Shinedown Releases Amazon Original Of Hit Single “Daylight”

Releases Amazon Original Of Hit Single “Daylight”
The Planet Zero World Tour Kicks Off Tomorrow 9/3
“Superstars Shinedown continue their creative evolution…Taken as a whole, Planet Zero continues Shinedown’s good work but widens their stride. Most of these songs could stand alone, but together they’re the work of a band unafraid of veering from one side of life’s road to another, and of rock stars totally in tune with the people who put them there.” – KERRANG
“’Daylight’ is the most powerful of pop-rock songs created to remind us that we are truly all in this together.” – PEOPLE
“… intelligent, uncompromising rock… a fiery epic that’s delivered as sci-fi but is actually a trenchant dissection of the surreal and fractured state of our very own world.” – American Songwriter
“We’re lucky to have Planet Zero as a warning flare. The album is Shinedown’s most strident statement yet. From cancel culture to Twitter addiction to divisive politics, Shinedown take shots at the forces that undermine our shared humanity.” –
“a blatant warning—lose connection and lose humanity.” – Parade
“…a high-concept treatise on societal affairs during the past 22 months, including the travails of living through a pandemic, the pitfalls of social media, mental health issues, political divisiveness, partisan media and cancel culture.” – Billboard
Multi-platinum, chart-topping band Shinedown have released a brand-new Amazon Original of their current hit single “Daylight,” available now only on Amazon Music. PRESS HERE to listen to the track, a complete re-imagining of the song that changes up the chord progression and tempo, and injects big drums and an aggressive distorted synth guitar tone that balance against the beauty and softness of the verses and chorus.
Fans can hear Shinedown’s Amazon Original on the Rock Arena  playlist or by simply asking “Alexa, play the new song from Shinedown” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android, and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals, featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
“Daylight” is a meaningful portrait of a vital human connection that reminds us that we are never alone, and reflects on the importance of empathy and the relationships in our lives that help get us through to the next day. The poignant anthem recently became Shinedown’s 19th #1 at Active Rock and 18th #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart – both all-time records on these charts.
Shinedown’s acclaimed new studio album Planet Zero, produced by the band’s bassist Eric Bass, is out now via Atlantic Records. The album debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart and the Official UK Albums Chart, and at #1 on six other Billboard charts including Top Album Sales, Rock, Hard Rock, and Alternative Albums Charts.
Led by tracks like “Daylight” and title track “Planet Zero,” the album’s searing social commentary boldly confronts the societal forces that perpetuate divisiveness while offering a restorative path forward through empathy and open conversation – ultimately serving as a reminder that it is our human connections that matter the most.
Planet Zero is the latest addition to Shinedown’s record-breaking catalog that has earned the band recognition for their timely and relevant messages behind their chart-topping hits that resonate with not only their global audience and the rock community, but the greater public and our culture at large. With more than 6.5 billion global streams, a Billboard record for the most mainstream rock #1 hits ever, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, 10 million albums sold, and major media praise, Shinedown has cemented their status as one of the most vital and forward-thinking powerhouses in music.
Beginning tomorrow September 3rd, Shinedown kicks off their Planet Zero World Tour with special guests Jelly Roll and John Harvie followed by a headline run in the UK/Europe to close out the year. For tickets and all show details, please visit
Last weekend, front man and Knoxville, TN, native Brent Smith was surprised with the key to Knox County, presented by mayor Glenn Jacobs on stage during the band’s show at Thompson-Boling Arena. The key was crafted by students at Brent’s alma mater South Doyle High School. PRESS HERE to watch.

Multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown – Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – were named #1 on Billboard’s Greatest Of All Time Mainstream Rock Artists Chart, after notching the most ever #1s (18) in the 40-year history of the Mainstream Rock Songs Chart with a string of consecutive #1 hit singles “Atlas Falls,” “ATTENTION ATTENTION,” “GET UP,” “MONSTERS,” “DEVIL,” “Planet Zero,” and now “Daylight.” With over 6.5 billion global streams, 19 #1 Active Rock hits, 10 million albums sold worldwide, 14 platinum and gold singles, platinum or gold certification for all their albums, and countless sold-out arena tours, Shinedown have also become an essential cultural force as evidenced by their major media acclaim and participation in the prestigious 92Y Talks series. The band’s last studio album, 2018’s acclaimed  ATTENTION ATTENTION  , debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 and simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts.  Shinedown also recently made their ATTENTION ATTENTION feature film available worldwide. A stunning visual counterpart to their 2018 acclaimed album of the same name, the film, directed by Bill Yukich (Beyoncé, Metallica, Wiz Khalifa), brings to life the album’s narrative about a mental health journey and the resolve of the human spirit, weaving together 14 songs into a provocative and thought-provoking cinematic story that illuminates yet another dimension of Shinedown’s limitless creativity.
