertly hoping that it would be bright and hold vitality as Wallen’s previous songs had done in the past. 

Between these two restful songs, “Somebody’s Problem,” and “Still Goin Down,” I can say that the next did not disappoint and managed to reach my standards.

The final track, “Livin’ The Dream,” did a stunning job at turning my mood from mellow to adventurous and smiley. This piece starts with a snappy tempo that carries on continuously. The lyrics of this song exhibit show acknowledgment of the battles creators might encounter. I cannot imagine a better song to exemplify this subject matter. Throughout this piece, Wallen voices that living the dream is not always what it is made out to be by vocalizing the repeated line of “livin’ the drеam is killin’ me, killin’ me, killin’ me.”

As the song repeats itself and keeps on track with the same upbeat tempo, Wallen also reveals another side of reality that everyone can relate tohow people see us versus how we see ourselves. Without a doubt, Wallen does a marvelous job at signifying this by articulating that he has “met a thousand people who think I got a thousand friends,” saying that he has lost himself and how the pictures we see on social media are not always what we make them out to be. 

He creates a genuine look into his life and feelings through these songs. Wallen is one that does not refrain from showing who he is, and he does a superior job illustrating this in his sneak peek.

Wallen is not one to put out as many albums as other artists; however, I can say that I have high expectations for the rest of the songs on The Double Album that will soon be released, and I have no doubt that it will fail to impress.
