“Wake up and breathe in deeper than yesterday. Take on the morning like your soul’s been remade. Roll down the windows, let your cares fly away. Good things are yours to claim, you don’t have to wait,” he reminds us on the “Good Vibes Only” song.
The vibrant track brings everything to life in stunning technicolor, inspiring listeners to dream, to hope, and to dance. The official lyric video transports fans to the West Coast with a triple-shot of blue skies, sunshine, and palm trees, guaranteed to instantly boost a bad mood. The seamless combination of horns and Gokey’s soulful voice makes “New Day” the perfect anthem for 2021, as he encourages fans that a little perspective goes a long way.
“No matter what this year brings, we can know that the old has gone away, new mercies are rising, the future is bright, and there is HOPE!” he wrote on social media as the calendar flipped. “I can’t think of a better time for the message of this song, which is why I’m so excited to be releasing a new version to radio.”
Gokey teases that there’s a lot of “new” stuff on the horizon for him this year. On Instagram, he encouraged fans to “put 2020 in the past—where it belongs,” while also sharing this inspirational quote that corresponds perfectly with the message behind “New Day”: “Tomorrow is the first blank page in a 365 page book. Make it a bestseller!”
