Invisible By Hunter Hayes Discusses Bullying
"Invisible" is the first single Hunter recorded for his upcoming album, which will be out this May! The song is about issues very close to Hunter, including the desire to fit in, dealing with bullying and accepting who you are.
The song begins…
"Crowded hallways are the loneliest places
For outcasts and rebels
Or anyone who just dares to be different
And you've been trying for so long
To find out where your place is"
Hunter is a self-professed music geek, but he didn't always embrace that side of himself. He was bullied when he was younger, but eventually realized the importance of accepting himself.
"It's about that feeling of disappearing among the crowd, not having a place to fit it, being different," he told radio.com.
Hunter cowrote the song with Bonnie Baker and Katrina Elam because the trio felt it was important to let others know they should be themselves, and that life gets better if you stick with it.
