The wait is over – Morgan Wallen has finally released the studio recording of his highly anticipated song “Lies, Lies, Lies.” 

Fans first got a glimpse of the tune, written by Jessie Jo Dillon, Josh Miller, Daniel Ross, and Chris Tompkins, and produced by Joey Moi, with the release of his Abbey Road Sessions digital series earlier this year. The session was recorded at London’s iconic Studio Two in Abbey Road Studios in December 2023, following Wallen’s sold-out show at The O2. Released on March 3, 2024, this digital release marked the one-year anniversary of Wallen’s record-breaking third studio album, One Thing At A Time.”

Now, Wallen has released “Lies, Lies, Lies” following his return to London for his headlining BST Hyde Park debut, which took place on July 4.

Already a fan-favorite and staple in Wallen’s live show, “Lies, Lies, Lies” showcases a softer side of the East Tennessee native. Throughout the lyrics, he admits to struggling to move on from a breakup. While he tries to convince himself that he no longer thinks of his ex and that he’s no longer attempting to drink away her memory, he ultimately admits that he’s in denial and that everything he tries to make himself believe are “Lies, Lies, Lies.”  

On the chorus, he acknowledges the lies he tells to himself and others about moving on. 

“Lies, lies, lies/ Look into my eyes, eyes, eyes/ I’m still a fool for you/ Nothing I wouldn’t do for you/ Lies, lies, lies/ Girl, I’m on a downhill dive/ Habits and hard heartbreaks are hard to break/ So I just tell the same old lies, lies, lies/ Yeah, baby I can try, try, try,” he sings. 

It’s clear why this track has already resonated with fans as it’s extremely relatable for those who have struggled to move on from a breakup and experienced the complexities of love and regret.

While Morgan Wallen didn’t have a hand in writing the song, his emotional connection to the lyrics is evident as he has delivers one of his best vocal performances to date through this track.

Fans are already raving over Wallen’s vocal performance, with many declaring that this version is even better than the one included in the previously released Abbey Road Sessions. 

“The notes he hits in this official version… wow Thought he couldn’t top the abbey road session of this song. I was wrong,” one YouTube user wrote, while another shared, “Oh wow, I honestly didn’t expect this to sound better than the abbey road sessions version, but it is.”

After wrapping his headline BST Hyde Park performing, Wallen will head back to the United States for two consecutive nights in Tampa, Florida on July 11 and 12, continuing the tour until August 9 when he concludes with two nights in Las Vegas.

Afterward, he will launch into a series of shows overseas in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and other countries.

A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold to his live performances goes to The Morgan Wallen Foundation (MWF), dedicated to ensuring all children have opportunities to flourish, play, and express themselves through sports and music. In celebration of his Hyde Park debut, MWF has allocated $20,000 to support the London Youth Choirs (LYC). LYC aims to enhance access to music and singing for underprivileged youth, with Wallen’s donation helping them discover their musical talents and thrive.
