The New Respects Release Single
January 27, 2017 (Nashville, TN) — Nashville’s The New Respects has unveiled its music video for “Money,” the family quartet’s latest single out January 13 on Credential Recordings. Premiering yesterday with Interview Magazine, drummer Darius Fitzgerald says that, “When we started writing this song we had zero dollars between the four of us. But we still had a good time living life.” Set in an extravagant mansion, the video’s concept sees the band creating caricatures of themselves which contrasts who they really are. Darius goes on to say, “The carefree spirit is what drives the song, and allows the listeners to let go and have fun.”
It was a chance meeting in Nashville that brought The New Respects together with producer/drummer Jeremy Lutito (of rock group Leagues). Lutito took an immediate liking to The New Respects’ soul/rock sound, and produced this single along with the group’s previous single, “Trouble,” which recently saw placements on TNT’s NBA broadcast, ESPN’s Major League Soccer coverage, and Fox Sports’ Road To The Octagon.
The New Respects is a family affair, made up of three siblings, twins Alexis (bass) and Zandy Fitzgerald (guitar), along with their brother Darius (drums), and cousin Jasmine Mullen (vocals/guitar). The group is heavily influenced by the gospel music they were surrounded by growing up in Nashville, which extends to artists including Aretha Franklin, Alabama Shakes, and John Mayer. Looking ahead, The New Respects will showcase as an official artist at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX.
