Teddy Swims debuts new single “911”

Answering the call for another banger, genre-blurring vocal powerhouse Teddy Swims shares a new single entitled “911” today.  It paves the way for the arrival of his anxiously awaited Tough Love EP—out January 21, 2022. Pre-order Tough Love HERE.

The track locks into a head-nodding groove underpinned by a thumping bass line, simmering beat, and funky guitar. Fusing R&B energy with a soulful red-hot hook, he urges, “Gotta call 911, you can hit me up. Cuz you know I’m the one whenever you need some.” The momentum sways towards a handclap-driven bridge as his vocals float into a high-register crescendo.

It arrives on the heels of the anthemic “Please Turn Green.” The song brought his worldwide stream tally to north of 350 million global streams thus far. Meanwhile, his audience has expanded to 2 million YouTube subscribers and 1.6 million TikTok followers. Recently, he appeared on The Today Show for an interview and traffic-stopping rendition of “Simple Things.”

Next up, he hits the road on his Tough Love World Tour. The three-month trek kicks off in Belfast, UK, on February 6, 2022 (buy tickets here). Check out the full itinerary below.

The hitmaker born Jaten Dimsdale, who first went viral by posting covers on social media, released his debut Unlearning EP to critical acclaim in 2021. Rolling Stone praised his “silky voice that slides right into country, hip-hop, and classic soul,” while American Songwriter applauded the rising star’s “arena-worthy anthems.” The project produced the hit “Bed on Fire,” which was recently transformed into a duet with country artist Ingrid Andress. Throughout the year, he performed “My Bad” on The Kelly Clarkson Show, “Bed on Fire” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, and “Simple Things” on The Late Late Show With James Corden. He also got into the holiday spirit with his A Very Teddy Christmas EP lit up by his rendition of “This Christmas,” dressed as Santa.
