Shinedown Releases Soaring Anthem “Daylight”

Multi-platinum band Shinedown have released their soaring and poignant anthem “Daylight.” Offering an assurance that you are never alone, the single’s meaningful portrait of a vital human connection reflects the importance of our relationships and the people in our lives whose support and empathy help get us through to the next day.

PRESS HERE to listen to “Daylight” from Shinedown’s forthcoming album Planet Zero out July 1st on Atlantic Records. Check out the first look and interview with front man Brent Smith via PEOPLE

“This is about the human condition. We’ve got to live, and we’ve got to live with one another. And that should be something that is celebrated and not tolerated. That’s what ‘Daylight’ really represents. It’s our humanity. It’s an understanding that we’re all on this planet together, and we’ve got to figure out ways to take care of one another. A lot of times, it may just be asking someone ‘are you okay?’ because you could potentially save someone’s life just by asking. We can’t lose our empathy and courage towards each other, or our willingness to pick someone up if you see them on their knees, because there’s gonna be a moment in time when you need someone to pick you up,” says Brent.

“Daylight” is the latest addition to a catalog that has earned Shinedown recognition for their timely and relevant messages behind their chart-topping hits that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but the greater public and our culture at large. With more than 6.5 billion global streams, the record for the most mainstream rock #1 hits ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, and major media praise, Shinedown has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.

Planet Zero, which already spawned the band’s record-breaking 18th #1 hit with “Planet Zero,” is available for pre-order HERE.

Planet Zero’s previously released lead single “Planet Zero” and album track “The Saints of Violence and Innuendo” introduced an album that is an incisive yet optimistic look at the fractures and frays of a society that has undergone many challenges in the last few years, seeing Shinedown take on the forces that are keeping us divided at a time when we need to be coming together. The high-concept, viscerally charged album, produced by Shinedown’s Eric Bass, takes a hard look at the divisiveness among those of differing ideologiescancel culture ran rampant, the toxicity of social mediathe need for honesty in our public discourse, and the corrosive effects of these things on mental health and humanity. A dystopian saga that warns of dangerous dehumanizing consequences, Planet Zero is a reminder that if we shut each other down, we risk losing empathy, respect for one another, and our ability to communicate and unify in a way that leads to actual progress and understanding. The album also shares hope, perseverance, triumph, and reminders that we all need one another, like on “Daylight.” After all, it is the band’s impassioned striving for unity that has long been at the heart of their creative output.

The Planet Zero World Tour (produced by Live Nation) begins in Bonner Springs, KS on September 3rd with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie, kicking off a U.S. run of fall shows that will see the record-breaking, chart-topping band bring their new music, #1 hits, fan favorites and biggest stage show yet to cities from coast to coast.
