Courtney Hadwin Releases New Ballad ‘Call Me Back’

Early Friday morning, Hadwin posted a video on social media in which she said it was 5 a.m. in the UK. She wanted to share that her new song “Call Me Back” was available for fans to stream. As she said, “This song means so much to me. And I’m so glad it’s finally out to share with you guys.”

“Call Me Back” is a piano-backed ballad in which Hadwin shows off incredible emotion in her voice as she expresses her desire to speak to someone she used to be close with. On one of the verses, she sings, “I’m never, ever gonna lose your number / So I remember what it’s like to hear your voice.”

Hadwin’s fans shared their love for the new track on Instagram, with one commenter writing, “Playing it over and over this morning. Touches me in so many ways. Well done.” Another user wrote that the song has “hauntingly sad lyrics.”


Hadwin Has Been Releasing Original Music

Hadwin auditioned for America’s Got Talent when she was 13 years old, earning a Golden Buzzer from judge Howie Mandel for her rock ‘n’ roll performance of “Hard to Handle” by Otis Redding. She ended up making it all the way to the Finals.

Since her time on AGT, Hadwin has released several cover songs from artists such as Harry Styles and the Jonas Brothers. This year, she started sharing her original music with fans. In February, she premiered her debut original single, “Breakable.”

The 19-year-old singer followed that up with “That Girl Don’t Live Here” in April. Now she’s added “Call Me Back” to her growing list of original singles. What do you think of the new song? Let us know in the comments below.
