Carly Pearce took to social media over the weekend to share the demo version of “Heat First,” which she recorded while in quarantine.
Pearce said she sang the piano ballad in one take. The track, which narrates a battle between the head and the heart and the pain that comes with a broken heart, has serene harmonies.
“This is a demo that I sang in one take, in a closet (#quarantine),” Pearce captioned her post. “I wrote it for anyone who’s ever realized that their head and heart don’t always line up.”
“Head couldn’t of told me no different if it tried / Had that all in tunnel vision, didn’t think it through / Yeah I only saw what I wanted to,” Pearce sings.
“Cause when you fall you fall heart first/And when you hit the ground it hurts/Wish there was another way without the crash and burn/That I could learn/But when you fall you fall heart first,” she goes on.
“This is so good,” commented Cassadee Pope. Songwriter Shane McAnally wrote, “Love love LOVE.”
Pearce recently released a new single, “Next Girl.” Her duet with Lee Brice, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” topped the charts earlier this year.
