DAN + SHAY RELEASE “TEQUILA,” THE FIRST SINGLE FROM THE DUO’S THIRD ALBUM, OUT LATER THIS YEAR.
Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) released their brand new single on Wednesday. “Tequila,” the duo’s first offering in nearly a year, was co-written by Smyers alongside Jordan Reynolds and Nicolle Galyon. The track is not the typical late-night drinking anthem that the title might allude to, but instead is a heartbreaking tale of love lost and deep regret. Something often felt after a long night with a bottle of tequila.
The breakout duo are amping up the momentum from an exceptional 2017, which saw them amass more than 230 million streams, sell out shows in four international territories and earn a half-dozen award nominations – all between celebrating two marriages and a baby. The first new country duo in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart, Dan + Shay collected their second RIAA Platinum certification in 2017 for “From The Ground Up,” the first single off of their sophomore release Obsessed. Soon after they notched their third consecutive No. 1 song with the Gold-certified “How Not To.”
Dan + Shay are currently finishing up their third album, which is expected to drop later this year. In the meantime, listen to “Tequila” and share your comments on the duo’s new track below.
