X Ambassadors release a new single entitled Hey Child. Available for download and streaming on your favorite platforms, Hey Child is second track from its new album (due out June 14), a soaring and deeply personal tune titled “Hey Child.”
The band is currently gearing up for this next chapter, which Harris says required three different album iterations — and two versions left on the cutting room floor — for the band to define alongside Grammy-nominated producer Ricky Reed (Twenty One Pilots, Halsey).
Talking about the song, Hey Child the band’s frontman Sam Harris says;
It started with a writing session with myself and a producer named Andrew Wells, and I had an idea for this chorus. I wrote these different verses to it that were bland and didn’t really say anything, but I felt the song had a good vibe to it and I loved the chorus so I brought it to Ricky Reed, who executive produced our new record, and he said, “This is cool but I don’t really know what you’re talking about.”
So we decided to turn it into a love letter to one of my best friends growing up who I haven’t spoken to in a very long time — we’d kind of become estranged. I wanted to write it to him and the message of the song is pretty clear: if you’re going through a dark time, don’t worry, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, everything is going to be all right.
