The new single from artist/songwriter Stephen Stanley, 'Note To Self,' is out now courtesy of Capitol CMG. Stanley co-wrote the song with Paul Duncan, Mitch Parks, and GRAMMY Award-winning Tedd T, who also produced the song. A video is also out today, which shares video footage from Stephen Stanley's childhood. Check out the video below.
"I wrote this song as a letter of advice to my younger self, but I wanted it to be written in a way that could speak to me as a child, me a year ago, a month ago, or even yesterday," Stanley shares. "The lessons are all still the same - hold on to faith, family, and love, and everything will be ok."
"Hey there lonely boy
Don’t you worry about the future
Lord knows you’re gonna get there
Just keep taking it day by day
There’s gonna be some heartbreak
You’re gonna make some big mistakes
But God’s still got you even when it don’t feel that way
God’s still got you, so you’re gonna be ok"
- lyrics from "Note To Self"
Leading up to today's release, a portion of "Note To Self" dropped on TikTok last week for his 800,000+ followers to experience the song and its message early. Additionally, April is Mental Health Awareness Month and Stanley wants the song's powerful message to offer self-reflection and encouragement for those wrestling with mental health issues.
