The Band Perry released their new single, “Comeback Kid,” the first from their new label, Mercury Records Nashville, on Monday. The band kicked off their “Comeback Day” beginning at midnight with the start of their 24-hour live stream, as well as many other events to honor the day. The trio did interviews, as well as a press conference and performance to talk about their new single and to present a check for $25,000 to the Teen Cancer America organization from their recent Family Feud win.
The song, which the three co-wrote together, tells the band’s story from the past year, documenting turmoil, disappointment, struggles and finally joy. “‘Comeback Kid’ is probably the most intensely personal lyric that we’ve ever written,” says The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry. “We love language we love visuals and poetry hence all of the imagination that went into writing ‘If I Die Young’ but it was really important to us on ‘Comeback Kid’ that we told the real life narrative of everything that we’ve been thinking and feeling over the past year. I mean it’s no secret to anybody that we’ve gone through an amazing transformation of one that ended in such a bright and beautiful place but it had its moment along the way of real and true struggle.”
