Colbie Caillat Counts Her Blessings on 'Goldmine': Exclusive Song Premiere

Colbie Caillat

Colbie Caillat is in love and couldn't be happier in her new song "Goldmine," a sunny number that's liable to have you whistling along in glee. 

One can almost feel the coastal breeze on the peppy track as the Malibu native opens, singing with an infectious whistle, ukulele and light percussion accompanying, "If all I had was a dollar and your bright smile / I'd have a dollar more than I would need to get by / cause I'm a billionaire if you count every sunrise / walkin' by your side and every good night."

The feel good tune originated through a writer, Caillat tells Billboard, she's actually never met named Taylor Berrett. But when Caillat's friend Kara DioGuardi passed the track along she was almost instantly hooked on it. From there, things came together quickly with some help from modern technology. 

"Within three minutes of hearing [Berrett's] idea I was singing it on repeat," she says. "I ran upstairs and played it for Jason Reeves and we instantly started writing to it. We called Kara on Skype so the three of us could write it together. She was at her cozy house in Maine and we were at our beach house in California. Within minutes we finished the song and started recording it right away, rearranging our song priority recording list. This happy, warm song is definitely one of the most unique ways I've ever written."
