Track was recorded following rescheduled arena tour
“I Should Probably Go To Bed,” the brand new single from Dan + Shay, is available worldwide now. The accompanying music video is filled with surrealist imagery and physics-defying action. Written earlier this year, the song was produced entirely by the group’s Dan Smyers; every instrument was performed and recorded by Smyers at his home studio in Nashville, TN.
The song is the follow up to the biggest single launch of their career after “10,000 Hours” with Justin Bieber became the first song by a country duo or group ever to debut in the Billboard Hot 100’s top five. Written by Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney with Bieber alongside Jessie Jo Dillon, Jordan Reynolds and Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, the track is breaking records with the biggest first-week streaming total in country music history by a wide margin, totaling 115 million global streams and more than 350,000 U.S. track equivalents in less than two weeks since release. The song simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs and all-genre Digital Song Sales charts, becoming the duo’s third to reach the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart following “Speechless” and “Tequila.”
The track is the first since postponing the spring leg of the Dan + Shay The (Arena) Tour due to COVID-19. The tour was rescheduled to kick off in July, but has been pushed entirely to 2021 due to CDC guidelines and social distancing. New dates will be revealed once the logistics are worked out.
With more than five billion career streams, Dan + Shay have garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, ACM, American Music, and Billboard Music Award wins and nominations. The duo took home a second consecutive GRAMMY for Best Country Duo/Group Performance earlier this year (2020 – “Speechless,” 2019 – “Tequila”). Their platinum-certified self-titled album included global hit “Tequila” (5x platinum), multi-format hit “Speechless” (4x platinum), and No.1 country song “All To Myself” (2x platinum). In the seven years since they formed, Dan + Shay have accumulated 31 total RIAA certifications and achieved seven No. 1 singles at country radio.
