Premiering today and available everywhere now, the video, directed by TK McKamy and Midland’s own Cameron Duddy, was filmed in one continuous shot, calling to mind the legendary kitchen-to-club scene in Martin Scorsese’s iconic mob film.
To capture a specific barroom vibe for the video, the Texas trio of Duddy, Mark Wystrach and Jess Carson set up their instruments in the center of the dance floor at the famous Billy Bob’s honky-tonk in Fort Worth, TX. The neon signs, two-stepping couples and Wrangler jeans evoke the Urban Cowboy scene of the Seventies, with patrons tipping back more than a few longnecks. As beer bottles clank all around them – and a waitress gets into a fateful fight with her man – Midland re-create “Burn Out” in one seamless take.
Written by the band with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Burn Out” is the new single off the group’s acclaimed debut album ON THE ROCKS. It follows the GOLD-certified No. 1 “Drinkin’ Problem” and the Top 15 hit “Make a Little.”
