Aaron Carter Drops New Single, Reflects On Troubled Year

The former child star is officially making his comeback.

Aaron Carter released his new single, "(Don't) Say Goodbye," at midnight on Friday, Dec. 8, 2017. It's the first song off of his upcoming album, LøVë, which is the singer's first LP since 2002's Another Earthquake. It will drop sometime in February 2018.

The 30-year-old musician took to social media on Thursday, Dec. 7 to tease the song, after initially announcing its release earlier this week. "I'm excited about my new release #dontsaygoodbye without all the negative bullsh*t, it feels good to be in the place that I am today," he tweetedadding, "Thank u to everyone who supports me and my music and actually listens I have a message it's love hard love love that I can't live without."

"For me, it's all about the music. And if there is one lesson I've learned this year, it is to not dwell on the past, but to live for the future and I am so excited for what the new year will bring my musical career and my life," Carter said in a statement (via Entertainment Tonight). "I am so grateful to my fans and look forward to sharing this deeply personal music which, came from the inner core of my heart and soul."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the "Fool's Gold" singer found his way back into the spotlight during a rather difficult 2017. Carter was arrested for an alleged DUI and marijuana possession in July, only months after his father passed away. Since then, he publicly feuded with Backstreet Boy brother Nickcame out as bisexualbroke up with his girlfriendtotaled his car in a severe accident, and was visited by police at home after an alleged suicide threat

Thankfully, the "Sooner or Later" singer seems to be in a much better and healthier place these days. He debuted his jaw-dropping transformation in November, having gaining 45 lbs. since entering rehab in September, following an emotional appearance on The Doctors.
