PREMIERE: Sam Hale Shares Empowering New Track, "Can’t Take It"
Iranian-American songwriter Sam Hale has released his emotionally charged new single, “Can’t Take It” today! The empowering track, which comes from Hale’s upcoming EP, Somewhere Between Love & War finds him pulling away from a toxic relationship in an attempt to better himself. Listen to it now below.
Of the song, Hale says, “We’ve probably all been in a relationship that was toxic for us, or held us back in some way, shape or form. ‘Can’t Take It’ was written rather quickly at a time where I was able to take a step back from the relationship and look at things with an objective eye. It’s hard to be objective when your heart is invested in someone. This song was a great reminder to myself of what needed to be done...”
With “Can’t Take It” out now, fans can look forward to more new music from Sam Hale soon. “This EP, ‘Somewhere Between Love &; War’, is special to me in so many ways,” he expresses, “It marked the beginning of a new chapter, maybe even a start of a new book. In October of 2017, I packed my bags and moved to Nashville from Los Angeles to start my new journey. Quickly thereafter, I connected with Sam Kassirer who produced Josh Ritter, David Ramirez and many other influential artists. After chatting back and forth for 5 months, we jumped in the studio and began tracking this EP.”
