(EBM) Just ten days after debuting their riveting duet "The Thing That Wrecks You," Tenille Townes and Bryan Adams deliver the official music video, available everywhere now.
"The Thing That Wrecks You" arrived Feb. 24 with Billboard noting it "winningly teams Townes' tender-yet-sturdy vocal with... Adams' whispery rasp" and Music Row applauding it as "an essential listening experience." The coinciding music video was directed by Adams and features the two running hastily toward each other through a dimly lit tunnel, knowing they're bound to collide.
On the opportunity to team up with Adams for the project, which was born from a chance encounter in a stairway, Townes shares: "From a Fed-Ex letter to travelling across a loading dock in a music video, this whole adventure has been insane! Bryan Adams directed 'The Thing That Wrecks You' music video and it was amazing working with him in this experience."
Just shy of four minutes, the driving track produced by Townes and her band's guitarist, Jaxon Hargrove, was recorded with her touring band joining her in-studio as well as with Adams adding his own guitar prowess to the song alongside his vocals.
The song offers a preview at new music from Townes, whose most recent project, Masquerades, was released in April 2022 via Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Nashville in partnership with RCA Records. The project was named Album of the Year at the 2022 CCMA Awards and is nominated for Country Album of the Year at the 2023 JUNO Awards, where Townes will also perform.
Fans can catch her on the road this summer on her SIDE A + B TOUR, plus major festivals such as Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Faster Horses Festival, Watershed Festival and more.
