Budding Nashville-via-North Carolina singer-songwriter Caleb Hearn returns with his title track single “We’re Getting Older” off his forthcoming EP We’re Getting Older out September 23rd via Nettwerk. The 22-year-old artist belies his age penning tender tracks at the narrative crossroads of relationships, missed opportunities, and the lessons to be had from young love.
“We’re Getting Older” is about learning and accepting how to move on when both people know that a relationship isn’t meant to last. Sonically, it’s a blend of acoustic and cinematic elements resulting in a song of pure and unadulterated emotions. “‘We’re Getting Older’ is a song that originated from a casual conversation with a friend,” says Caleb Hearn. “When talking and reflecting on my life the last few months, I realized that even with everything going on, time keeps moving and I’m growing up. So, learning to let go and realizing that things tend to get better with time was the main inspiration behind this song.”
The latest effort follows the upbeat, indie-pop effort “Friend Right Now” released in July. Digging deeper into the narrative, Caleb is filled with mixed emotions pertaining to the disappointment of landing in the “friend zone” with that special person. “Friend Right Now” was accompanied by a jovial music video directed by Ruth Chapa.
The We’re Getting Older EP takes the listener through the complex stages of heartbreak–from the moment you realize you’ve lost the person you love to learning how to deal with the pain that follows. “The EP was made over the past six months, with a lot of help from the people who know me best,” says Caleb. “I was going through a lot of change in my own life, dealing with heartbreak, and having to learn how to be happy on my own. It has really acted as therapy for myself. As I was able to finally pour out exactly how I was feeling into the music.”
On September 28th, Caleb will head out with labelmate and fellow songwriter Rosie Darling on a string of West Coast dates, starting in Seattle, WA.

About Caleb Hearn:
Moving in a similar ebb and flow, Caleb Hearn’s songs play out like a story recounted to an old buddy or trusted confidant. The North Carolina-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and artist imparts an intimate level of detail upon his music. Lyrics double as snapshots of unfiltered, candid conversations usually never meant to be shared on this scale—yet he shares them. This approach has cemented him as a rising phenomenon with nearly 100 million streams and 1.4M+ TikTok fans, as well as acclaim from the likes of American Songwriter and many others.
Caleb emerged out of the tiny town (population: 10K) of Mount Airy, NC in 2020. He struck a chord with a devout audience on TikTok through his open-hearted honesty on the likes of the breakout “Always Be.” Meant to pay homage to a friend who tragically passed away, he re-upped the original as “Always Be 2.0” on DSPs, eclipsing 18 million Spotify streams and counting. On its heels, 2021’s “Brown Eyes, Brown Hair” maintained Caleb’s momentum with 20 million Spotify streams and growing. Plus, he collaborated with Jillian Rossi, Haywood, and Sad Alex, to name a few. Simultaneously, he incited the applause of Lyrical Lemonade, Mud, and EARMILK who praised “under the weather” [with Jillian Rossi] as “an important and affecting release.”
Now, Caleb opens up more than ever on his 2022 We’re Getting Older EP via Nettwerk. “In all of these songs, it seems like I’m talking to somebody else,” he affirms. “When I’m recording at home, it’s even more personal. I try to put myself in the headspace of a song before I track it. I even talk out the lyrics, conversating them. To me, this EP feels like I’m singing to another person. It’s extremely honest.” In the lead up to We’re Getting Older, he endured a breakup, traded Mount Airy for Nashville, and stole away to Los Angeles to write. Along this journey, he has creatively and personally evolved and doesn’t intend for either to cease.
