Georgia native, Cole Swindell just released a green-screened music video for his latest song “Single Saturday Night” on Thursday (June 25) after chatting with his fans via the YouTube livestream.
The quarantine filmed music video opens with Swindell sitting on the couch watching the news with the novel COVID-19 alerts flooding the sound, before having a flashback on when live shows were able to happen before waking up and FaceTiming his band. Then being green-screened into different places singing including a baseball field, space, on the beach, in a Hockey rink and more.
During the chorus of the song, Swindell sings:
“Sitting over in the corner, baby, I saw
Pretty red lips working on a white claw
Shaking to a little, shook me all night long
And I thought, man, what a beautiful sight
Ain’t a morning you don’t wake up in my shirt now
Even holding hands walking out of church now
Who’d of thought, baby, looking back that
That would be my last single Saturday night.”
Check out the new music video below.
“Single Saturday Night” was co-written by Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy and Mark Holman and is the lead single from his forthcoming fourth studio album. The single follows Swindell’s No. 1 hit single, “Love You Too Late.”
The music video for “Single Saturday Night” was directed by Michael Monaco and Eder Acevedo.
“I have loved this song since the first listen and wanted to create a video that was just as special!” said Swindell. “We had to get really creative shooting because we were still in quarantine, and it ended being one of the most fun videos I’ve ever done. Because of having that extra time I was able to be really involved in the creative and editing process and this video is a snapshot of my quarantine of trying to tune out all of the bad news and dreaming of being back out on the road at live shows with my band and fans.”
The Georgia native released “Single Saturday Night” for his fans last month to give them new music after he had to pause his headlining Down To Earth Tour and come off the road amidst the current COVID19 crisis. The fans, led by his core Down Home Crew, single-handedly propelled “Single Saturday Night” to No. 7 on the all-genre iTunes chart during its week of release, even without country radio airplay. The groundswell of support to the song was so overwhelming, enormous and positive, the song will officially go for adds at country radio on Monday, June 29.
“Single Saturday Night” debuted on the Spotify US Viral 50 chart this week and as the only country song on the list. Pandora reports that “Single Saturday Night” has been the No. 1 Top Thumbed Song on its New Country Station for four consecutive weeks.
“Single Saturday Night” reached a consumption of over 11K THIS WEEK alone with over 1.3 million on-demand streams and over 43K overall track equivalents. “Single Saturday Night,” which ABC News calls “uptempo and summer-ready,” is currently available across all digital platforms and streaming services and has been applauded by not only fans but media as well.
Swindell will be part of the upcoming “CMA Summer Stay-Cay presented by Budweiser Nitro Gold,” a brand new, multi-hour live stream variety event of more than 50 Country artists coming together (while safely apart) for a CMA Fest-inspired fun and collaborative summertime celebration on Wednesday, July 1 starting at 5:00 PM/CT on CMA’s YouTube channel
