The single, released this month, is Peck’s first new music since the release of his debut album, ‘Pony’, in March last year through Sub Pop. The song’s release came hand-in-hand with a music video, which features the country singer and plenty of flowers.

In his recent cover interview with NME, Peck explained the meaning behind the track.

“Summertime can be a season, a person, or a memory of a happier time that can be difficult to visit. Ultimately this is a song about biding your time and staying hopeful — even if it means missing something or someone,” he said.

In the same interview Peck also confessed his love for Lana Del Rey, likening her style to his own.

“She has a real lonely, melancholy solitary power, which essentially is a cowboy,” he said of the singer. “That’s how I’ve felt my whole life.”
