Midland's latest single, "Mr. Lonely," has its very own line dance, but that was not by design, according to Cameron Duddy and Mark Wystrach. The dance was only intended to be a small part of the trio's music video, but a label exec had a different idea. They tell us: ["So that was dreamed up in the process of the video, but it was only supposed to be featured for a quick minute and it was going to be thrown together on set. We were just gonna show four dancers boot-scootin-boogien, like just do that. It was supposed to be an aside, and Sandi at our label, Scott’s wife, was like, ‘No, we gotta go hard into this,’ cause she’s a dancer. So, she hired this crazy guy who went way deep in it and you could do a documentary on just that part of the music video because it was its own thing. We could figure it out. (Mark) We could learn it, we could learn it. We’re actually all good dancers. We all like to go two-steppin’ and we can all dance. If you get enough tequila in us, we can pretty much do damn anything.”] SOUNDCUE (:37 OC: . . . do damn anything.)
"Mr. Lonely" is a Top 20 hit and climbing on the charts.
It's the lead single from their sophomore album, Let It Roll, that was released last month.
