Chrissy Metz is giving fans a taste of what’s to come on her forthcoming debut album with the release of a brand new song called “Talking To God.”

Co-written by Nicolette Hayford, Connie Harrington, Jake Mitchell, Ashley McBryde and Aaron Raitiere, the reflective ballad documents a heartfelt conversation between Metz and the man upstairs.

“I was talkin’ to God last night/ About why things happen the way they do/ Yeah, and He shed a little light/ On why I’m goin’ through, what I’m goin’ through/ Everything under the sun/ Why some get it all/ And some people fall out of love/ I was talkin’ to God last night/ Your name came up,” she sings throughout the chorus.

“‘Talking To God’ is a song about those moments when we ask the questions we desperately want the answers to,” shares Metz. “Whether it’s a lost love or why our own lives look much different than the way we had hoped they would. It’s about those personal prayers and conversations we have while listening and learning to surrender and trust in the bigger picture.”

“Talking To God” is Metz’s first release since signing a major record deal with Universal Music Group Nashville’s EMI Records Nashville.

Metz, who is best known for her role in the NBC drama, This Is Us, is expected to release a full-length country album later this year.
