– Kenny Chesney made a video to match the "Noise," the first single from his next CD, "Some Town Somewhere."
Filled with quick cuts, slices of technology, Donald Trump, talking heads, fashion models, vintage images, a Kardashian and people yelling, Chesney debuted the Shaun Silva-directed video at Rolling Stone.
"They have been the cultural and societal touchstone since I was a kid," Chesney said, "and that gives them the gravitas to reflect what Shaun and I were trying to capture in the song. This is notpolitical, so much as social...if you want to get people to take it all in, to step back and really reflect, let's put the video at the heart of where people who sort those things are."
Written en route to a marketing meeting for the original single from "Some Town Somewhere," Chesney recorded 36 hours later and released 2 weeks later
With the 2016 Spread the Love Tour underway, Chesney will release his new CD on July 8.
