Up-and-coming country artist Alyssa Trahan has unveiled a brand new song, “We Used To Be Happy,” and it is premiering exclusively here on Sounds Like Nashville.
The up-tempo breakup tune finds Trahan recalling the blissful days of a past relationship as she struggles to move on from the beautiful what-was. It was written by the rising singer-songwriter herself, alongside Jonathan Guzman, Adam Drexler and David Cole.
“We used to be happy, we drove the world insane / We used to be crazy, but in the greatest way / Baby what happened cause it isn’t the same / We used to be happy / We used to be happy,” the East Rochester, New York native reminisces in the chorus over a breezy production.
“This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written and recorded,” Trahan tells Sounds Like Nashville. “When I got the idea, I really wanted it to be up-tempo and passionate, just like a relationship is in the early days when everything is magical and perfect until life gets in the way. I love the imagery we put in the lyrics and the production is so fun.”
“I hope people blast this song with the windows down and jam out when they hear it!” she adds.
Trahan is also coupling this release with a very exciting announcement. The multi-talented artist is releasing her new album, Baby Blues And Stilettos, on March 5. Fans can pre-order the forthcoming record HERE and receive “We Used To Be Happy” as an instant grat track.
