Sam Hunt Drops New Single, “Breaking Up Was Easy in the ’90s” [Listen]

Sam Hunt will try to score his eighth No. 1 single with the release of “Breaking Up Was Easy in the ’90s.”

Penned by Sam, Chris LaCorte, Zach Crowell, Josh Osborne and Ernest K. Smith, “Breaking Up Was Easy in the ’90s” will impact country radio on Oct. 12. The tune is featured on Sam’s No. 1 sophomore album, Southside, which was released in April 2020.

The new breakup song has Sam yearning for the days before smartphones and social media, as he croons the chorus: “I’m sick of sitting at the house / Dying on my phone / Wishin’ I was somewhere I could be alone / Try to let you go but somethin’ always reminds me / I bet breaking up was easy in the ’90s.”
