As a follow up to his debut single, and very first number one, “Drunk Me”, one of our 2019 Artists to Watch, Mitchell Tenpenny continues to change the narrative on drinking by releasing “Alcohol You Later”, a midtempo jam that has been a fan favorite at his live shows.
Last summer when Tenpenny sat down with NASH FM 94.7 for their Up Close & Country at Stage 17, he told the audience “So, like a lot of my song are written from experiences at a bar in Nashville called Losers…So I was sitting there and as a songwriter, you are always kind of just listening to people, trying to come up with ideas cause we write like every single day if we are in town and I just remember hearing this really country guy sitting right next to me and he just told his buddy, he was just saying goodbye but he said “Alright buddy, I’ll call ya later”, and it sounded like he said Alcohol You Later, and I wrote it down really quick.” He went into the room the next day with that hook, and so, “Alcohol You Later” was born.
As the song arrives at country radio and climbs the charts, Tenpenny released a killer video yesterday to accompany the tune, directed by award-winning video director TK McKamy. The filtered video transitions from an empty bar to Tenpenny at home, singing about his on again off again fling that he will most likely be calling after a night of being out. As geometric shapes fly across the screen bringing you from one scene to the next, the colored filters are intriguing and add an interesting element to the visual. Check out the video below.
Fans can catch the singer-songwriter on Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour which hits Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden on May 17th and out on Long Island at Bald Hill Amphitheater on May 25th.
