Word on the street is that GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum selling NEEDTOBREATHE are set to become the “talk of the town” with their first new music of 2022 and first independent release in the bands storied career. Their new summer single, “Talk of the Town,” is a fun head-turning anthem which NEEDTOBREATHE hopes will encourage listeners to “not to take themselves too seriously.’ The accompanying music video, directed by Dylan Reyes, follows the ‘perfect’ people of Summer around the streets of Nashville caught up in their own obsession with self-image. “Talk of the Town” was written by Bear Rinehart, Jon Hume and Tofer Brown, was produced by NEEDTOBREATHE and their longtime collaborator Cason Cooley (Ben Rector, Ingrid Michaelson).
“We wanted to release a one-off summer rock song that has some attitude and is fun to sing,” shares the band. “For the video, we wanted to make something outlandish that shows how ridiculous people can be caring about self-image. We all can put on a mask to try and make ourselves look like we’ve got it all together. But clearly, nobody’s perfect. We hope people dig it.”
Next month, NEEDTOBREATHE with embark on a 40-city amphitheater tour with OneRepublic. The tour, called the Never Ending Summer Tour, kicks off on July 8th at PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, NC before continuing in cities such as Boston, Detroit, St. Louis, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, and more then wrapping up in Jacksonville, FL on September 4th.
