Lil Nas X has shared his brand new single, “SUN GOES DOWN.”

Clocking in at under three minutes, the track features production from Roy Lenzo, Omer Fedi and Take a Daytrip and shows the much calmer side of Lil Nas X. It begins with the artist softly singing over muffled guitar, and he moves into the first verse and continues to melodically touch on his own insecurities and self-forgiveness, utilizing the song as a way to reach out to his listeners who are in the same position he once was.

“in the “SUN GOES DOWN” video i go back in time to visit a younger version self who’s struggling inside, hating himself, & doesn’t want to live anymore. i try my best to uplift him,” Lil Nas X wrote on Twitter of the self-directed visual. “can’t wait to share this song and video with you guys on friday. this one is really special to me.”

The new single arrives almost two months after “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name),” which went platinum less than a month after its release.
