Dan + Shay “Super Stoked” About New Music They’ve Written and Recorded

With the released of “I Should Probably Go to Bed” on July 31, Dan + Shay shared their first new music since “10,000 Hours” dropped in October 2019.

After the COVID-19 pandemic forced the duo to cancel more than 30 dates on their 2020 Arena Tour, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney decided to use their time at home to “write the best music” possible.

“I Should Probably Go to Bed,” which is currently No. 19 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after five weeks, was co-penned by Dan, Shay, Sean Douglas and Jason Evigan. The new tune was produced entirely by Dan, who performed and recorded every instrument at his home studio in Nashville.

“We hadn’t put out any new music since ‘10,000 Hours,’ which was October 4 of last year,” says Shay to The Country Daily. “And, we have the luxury of time right now. We have the responsibility to write the best music we possibly can and try to one-up the last thing we did. And so, right now, we have time to do that . . . and we’ve got a lot of stuff in the tank that we’re super proud of that we’ve recorded and written that we’re super stoked on.”

In addition to writing and recording new music, Dan + Shay announced a new 2021 Arena Tour with more than 30 dates. The duo also picked up four nominations at the CMA Awards on Nov. 11, including Vocal Duo of the Year, Single of the Year (“10,000 Hours”), Musical Event of the Year (“10,000 Hours”) and Music Video of the Year (“10,000 Hours”). On Sept. 16, the duo will perform “I Should Probably Go to Bed” at the ACM Awards—Dan is nominated for six awards, while Shay is nominated for five awards.
