Johnny Stimson Premieres New Song “Hard to Say Goodbye”
- Last month, American singer-songwriter Johnny Stimson released his first single of 2020 entitled “Hallelujah”.
Following up the song, he has unveiled a new single “Hard to Say Goodbye”. The song was premiered exclusively on Billboard.
The track features emotive vocals and delicate electronic soundscapes. “i wrote this song is about being homesick before you even leave home. it’s something i feel often since i have been traveling so much. it’s about noticing every bit of perfection on the way out the door and hoping everything will be the same when you get back,” Johnny Stimson wrote of the song on social media.“ this was one of those songs where one line was stuck in my head for a while, then one day the whole song just spilled out of me. i spent a big part of last summer in LA and was really missing bethany at home. i kept hearing these little chords and melody “you make it hard to say goodbye…i die a little every time,” in my head and it became the silent soundtrack to my summer. a few months later i was working in new york and the verses just poured out in the middle of the night. i wrote exactly about the scene i left back home a few days before.”
