I first heard this song on Apple Music listening to the new music one Friday a week or two ago while showering and getting ready. I couldn’t quite place who it was, and then slowly, I was like The Band Perry? My guess was confirmed with the throwback to If I Die Young in the middle of the song.
I always enjoyed The Band Perry and wondered why last year’s Live Forever wasn’t a massive crossover summer hit? It would seem they were given a rough go from their previous label in the last year. Now they are the “comeback kids” armed with a new label that wants them to grow. Comeback Kid is the first taste of this new relationship between the bands and their new label.
Comeback Kid is a song all about triumph and getting through tough times in your life. It is about even if you want to just stop trying, you can and will get through the rough time. It hits home with The Band Perry after a horrible 2015, in which, they weren’t sure what would happen with their careers. The song is gonna do great things, and should literally mark their comeback.
Take a listen to Comeback Kid and let me know what you think about it in the comment section.
