Just hours after the release of their much-anticipated new single, “I Should Probably Go To Bed,” Dan + Shay brought the song to life with an eclectic music video.
The Patrick Tracy directed clip finds the duo stuck inside an old mansion. As they wander around, it’s clear that something’s not right. The house then begins to float in the air as its contents begin to shuffle around. The video features recurring themes of red and yellow and has a bit of a throwback vibe, bringing to mind the era of the 1970s.
The duo shot the video during quarantine and followed strict safety protocols due to the coronavirus outbreak.
“Everybody had to get tested for COVID on the way in, and there was a COVID compliance officer walking around and making sure there was never a moment where people had their masks off,” the duo’s Dan Smyers revealed to Billboard. “It was crazy, but, you know, it was what we had to do. And I think it felt good for people to get back to work. People were eager for that. I think this moment has caused us to step back and to appreciate, ‘Hey, we all get to do music for a living. This is incredible. It’s a dream come true.’”
“I Should Probably Go To Bed” is the follow-up to Dan + Shay’s hit single, “10,000 Hours,” a collaboration with pop star Justin Bieber, and will likely appear on Dan + Shay’s forthcoming fourth studio album.
Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney co-wrote the song with Sean Douglas and Jason Evigan. “I Should Probably Go To Bed” 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.
