NASHVILLE, TN (May 19, 2023)– Today, one of the fresh new faces of country, Kidd G, returns with the rousing “Daylight Savings.” Arriving hot on the heels of the rising talent’s inclusion in Billboard’sprestigious “21 Under 21” list for 2023, the infectious crowd-pleaser finds himself at the very peak of his powers. The Georgia hitmaker is currently on tour where “Daylight Savings” will undoubtedly be a highlight. See dates HERE.
Listen to “Daylight Savings” (Rebel Music / Geffen Records / The Valory Music Co.) by Kidd G HERE.
Struggling with sleepless nights after a breakup, G’s latest record is about the reprieve that morning can bring. “I just need some daylight savings to save myself from saying that these late-night cravings make me think and toss and turn,” the 20-year-old croons over swaggering electric guitar and explosive drumming. “Never thought the man on the moon and the stars in the sky would bring me down.”
“It’s based on a literal dream I had— a bad dream,” G says of the song. “I’m in this old relationship that keeps haunting me and I just can’t stop going back to it. ‘Daylight Savings’ is a means of processing those emotions. The feeling I get with this song is closure,” he continues, “finally being able to close that chapter and move on in my life with myself and others.”
“Daylight Savings” is the up-and-comer’s first new music of the year following an epic rise to crossover stardom. Kidd G hit the Billboard country charts just a few months after his 17th birthday with The New York Times calling his meteoric rise “a study in fluidity.” He has already gained over 1.5 million followers on TikTok and racked up tens of millions of views on YouTube with songs like 2022’s “People Talk,” which has amassed over 10 million streams on Spotify alone.
Kidd G closed out last year with his EP, The Nashville Sessions, featuring new, twangy versions of his beloved tracks, recorded at the titular town’s iconic Blackbird Studio. With “Daylight Savings,” the multi-hyphenate’s skills are only getting sharper. Now, he’s ready to conquer country music— and so much more. See his current tour dates below and get tickets HERE.
