After highlighting the dark side of love in her “I Hope You’re Happy Now” duet with Lee Brice, Carly Pearce is ready for some romantic fun on the newly released “Call Me” — but she’s not gonna do all the work herself.
Dropping the bouncy come-and-get-it anthem today (January 3), “Call Me” marks the fourth track to be revealed from Pearce’s upcoming album number two — and it takes a lighthearted left turn when compared to the serious nature of her previous releases. Written by Little Big Town’s Jimi Westbrook and Phillip Sweet with Emily Shackleton and the album’s producer, busbee, it’s a feel-good jam with an irresistible groove and “sassy” lyrics all about a connection that could be much more than it is. There’s only one thing her prospective beau needs to do.
“For a good time, call me / Whatever you want, that’s all me / Yeah, I could be that somebody / That you’re gonna hold tonight,” goes the temptation-filled chorus.
“Call Me” is part of Pearce’s self titled second album, which comes out February 14 and also includes “I Hope You’re Happy Now” (featuring Lee Brice), “It Won’t Always Be Like This,” “Closer to You,” a duet with new husband Michael Ray and more. Pearce has dedicated the project to busbee, who passed away from cancer in September.
“This record is dedicated to @busbee. The last full record he made & one that I am so very proud of. Thank you for bringing these songs to life. I can’t wait to honor you and hear/see how people connect to what we created,” she shared.
