It’s currently available for purchase here.
“This song is a genre crossing collaboration from two different worlds between myself and Felix Jaehn and that’s the beauty in mixing it up and making something so unique as Can’t Go Home. Adding one of the best vocalists in the world Adam Lambert on it just brings this special song to a whole new level. Super excited about sharing this with the world!”
