After a quiet four months to reset the palate and focus on delivering their best work yet, the 2x Grammy-award winning duo have made their highly-anticipated return with a new single titled “I Should Probably Go To Bed”. The announcement took shape with an incredibly appealing teaser video that adds to the excitement of new music and predicts all good things for the familiar yet seemingly rebranded pair.
Despite the noteworthy and prominent direction of the teaser that may have been somewhat influenced by the current state of the world, Dan + Shay chose a more relaxed track to start off a new chapter of music. “I Should Probably Go To Bed” is molded as a stripped-down piano ballad, and expands as the song grows into itself. Though, with the vocal ability that Shay Mooney possesses, the opening verse is enough to be considered an entire, standalone performance. And with Dan Smyers’ production skills, which he did entirely from his home studio, the instrumental component and effects add a mesmerizing, hazy-eyed yet enlightening feel to the lyrics.
“So I should probably go to bed (Ah) / I should probably turn off my phone / I should quit while I’m ahead (Ah) / I should probably leave you alone / ‘Cause I know in the mornin’ (In the mornin’) / I’ll be callin’ (I’ll be callin’) / Sayin’ “sorry” for the things I said / So I, yeah, I should probably go to bed”
The accompanying video continues the intriguing and end-of-the-world, alternate universe feel that the teaser possessed. Though, the video becomes off-balance regarding both the camera itself and the environment surrounding all performers involved. Check it out below:
“I Should Probably Go To Bed” is the duo’s first release since October when their multi-week #1 hit collaboration with Justin Beiber “10,000 Hours” hit airwaves. The song received the most streams in country music history during the first week and is the first song by a country duo or group to debut in the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 5.
After seven years of their formation and three successful albums, Dan + Shay have only scratched the surface. This next era of the 5x Platinum “Tequila” and 4x Platinum “Speechless” artists feels big. It feels like their most creative and focused artistry yet.
