Kenny Chesney has released another song frim his upcoming album Song for the Saints.

Written by Travis Meadows and Liz Rose and featuring background vocals from “Come to Jesus” singer Mindy Smith, the quiet tune also rings with gut-string guitar lines courtesy of perennial CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally. It’s all about finding positivity and inner strength in the face of adversity, and Chesney says the song’s philosophical theme perfectly captures the emotion of the months following Hurricane Irma, which devastated the U.S. and British Virgin Islands last fall.

“Now and then I let it go / I ride the waves I can’t control / I’m learning how to build a better boat,” he sings in the song’s chorus.

Kenny Chesney has released another new song from his upcoming album Songs for the Saints: “Pirate Song”

The wistful, breezy tune finds Chesney’s thoughts drifting once more toward the Caribbean, as has been the case on other tracks from his forthcoming album Songs for the Saints, which will benefit Virgin Island communities after they experienced mass destruction from Hurricane Irma in 2017. But this time Chesney allows himself some escapist fantasies, dreaming of señoritas and a taste of rum on his tongue. He skips over the looting and pillaging part, but does make reference to cannon smoke, suggesting there’s still room for some conflict. Things even get a little mystical as Chesney longs to sail a ghost ship, though his desires here remain mostly earthbound.

Pre-order Songs for the Saints at Amazon or iTunes.
