Kelsea Ballerini goes back to high school — literally — in her latest music tease, and it’ll make you feel like you’re back there, too!

Since the beginning of this week, Ballerini has been teasing her latest single off her upcoming second album Unapologetically (which drops in two months), called “High School,” and her newest tease gives fans a glimpse at what life was actually like for the singer back then.

“High School” will be Ballerini’s third single off her new album (it comes out tomorrow), and from the sounds of it, she’s taking a serious blast to the past approach with the lyrics, and we are loving the retro, teenage vibes we’re getting.

“But this ain’t high school // midnight,” Ballerini captioned a short video of “High School.” While she didn’t give away too much about the song, the video does show the country singer back at Central High School, where she actually went to school in Knoxville, Tennessee.

In the clip she is rocking an updated letterman’s jacket (complete with sequins) and strutting her stuff on the football field, but that’s not the only preview fans have gotten of this tune. Earlier in the week, the “Peter Pan” singer shared photos from the music video, wearing the same fierce outfit alongside lyrics from the track.

“You can remember but you can’t go back // 9.22,” a photo of her sitting in the stands at the football stadium said. A second image reads, “Why would he want to change when every memory bows to him.”

With all of these lyric teases, and images of Ballerini back at her real high school, fans are even more excited for her new music.

Ballerini’s Unapologetically drops on November 3, 2017, and “High School” debuts on September 22, 2017.
