Shane Smith & The Saints are BACK With First New Music In Four Years, Drop New Single “Hummingbird”

Shane Smith & The Saints are BACK with some brand new music.

After four long years without an official studio recording from the boys, they just dropped a brand new single called “Hummingbird.”

It’s a love song at its core, but addresses some other real life issues that can make a relationship much more complex and nuanced, like anxiety and depression.

Shane says that he hopes it can help someone out there who might deal with similar issues and relate to the subject matter:

“It’s been too long since we’ve released a studio recording, so tonight at midnight we’re dropping a single.. as usual, since this is a VERY grass-roots operation, please set your alarms, tag/send it around to anyone that needs to hear it, add it to your playlists, and let’s see what it can do.

I’m in Cusco, Peru right now and the bird-song vibe has followed me down here. ‘Hummingbird’ is a track I wrote with my step-cousin Jonathan Terrell and it hit me in the feels immediately when we played through it.

It’s a love song at it’s core, but covers some heavier subject-matter around anxiety and depression that I think a lot of folks can relate to these days. Hopefully it can have some kind of positive impact on any listeners dealing with those issues.

Much love fam. Let it steer the ship. Really hope you dig it.”

He also noted that it was reminiscent of some of the classic country he used to listen to riding around in the car with his dad growing up, which is, quite literally, music to my ears:

“This song, for me personally, takes a step back in time to some of the older, classic music I grew up listening to, anytime I was riding around with my dad.”

Featuring those signature, soulful lyrics and rich vocals from Shane, the song is deep and beautiful and the production is perfect.

Whatever this song means in terms of more new music to come soon, I have a feeling it’s gonna be really good…

And in case you missed it, Shane stopped by the Whiskey Riff Raff podcast not too long ago to discuss the Yellowstone Effect, going on tour with Whiskey Myers, recording in a desert storm near the Mexican border and more.
