Hear Kenny Chesney’s Sensual New Song ‘Tip of My Tongue’
Kenny Chesney has released the new song “Tip of My Tongue,” his first single since 2018’s Songs for the Saints. The mid-tempo rocker was penned by Chesney with Ross Copperman and pop singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, whose No. 6 Collaborations Project is out today.
Where many of Chesney’s recent songs like “Get Along” have addressed more worldly concerns, “Tip of My Tongue” is a celebration of sensuality. Over a dreamy, percussion-free bed of guitar and synthesizer, Chesney sings of his appreciation for the little details — like the dimples in someone’s back — that make him fall a little more in love with someone. “It’s a long way down to where I wanna go/It’s a long way down to the center of your soul,” he sings. The song builds to a production that splits the difference between sleek, modern pop and Chesney’s bread-and-butter country-rock, complete with a rousing sing-along chorus.
“It’s funny how a figure of speech can lead you to all kinds of places. When the idea fell out, we all just laughed & went, ‘Well, what can we do with that?’” Chesney tweeted this week.
