LOVE AND THEFT’S NEW SINGLE “GIMME TONIGHT” AVAILABLE NOW, EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE YESTERDAY ON POPCULTURE
OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO LAUNCHING ON THE DUO’S YOUTUBE TODAY
CMA, ACM and CMT-nominated duo Love and Theft’s new single “Gimme Tonight” is available now. The sultry upbeat jam written by Jaren Johnston (The Cadillac Three) and the late Andrew Dorff, premiered exclusively yesterday on PopCulture. The duo is continuously evolving and pushing boundaries with their music by featuring signature harmonies wrapped in a fresh modern sound and “Gimme Tonight” is no exception.
“ ‘Gimme Tonight’ is one of those songs that really sucks you in from the opening riff. On the production side of things, we wanted to do something different and we tried to take a riskier approach than we have on other songs,” says the duo. “There are touches of our classic influences, but the track has a lot of those modern elements that really make the song jump out of the speakers.”
The music video, produced by Grant Claire and the team at Artist Integration, is modeled after the hit tv show “True Detective”.
“We tried to come up with a concept for this video that would tell the story in a mysterious yet visually stimulating way,” explains the duo. “The video really helps to showcase some of the cool musical moments with artful imagery, and a dreamlike storyline. Our director, Grant Claire, was able tell the story in a suggestive and atmospheric way that made me want to watch the video again and again!”
“Gimme Tonight” was produced by Josh Leo, Jim Ed Norman and Love and Theft.
