Multi-platinum, chart-topping band Shinedown has released a tour video for their current single “Daylight”. The powerful visual, dedicated to all the fans worldwide, is set to the Amazon Original version of the hit single off their latest album, “Planet Zero,” and documents their just-wrapped Planet Zero World Tour.
“Daylight” is a meaningful portrait of a vital human connection that reminds us that we are never alone and reflects on the importance of empathy and the relationships in our lives that help get us through to the next day. The poignant anthem, hailed by People magazine as “the most powerful of pop-rock songs created to remind us that we are truly all in this together,” marks Shinedown’s 19th #1 at Active Rock and 18th #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart – both all-time records on these charts.
“Daylight” has also been streamed over 15 million times collectively across DSPs. The Amazon Original version, first released in September, is a complete re-imagining of the song that changes up the chord progression and tempo, and injects big drums and an aggressive distorted synth guitar tone that balances against the beauty and softness of the verses and chorus.
Shinedown’s acclaimed seventh studio album “Planet Zero,” produced by the band’s bassist Eric Bass, is out now via Atlantic Records. “Planet Zero” debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart and the Official UK Albums Chart, and at #1 on six other Billboard charts including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums Charts.
Led by tracks like “Daylight” and title track “Planet Zero”, the album’s searing social commentary boldly confronts the societal forces that perpetuate divisiveness while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation – ultimately serving as a reminder that it is our human connections that matter the most.
“Planet Zero” is the latest addition to SHINEDOWN‘s record-breaking catalog that has earned the band recognition for their timely and relevant messages behind their chart-topping hits that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but the greater public and our culture at large. With more than 6.5 billion global streams, a Billboard record for the most mainstream rock No. 1 hits ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, 10 million albums sold, and major media praise, SHINEDOWN has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.
