NOTD and Nightly Team Up for New Song “about you”
Swedish musical production duo NOTD and Nashville-based pop band Nightly teamed up to release a new song “about you”.
This marks the first time NOTD and Nightly have worked together.
For NOTD, the song follows up “Never A Good Time” with The Band CAMINO, which was released last November.
Meanwhile Nightly, this song is follow-up to “Nightly” released last October.
The track was written by Nicholas Sainato, Tobias Danielsson, Samuel Brandt, Joseph Beretta, Jonathan Capeci and Andrew DeRoberts. Produced by NOTD, Nightly and Andrew DeRoberts.
The accompanying music video was shot by Henrik Nilsson and Zach Pigg.
- NOTD said of the song, “'about you' is a very special song to us that marks a transition in our creative process, one that has been a long time in the making. A few years ago, we were looking for new inspiration, so we decided to DM a few bands that we were big fans of, including Nightly, and they actually responded and sent the topline for 'about you.' Something instantly clicked in our heads and we started working on it right away. The whole thing was basically done in a few months completely over the internet, and we only met the Nightly guys in person a few months ago in Nashville. We love those guys and couldn't be more excited for everyone to finally hear the song that inspired our new direction.”
Nightly said, “When we wrote 'about you,' we started it as a ballad, then NOTD transformed it to live in their world, and we loved it instantly. It was crazy not even meeting the guys until long after the song was done, because they live in Sweden and we live in the States, but collaborating that way was a fun challenge.”
