Listen to Molly Parton’s “Redneck”

04 May 2020 - - The DJ List


Molly Parton (Rob "Rez" Resnick of TIMEFLIES) is back with a brand new single "Redneck" and accompanying music video by award-winning animator and illustrator Jai-Head. Reclaiming the word "Redneck," Molly Parton puts a new twist on the term with a fun, catchy, country house track featuring four-on-the-floor danceability and anthemic basslines with classic banjo melodies. The playful animated video presents eye-popping visuals provide a dynamic visual backstory.

"About six months ago, I went down to Nashville to get inspired and write. We were working nonstop, turning out five or six songs a day… but at the end of it all, there was something different about Redneck. I’d been thinking for a while about how the word 'redneck' has always been used, and while to some extent it’s been reclaimed, the word itself has never really been repurposed,” said Molly Parton. “To me, it sounded like something a girl might call a hickey - and what a cool idea for a girl to want to give their lover a mark so that other girls would know they’re taken. With all the talent in the room that day, the song basically wrote itself. Later that night, we took the vocal and put some new, darker chords under it… and a few good bass synths and vocal chops later, we had 'Redneck.'"

"Redneck" is the second single off of Molly Parton's forthcoming debut EP ‘Welcome To Mollyville,’ due out later this year on his new imprint at Entertainment One, Mollyville Records.
