Trisha Yearwood Releases New Duet With Garth Brooks, ‘What Gave Me Away’ [Listen]
People had the exclusive premiere of the new track on Thursday (Aug. 22). "What Gave Me Away" is a blues-influenced mid-tempo track that talks about the irresistible spark of attraction between two people who have just met, but instantly realize they have a connection that can't be denied.
Organ and acoustic guitars frame the track, which features some tasteful lead guitar fills before Yearwood begins to deliver the lyrics.
"Did you see it when it hit me / Feel it when you kissed me / All night long / Was it when you took me home and I woke up in the morning with your T-shirt on / Baby, did you know all along?" they sing together in the chorus, following and preceding a series of verses that all end in the question, "What gave me away?"
“The song describes such an intimate moment between two people,” Yearwood tells People. “I couldn’t imagine asking anyone else to sing on this song except Garth. He’s my person. He’s my crush.”
Every Girl is Yearwood's first studio album of all-new songs since 2007. Yearwood says she "loved making this record," adding, “I have always chosen songs that feel very personal to me, but I don’t think I ever really admitted that in interviews before!"
Every Girl is set to drop on Aug. 30. Fans have already heard the lead single, "Every Girl in This Town," as well as "Workin' on Whiskey," a duet with Kelly Clarkson. Every Girl will also feature a collaboration with Don Henley. Yearwood is slated to hit the road on her 2019 Every Girl on Tour beginning Oct. 3 in Nashville. The tour runs through Dec. 8 before ending in Naples, Fla.
