Track was recorded following rescheduled arena tour
Dan + Shay are set to release “I Should Probably Go To Bed” on Friday, July 31st via Warner Music Nashville. The duo shared the news via social media this week, where fans who Pre-Save can hear it first.
“We’re so excited about our brand new single, ‘I Should Probably Go To Bed,’ Dan Smyers shares. “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. 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. Shay delivered one of my favorite vocal performances of all time. We’re so proud that this is our new single.”
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.
