Bret Michaels recently released his highly anticipated new single, “Back In The Day.”
The song, which is described by Michaels as “a modern-day throwback to a feel-good road trip anthem,” takes music fans back to the days when they would scan the radio, searching for their favorite song.
“I do this crazy TikTok thing, and I show people how I write music,” Michaels explained during an interview with radio station KSHE 95. “I’m laying a beat, I’m playing the guitar. And I’m like, [sings] ‘Back in the day, radio played our favorite songs the DJs say. And crank it up.’ And it all hit me, and the song just fell together. It’s just a good-vibe song.”
The feel good song’s video features some never before seen images from the early days of the MTV network and photos done in front of a traditional green screen with pop-up graphics.
“The video reflects the feel of early MTV videos with green screen, pop-up captions and never-before-seen photos and original Hi-8 images of my youth,” the Poison frontman explained in a press release. “It is a song that truly reflects on great times and pays homage to the radio stations and DJs that cranked up the music while bringing us great songs that have withstood the test of time, songs that all my friends and I would sing along to then and now.”
“Music is a universal language meant to unite us, not divide us, and that is exactly what this song is about,” the rocker added. “It’s also a hell of a lot of fun to sing along to, as is the video to watch as it weaves a story of my life and the music that rocked it!”
