We tagged Boat by Southbound xo as one of the best new releases of last week upon release, now we’re delighted to bring you the accompanying music video in this exclusive premiere.

Boat was produced by JARNE and written by Southbound xo band members Missy Lancaster and Sarah Bernardo along with hit songwriters Phil Barton and Brian White during a recent Nashville song writing trip. It’s their first release for 2023.

“I’d been joking around with Sarah during our US writing trip and saying that I really wanted to write a fun song about a boat,” says Missy. “And then at this particular session, we said to co-writer Brian White, ‘do you know anyone in Nashville that has a boat?’ He simply replied with ‘well, everybody knows somebody with a boat.’ From there the song was born!”

“We all love a good boat party, and we hope this track brings everyone as many fun vibes as it did for us when we created it!” adds Sarah.
