Noah Kahan’s new album, Stick Season (Forever) is the last of his “Stick Season” collection.

His audience has been waiting for the release after he posted a teaser about his song “Forever” earlier this year. “Forever” is a heartfelt song that brings in the themes of love and commitment with lyrics like, “I might loosen my grip / But I won’t ever let her go.” His love songs are mostly about his girlfriend, Brenna Nolan.

Kahan brings in other artists who make an impact on the album. He collaborates with Gregory Ivan Isakov on the song “Paul Revere,” which combines Isakov’s slow and soft tone with Kahan’s more upbeat and faster sound. 

But his duet with Brandi Carlile on “Stick Season” is most surprising, because the original version of the song was released back in 2022. 

Kahan adds an extended version of the song “The View Between Villages,” but it is disappointing. The meaning of the song is still there, but the ending is unexpected and unnecessary. 

Overall, the duets on his new album are what makes it worth listening to. The other artists he brings in create a newer atmosphere for Kahan’s listeners. More songs like these should be on his next album.
