After announcing a brand new album set for March 24, Luke Combs has teased an unreleased song on his socials, ‘Love You Anyway’. Fans will be excited to see the ballad treading similar territory to previous hits such as ‘Going, Going, Gone’, ‘The Other Guy’ and ‘Six Feet Apart’.
The track showcases Luke's trademark ability to transform a simple, age-old concept into an irresistible heartbreak anthem.
Sat in front of his bandmates, Luke delivers the song from the stage of a concert venue, and was therefore likely recorded in 2022 during his The Middle of Somewhere tour with Lainey Wilson and Jordan Davis.
He weaves in an array of touching imagery about the heart wanting what it wants, despite it leading, in this case, to a world of hurt (“There's just some things that leave a man no choice/Like a compass needle needing its true North”).
Luke then goes on to deliver the beautifully bittersweet titular lyric, “Even if I knew the day we met you'd be the reason this heart breaks/Oh I'd love you anyway”.
The ‘Love You Anyway’ snippet comes shortly after Luke Combs’ new album announcement, which he accompanied with the revelation that a song from the project would be dropping on January 27. Could the new single be ‘Love You Anyway’? The timing of Luke's latest teaser definitely feels pertinent, to say the least.
Even if it doesn't turn out to be the lead single, fans will be expecting ‘Love You Anyway’ to feature on the new record, alongside other songs the North Carolina songsmith has teased in recent months, such as ‘Tattoo On A Sunburn’, ‘Joe’, ‘Five Leaf Clover’ and more.
As we outlined in 2022, we suspect that Luke's new project will be a double-album named Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old, continuing on from last year's hit record, Growin’ Up.
