Here's a nice treat for your Friday: New York artist Sam Setton is heading into the weekend with the release of his tasty new single "Gum."

According to the singer, the velvety cut draws inspiration from feelings of first falling in love and how it can be "so amazing but also fleeting," reminiscent of "the burst of flavor when you first chew a piece of gum."

Coming off a recent stint opening for Robert DeLong in New York, Setton has plenty in the works for 2019, including a stash of new music.

Meantime, hear "Gum" below.
