Old Dominion not only delivered a new preview track from their next album on Friday as promised, they also made a video for it.
In the “My Heart Is a Bar” clip, the five-man band turns one of their trailers into a watering hole to have some fun with their crew while on the road.
But with lyrics like “My heart is a bar and I’m closing it down,” the song’s not nearly as happy as the video.
“‘My Heart Is A Bar’ might be the loneliest sing-along of all time,” lead singer Matthew Ramsey admits. “It’s a song about feeling alone, and used, and pissed off at love to the point of throwing up your hands and saying, ‘Screw this!’”
“That’s a feeling a lot of people can identify with,” he adds. “It’s lonely and liberating at the same time. That’s why we decided to treat this like a big, barroom sing-along so we can all sing and say ‘Screw this!’ together!”
The third album from the CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year is set to arrive October 25. For the first time, they co-produced it themselves, alongside longtime collaborator Shane McAnally. It features their current hit, “One Man Band,” along with their previous number one, “Make It Sweet.”
