Country star Zach Bryan drops new single “Something In The Orange”

Born and raised in Oklahoma, a songwriting force by nature, Zach Bryan continues his deep explorations of human emotion with his heartbreaking new single “Something in the Orange,” out today via Warner Records.

Like ‘Highway Boys’ and ‘From Austin’ topping the charts before it, ‘Something in the Orange’ finds Bryan stripping himself bare, wanting to believe there’s a chance of survival for a nearly doomed relationship. . “To you I’m just a man, to me you’re all I am, where the hell am I supposed to go?” Bryan screams, almost broken.

“I poisoned myself again; something in the orange tells me you’ll never come home.” It’s the kind of high-pitched intensity that quickly made him one of country music’s most compelling voices.

There are two versions of “Something in the Orange” – the “Z&E” version was produced and mixed by Eddie Spear recorded at Electric Lady Studio in New York, while the other was produced and mixed by Ryan Hadlock at Bear Creek Studio in Washington State.

The former is vast and lonely, with sparse, booming percussion and overdriven guitar swells in the distance; the latter flourishes, with wide bass strings and a piano wash, like the soft, heavy light of orange that Bryan sees at sunrise. The two versions are linked by a ghostly nostalgia and a serious loneliness that haunts every bar.

The video features fan-shot footage from the crowd and captures the raw, unfiltered emotion of Bryan’s live experience. The song will appear on his long-awaited third album and his first for Warner Records-American Heartbreak, which is slated for release May 20. HERE.

Bryan’s most recent releases – heartfelt “From Austin” and rambling “Highway Boys” – immediately resonated with fans, with the former topping Spotify and Apple Music’s Country charts.

Every new track on American Heartbreak continues to reach a devoted following that keeps growing by the millions via Spotify, TikTok, YouTube and its magnetic live broadcasts. Upon its release, “From Austin” earned the #1 country song on Apple Music, debuted at #4 on Spotify’s Global Country Chart, and made spectacular first-day impressions reaching #38 overall. on Spotify US Top 200 and 63rd song overall. on Apple US.

Empowered by the song’s deeply personal story, it has amassed 487,000 global streams and 445,000 US streams on Spotify, a staggering result for a rookie songwriter. Like the singles that preceded it, “Something in the Orange” finds Bryan diving deep within himself to bring listeners something honest, something real.
