Days before their new album, Bigger, is set to be released on June 8, Sugarland is sharing a powerful new song called “Tuesday’s Broken,” from their upcoming album.
The song, written by Jennifer and Kristian, has the duo singing about a tough issue we find all too common today— the rise of school shootings across the country. Asking the question, “where does it hurt?,” Sugarland brings awareness to the need for help amongst these young children. Almost begging, you can feel it in Jennifer’s gut-wrenching vocals, for us to do something before it’s too late.
“There are mysteries down where the blood meets the bone / The loneliness there, wouldn’t leave him alone / But what if we try to reach him with words / What if we looked in his eyes and asked “where does it hurt?” / Would he find all he was worth? / Monday was hoping / But Tuesday’s broken”, Jennifer sings in the chorus.
“What if we asked each other, where does it hurt… What further pain could we avoid?,” the duo asked in an Instagram post sharing the new tune.
Well, what if?
