What’s up everyone! I can’t tell you how excited we are to be finally releasing #1Nite! This has been one of our personal favorites off Night Shades, and we feel like proud parents finally getting the chance to witness their dorky kid’s first at-bat. Our friend Ryan Tedder wrote this song with us, and we were brainstorming to figure out what we could do to spice this song up for those of you who already heard it months ago. Well Ryan just signed the first artist to his new Patriot Records, and we thought she would be perfect to record some of the parts on this song (especially the super high ones where I sound like a girl anyway). Her name is Kay, she’s canadian, she’s cool, and we have the distinct honor of presenting her first feature with this revamped version of #1Nite! We hope you guys like it and can get as excited as we are! Go check out our girl! mynameiskay.com
This video you’re about to watch could not have been made without the help of our amazing japanese fans, especially Hinano and @CobraCrewJapan. We shot the majority of it while we were in Japan a few weeks ago, but then we asked our Japanese fans to contribute to it by sending in videos of themselves in iconic and interesting locations all over the country. We were pleasantly surprised by the incredible response we got. Not too mention how well shot and how quickly we received the footage. (The Japanese? Efficient and responsible? Who would’ve guessed.).
Hope you guys enjoy this and it holds you over while we go shoot our full video with Kay! This version of the song will be on iTunes on 5/15!
