Old Dominion Share New Songs ‘Be With Me’, ‘Not Everything’s About You’ [LISTEN]
Ahead of the release of their new album, Old Dominion have debuted two of the record's brand-new songs. Above, readers can hear "Not Everything's About You;" below, listen to "Be With Me."
The "Be With Me" video kicks off with women of all ages, races and sizes sharing stories about the women who empower them, then leads right into the song, with those same women lip-syncing the lyrics -- “Like your daddy told you when you were a little girl / You could be anything ... A tiger versus you, girl, ain’t even a fight / Next to you, the sun can’t even call itself a light” -- while dancing, wearing costumes and singing into a mic. The women were told they were auditioning to be in Old Dominion's music video, but as lead singer Matthew Ramsey reveals in a video message, their "auditions" were recorded to use as the video itself.
Old Dominion's "Not Everything's About You" video, meanwhile, features footage from the band's live shows. Director Steve Jawn and his cameras followed the band backstage and onstage to create the clip.
Previously, Old Dominion released a music video for “Shoe Shopping,” as well as one for the “mellow, reflective” song “Written in the Sand.” Both tracks, as well as "Be With Me" and "Not Everything's About You," appear on the group's forthcoming album, Happy Endings, which is set for release on Aug. 25.
In celebration of Happy Endings, Old Dominion have embarked on a short "dive bar" tour. They're playing small venues in Los Angeles, Cleveland, New York City and more.
