Good As New

Album: Set You Free (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the closing track of Set You Free, the ninth studio album by Gary Allan. The Country star sequenced the 12 tracks to take listeners on the journey of a relationship. "When I got the songs in the order I liked I realized what I had done was create a story line so that it played like a breakup," he explained to The Boot. "The first song is 'Tough Goodbye,' and then I went through all the emotions of a breakup, all way to the healing song, 'Good as New.' So the album covers the gamut of a breakup and the first stages of healing."
