Singles from The Midnight Remixed

The Midnight Remixed is the first remix album by The Midnight. It was released through the label Silk Music on August 14, 2017.[1] The album contains remixes of songs from Days of Thunder and Endless Summer.

Prior to the release of The Midnight Remixed, Silk Music issued singles for the songs WeMoveForward, Sunset, and Days of Thunder.[2][3][4] These single releases included the original songs as well as their corresponding remixes that would later be included on the album. A fourth single, Synthetic, was issued after the album's release and contains an additional four remixes of the song that didn't appear on the album.[5]

The Midnight Remixed was a milestone release for the band. It was their first album to be associated with a label and the first to make an appearance on a Billboard chart, where it charted at number 22 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart.[6][7] It was also the first The Midnight album to feature the band's second logo on the cover art, which continues to be used today. The success of The Midnight Remixed led to Silk Music releasing a second The Midnight remix album two years later, The Midnight Remixed 02.

Brooklyn. Friday. Love. is a song by The Midnight. It is the fourth single and second track from their album Heroes. The single was released on August 3, 2022.[8]

The song was written by band members Tyler Lyle and Tim McEwan alongside Nikki Flores and Royce Whittaker. It was produced by McEwan. It has a running time of three minutes and 52 seconds and is in the key of F major. Brooklyn. Friday. Love. has its roots in Lyle's From The Secret Lair project, first appearing on episodes 7 and 25 of season one before being released on Mr. Green's B Sides. A breakdown of the track by McEwan was streamed on Twitch on August 5, 2022.[9]

In an interview with Magnetic Magazine, Lyle elaborated on the song's meaning:[10]

I wrote the initial version of Brooklyn. Friday. Love. in 2016 as a surf rock song while I was living in Ft. Greene. On days when I couldn’t stand staring at my computer screen anymore- usually around 4:00, I would get on a Citibike and ride up Flushing Avenue around the Navy Yard to Williamsburg.

My wife was working long hours at a corporate job in Midtown and usually wasn’t home before 8, so I would walk, well, I would walk and drink Happy Hour bourbon and cokes at Skinny Dennis, and I would look for books at Spoonbill & Sugartown, and vinyl at Rough Trade.

There was a refreshingly weird creative energy that permeated gentrifying Brooklyn that I’d never felt before. It struck me as a kind of weirdo heaven for a kid who grew up in the Bible Belt. When I die I want to go to Skinny Dennis and hear Zydeco or some Bushwick loft party Modular Synth set. Anyway, the place changed.

Apple and Whole Foods soon arrived in Williamsburg and Ft. Greene, the rents went up, the neighbors were no longer starving artist types. My wife and I also grew up- we had a baby and shortly thereafter we decided to end our five year relationship with Brooklyn.

The song became a Midnight song in 2021- two years after I left Brooklyn for Atlanta. I went back to visit New York for the first time during a lull in COVID waves to see my old neighborhood. 1/3 of the businesses were closed. There was more graffiti, and trash piled on the street like I’d never seen it before. I felt like I was seeing the ghost of an old friend. Reworking the song as an idyll to fit The Midnight felt like a way to honor the strangeness and vibrancy of a Brooklyn that seemed to disappear.

Thankfully most of the splendor has returned to the shabby neighborhoods I love, but I’m approaching my late 30s now, with a family and a mortgage and a more predictable life. The thought of drinking absinthe, or staying up past midnight to watch live music, or spending a day writing indie pop songs in an unheated Bushwick squat is unimaginable. This song is about an ideal that may still exist. It just can’t exist for me anymore.
