Do we need some new lighthearted rock and roll during the October of 2020? We most certainly do! Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts from Atlanta have just released a video for their new single ‘Same Old You’.
Tuk wrote this new track with producer Butch Walker who has worked with such acts as Green Day, Weezer, Fall Out Boy, Pink, Taylor Swift. Tuk spoke of the experience saying, “It was really cool to write with Butch Walker, something I’ve always wanted to do. In Atlanta, he is a hometown hero and a really big inspiration to me so to be able to write with him was really special. I’m super stoked the song turned out so good. You never know what’s gonna happen, we had really good chemistry and it was a lot of fun.”

Speaking of the meaning of the track Tuk says, “This is definitely one of my favorite songs on the record as it’s one of those recurring themes about a relationship I observed, I was kinda from the outside looking in. It struck me that people beg for second changes, and they say ‘I’m gonna change I swear I’ll be different this time, take me back, don’t fire me, I’ll do this..’ and a lot of the time they’re just bullshitting, and they turn around and are the same person. It takes a lot for somebody to change and they gotta want to do it.”
Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts will release new album Looking for Love, Ready for War in 2021.
