Thomas Rhett has shared a lyric video for his new single “Slow Down Summer,” the first track off Rhett’s forthcoming sixth studio album titled “Where We Started,” which will be released early next year.

Rhett says of the new song, “I wrote this song from the point of view of two people who are in love during senior year of high school. I envisioned them headed off to different schools and they’re starting to understand that the moment the weather starts to change, they’ve got a 99-percent chance this relationship is not going to work.  I know that myself and a lot of people have been there before, wishing the fireworks stage doesn’t have to end.”
