    Multi-platinum selling hard rock band Shinedown have released a 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.

    Talking about the inspiration and intention of Daylight, frontman Brent Smith shares. 

    “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.”

    Daylight is the latest single off of the band's forthcoming record Planet Zero which already spawned the band’s record-breaking 18th US #1 hit with Planet Zero. 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 ideologies, the toxicity of social media, and the 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.
