Noah Kahan is no stranger to successful collaborations, and this summer has been no exception. Over the past few months, he’s graced us with enchanting tunes featuring artists like Post Malone and Lizzie McAlpine. Now he delivers another delightful duet, this time with the talented Kacey Musgraves.
The dynamic duo has come together to breathe new life into “She Calls Me Back,” a beloved fan favorite from Kahan’s 2022 album, Stick Season. In this heartwarming song, two lovers reconnect briefly, finding happiness in the rekindling of their friendship.
As Kahan croons, “Lost for a long time / Two parallel lines / Everything’s alright when she calls me back” in the chorus, he captures the essence of the fleeting joy that comes from their renewed connection.
Kacey Musgraves, in her verse, assures her former love that while their romantic past may be behind them, she still cherishes their occasional conversations, all while establishing necessary boundaries. With lines like “If you think that you could wake me up / Then you don’t know how well I’ll sleep / You love me and I don’t know why / I only call you once a week,” she beautifully encapsulates the complexity of their relationship.
With this updated version of “She Calls Me Back” and his impressive collaborations, Noah Kahan continues to showcase his remarkable versatility and unmatched songwriting prowess. It’s a heartwarming and relatable tale of love, friendship, and the sweet nostalgia of reconnection.
