Dan + Shay’s new single, “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” is here and it does not disappoint.

The song’s debut comes after the duo teased the much-anticipated release via social media for several days. It’s the follow-up to their hit single, “10,000 Hours,” a collaboration with pop star Justin Bieber, and will likely appear on Dan + Shay’s forthcoming fourth studio album.

Written earlier this year, the song was produced entirely by the duo’s Dan Smyers and every instrument was performed and recorded by Smyers at his home studio in Nashville, TN.

Dan Smyers recently shared a story about how the song came about, revealing that it was written between L.A. and Nashville.

“We wrote part of this song in Los Angeles during Grammy week but finished it at my house, on my piano, kind of by accident,” Smyers explained. “Shay had come over to record vocals on another song that we had written. We took a break, went downstairs, started singing this song, and realized this song needs a big ending. So we really went for it.”

Smyers couldn’t help but gush over Mooney’s vocals on the track.

“Shay delivered one of my favorite vocal performances of all time,” he shared. “We’re so proud that this is our new single. Check it out if you haven’t already.”

Dan + Shay were slated to embark on their first-ever headlining arena tour this year but were forced to postpone the run to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
