Love and commitment aren’t what they used to be in Francine Honey’s new video for the song Shacked-Up Sweetie — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
Taken from the bilingual Ontario singer-songwriter’s latest album To Be Continued…, the song playfully examines the fact that commitment and relationships have been redefined in the modern world. But in the end, a promise is still a promise — with or without a diamond ring.
“I wrote this song for my sweetie and I,” says Honey. “We talked about getting married and decided not to. It took me a while to work through my feelings about not getting married, but in the end, I realized that it’s really all about the commitment you make to each other, not the church ceremony.”
Shacked-Up Sweetie is one of 11 personal tales from Honey’s latest release. Cut in Nashville with Grammy-nominated producer Neilson Hubbard (John Prine, Jason Isbell) and first-call players like guitarists Will Kimbrough and Kris Donegan, pianist Danny Mitchell, bassist Dean Marold and legendary fiddler Eamon McLoughlin, To Be Continued… takes Honey’s mix of Americana, Country, Rock, Canadiana, and Blues to the next level, capturing the sound she’s been chasing for years.
