Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley released a new video for their current single, “Simple,” which is the first offering from their upcoming fourth studio album.
Filmed at Nashville’s historic plantation house Travellers Rest and directed by Justin Clough, the period-piece video flashes back to a “simpler” time to tell a love story.
“‘Simple’ felt just right to start our next chapter and I’m so proud of this video,” says Tyler. “The ease in this song, this storyline, it’s all so reflective of where we are right now in our own lives . . . enjoying the little—and simple—things.”
“With this feel-good tune, we’re going back to basics, the stripped-down roots,” says Brian. “We’re so excited that fans are vibing with its simple nature.”
“The song ‘Simple’ was born on the road on the Tree Vibez Bus,” says Tyler. “That was just a special song that was born out of an idea that I kinda had—just living in a world where things get so complicated and everybody seems to want to complicate things. Majority of the time, I just find that for us it’s just easy to keep it simple. There’s no need to complicate it, especially when it comes to love and [our] relationships with our wives and our families. Just a little reminder to simplify things every now and then and have a good time while you do it.”
“I think Tyler and I both knew and our whole team kinda knew that ‘Simple’ was probably gonna be the first single off of this next project,” says Brian. “We just feel like it’s the next step for FGL. It has a fresh sound and it’s just a good time to put it out. It’s a good time to live simply as much as things can get complicated.”
Penned by Tyler, Brian, Michael Hardy and Mark Holman, “Simple” was produced by longtime studio collaborator Joey Moi.
With more details coming soon, FGL’s next album will follow 2016’s Dig Your Roots, which spawned No. 1 hits “H.O.L.Y.,” “May We All” and “God, Your Mama, And Me.”
