Kiss Me Like a Stranger

Album: Life Changes (2017)


  • Thomas Rhett wrote this bedroom jam with Dave Barnes and Jordan Reynolds about bringing the heat back to an existing relationship. "I feel like that song's gonna result in a population boom," he laughed during a iHeart release party. "If anyone's trying to get lucky, just put that song on."
  • Rhett recalled during a media listening event. "From the first time we started writing this song, it was just like, 'I don't know what to call it, but it's my take on a Marvin Gaye-meets-Barry Manilow kind of thing.' I love that soul, R&B feel in music that just - when it comes on, whether you're on a boat or driving in a car... it just feels good, and I think I'm in the business of making people try to feel good."
