Ruminating on the song, Partridge says, “This is a song I wrote about a post-high school, summer-long relationship I had that went deep quickly and ended about as fast. It’s about that kind of love that really only happens in your youth. People identify with it. Folks find ways to tell me their ‘young love’ stories. I tried to capture what it was like to be a kid losing his love to life… growing up, and going different directions.”

Partridge will tour the Southeast and Midwest extensively this spring prior to heading back to the U.K. and Netherlands in June and July of 2023.  His U.S. tour dates are as follows with all dates subject to change.
