Simple Plan is getting ready to release their fifth studio album, and after a summer packed with promo singles, the band has finally released their official lead single: “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed” has a slick funky groove, amplified by blasting horns and well-placed falsetto vocals. Rapper Nelly also features on the track, bringing the “Summer Paradise” throwback full circle. So far, each new Simple Plan song this year has been better than the last, and “I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed” is certainly deserving of the official lead single title.
“I Don’t Wanna Go To Bed” also comes with a fun, Baywatch-themed music video, which the band filmed in August. Frontman Pierre Bouvier stars as himself, while Chuck Comeau plays Dax, Jeff Stinco is Q-Ball, David Desrosiers is Captain Rider, and Sébastien Lefebvre plays J.C. Cunningham. The band members, looking better than ever, take turns saving drowning damsels in between games of volleyball. The video ends with a cameo from David Hasselhoff himself.
