Cole Swindell just dropped the music video for his latest hit, “Single Saturday Night.”
The Georiga native premiered the clip Thursday afternoon (June 25) after chatting with fans about new music, his favorite venues to play, stepping up his TikTok game and much more.
The music video was shot during quarantine and features Swindell and a few of his famous friends. Thanks to green screen technology, the new video sends him to places all over the world. After he falls asleep on the couch watching the news, Swindell wakes up to the beach, the desert, space and beyond surrounded by his friends and his band.
“I have loved this song since the first listen and wanted to create a video that was just as special!” Swindell said of the Michael Monaco and Eder Acevedo directed clip. “We had to get really creative shooting because we were still in quarantine, and it ended being one of the most fun videos I’ve ever done. Because of having that extra time I was able to be really involved in the creative and editing process and this video is a snapshot of my quarantine of trying to tune out all of the bad news and dreaming of being back out on the road at live shows with my band and fans.”

During a recent interview with Country Now and other media, Swindell opened up about the moment he first heard the song and shared how he immediately knew he had to record it.
“I’m sitting there on my couch watching TV at, like, 11 something [PM], and this song comes through from [Ashley] Gorley. And he’s like, ‘Yours if you want it,’” the singer recalled. “I hadn’t even listened to it yet when Hardy sent me a text that was like, ‘Hey, check this out, brand new.’
“So I was like, ‘These guys, two of my favorite songwriters, just sent me a song at the same time. I should probably listen to it.’…I didn’t even listen to it on my headphones. I heard it on my phone. That’s not how you want people to listen to songs when you send them, you want them to listen to it how it’s supposed to be heard, but I knew it from one listen,” he explained.
“Single Saturday Night” follows Swindell’s latest No.1, “Love You Too Late,” and is the lead single from the superstar’s forthcoming fourth studio album. The yet-to-be-announced project will serve as the follow-up to Swindell’s 2018 release, All Of It.
