Sister Hazel Find ‘Something to Believe In’ for Lyric Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Sister Hazel are standing up for all of the simple pleasures that make life worth living in their new lyric video for "Something to Believe In."
The alternative rock/folk-pop band have been active since the early '90s, and they have earned a fanatical following for their uniquely identifiable brand of singer-songwriter elements, folk, rock and roll and more. The Gainesville, Fla. natives turned their attention to country for the first time for their most recent album, Lighter in the Dark, which debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
The album takes its name from "Something to Believe In," a mid-tempo, laid-back track that juxtaposes muted guitar chords against a simple, heartfelt vocal line in the verses, then builds to a big melodic release in the chorus.
"I'm not the King of America, I've got a blue collar heart / Put together with rusted old bolts and discarded radio parts / Just a kid from Gainesville watching Petty with my lighter in the dark," the songs begins.
The images for the "Something to Believe In" lyric video detail the small pleasures that are available to all of us, no matter what social class we occupy, while lyrically Sister Hazel convey the joys and struggles of everyday American life as effectively as anyone in country music.
"We're simple men who love complicated women / Dealt losing hands, but we still think we're winning / Add it all up and it don't seem like much, but it's something / Something to believe in," they sing in the uplifting chorus. Sister Hazel's Andrew Copeland wrote the song with Tom Douglas.
"'Something to Believe In' is an anthemic song about really having a lot of belief, faith and satisfaction in the life you're living and the happiness it brings you," Copeland tells us.
The group are currently playing a series of '90s Fest concerts. The revival shows bring fans of that era the best of '90s music, food, fashion and iconic acts.
