Hawaiian-born surfer and songwriter Jack Johnson will release his upcoming album, From Here to Now to You, September 17. It will feature his new single “I Got You,” which Johnson premiered on his official site over the weekend. Listen below.

On the new track, Johnson sings about his devotion to his wife. From songs penned about his children to his early days as a member of a punk band, Johnson has proven that personal songs are his strong suit. But occasionally he pens lyrics that cut too deep. Johnson told Rolling Stone, that it’s “been a balance I’ve had to find through the whole process of sharing these songs.”

He admitted he has a tough time listening back to parts his 2010 album To The Sea because he’s reminded of his father, who died of cancer in 2009. Johnson, who felt like his father’s son on the last album, feels “like a dad” on the new record. When it comes to family, he notes that everything else is “secondary.”
