Noah Kahan has confirmed the latest song to be revamped into a duet is ‘Call Your Mom’, which will feature a special guest appearance from US singer-songwriter, Lizzy McAlpine. Excitingly, the collaboration will drop this Friday, September 15.
‘Call Your Mom’ is one of the many stand-outs from Kahan's 2023 deluxe project, Stick Season (We'll All Be Here Forever), which was released in June, and served as an expanded version of the Vermont native's acclaimed 2022 album.
The unveiling of this new Lizzy McAlpine collaboration comes after Noah Kahan teased a joint song earlier in the week. Kahan shared a video snippet across his socials accompanied by the caption, “the most special voice on a song that means a whole lot to me”.
Given the introspective bedroom-pop sound Lizzy McAlpine has become known for, it'll be fascinating to hear how ‘Call Your Mom’ takes on a new feel when McAlpine and Kahan's vocals combine.
‘Call Your Mom’ finds the ‘Dial Drunk’ songsmith documenting a friendship with someone struggling from severe mental health issues, as Noah Kahan pleads with them to find a reason to keep going as they seemingly tussle with suicidal thoughts.
It's become a staple in Kahan's setlist, but he took to Twitter this summer to explain that it's always a tough one to take on during his shows due to the intense emotions that underpin it, “For those asking about ‘Call Your Mom’ live just know that it is difficult for me to perform that one live every night. I’m hoping I learn to perform it with more composure but for now it’s very much a work in progress”.
This new version of ‘Call Your Mom’ follows the release of a reimagined rendition of ‘Dial Drunk’ featuring Post Malone, which has since blossomed into one of Kahan's most celebrated tracks to date.
