AUSTIN BURKE RELEASES NEW SINGLE, “YOUNG LOVE”
Emerging country singer-songwriter Austin Burke’s new single, “Young Love,” is now available for streaming and download on all major platforms. The anthemic summer jam was penned by four of Nashville's top songwriters - Thomas Rhett, Ashley Gorley, Zach Crowell and Josh Miller. Thomas Rhett also co-produced the track, alongside Brandon Day. In early 2019, Burke signed a publishing deal with Home Team Publishing, a creative partnership amongst Thomas Rhett, Rhett Akins, Virginia Bunetta and Roc Nation. Thomas Rhett personally offered Burke the opportunity to cut "Young Love," and though Burke is accustomed to releasing music he has had a hand in writing, he was ecstatic to collaborate with Thomas Rhett on this project. "Love is a consistent theme in my music, and if there ever was a time for each of us to spread messages of love, it is now," says Burke. "'Young Love' is the first song I've recorded that I didn't write. When Thomas Rhett sent it to me, I immediately knew I had to record it. It's a very nostalgic summer song, and no matter where you are in life, this song is sure to remind you of simpler, happier times. Thomas Rhett and Brandon Day were unbelievable producers, and it was amazing to see this song come to life. I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to record it."
This is the fourth single Burke has released in 2020. "Desert Child," released in February, earned placement on multiple editorial playlists and has amassed nearly one million streams. Burke released an acoustic version of the song in April, followed by "I Grew Up" in mid-May. Burke plans to continue releasing new music in the coming months, and he will be back out on the road touring once it is safe to do so.
