Nashville-based band Nightly are releasing their first single written and recorded in quarantine, “you should probably just hang up,” out everywhere today via BMG Recordings. Inspired by a friend’s failed relationship, the track marks a new era for the band.
“We wrote ‘you should probably just hang up’ about a toxic situation,” Jonathan Capeci explains in a recent interview. “The song came to us super quickly, and we immediately recorded and produced it in Joey’s basement.”

“you should probably just hang up” comes after the band’s collaboration with singer/songwriter Charli Adams, “the movies”. The “cinematic” track collaboration with Adams happened during a phone call while Nightly was on their recent headlining tour. “I called Charli and she was into the idea. We actually wrote the lyrics to her second verse over the phone… we thought it would be cool to tell another side of the story.” Download/stream “the movies (ft. Charli Adams)” everywhere HERE and watch the acoustic video HERE.
Nightly, formed by cousins Jonathan Capeci and Joey Beretta, and drummer Nick Sainato, have released a steady stream of music since their 2016 debut honest EP, which featured the 10 million-plus streamed single “XO.” With a fresh start to 2020, the band recently released the cinematic track “the movies (ft Charli Adams)” under their new partnership with BMG Recordings. Nightly will release their new single “You Should Probably Just Hang Up” on May 22, and will continue a steady release of music throughout the year.
