[New York – April 19, 2019] Nashville’s-own Moon Taxi today releases their brand new single and video for “Now’s the Time” and an additional new track “This World” today via RCA Records.
These new tracks come on the heels of Moon Taxi’s announcement yesterday that they are kicking the NFL Draft festivities, performing on the Draft Main Stage on Thursday, April 25 in Nashville, TN. Each night of the three-day NFL Draft will feature a free concert with Tim McGraw performing on 4/26 and Dierks Bentley on Saturday, April 27.

Both “Now’s The Time” and “This World” are available now as a 2-track bundle everywhere via all digital service providers.
Moon Taxi released their 5th studio album and first for RCA entitled Let The Record Play, last year, featuring their breakthrough single “Two High.” “Two High” propelled the band to new heights, with over 118 million streams on Spotify to date, surpassing 3 million video views (lyric + official), enjoying heavy rotation play on multiple SiriusXM stations, topping the AAA radio chart #1 and charting Top 10 at Alternative Radio. “Two High” encourages listeners to keep looking for a positive way forward – from their own internal battles, to the ones challenging the world at large. The band performed their smash hit single on the Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Rolling Stone wrote of Moon Taxi: “Over the last few years, Nashville’s Moon Taxi have worked their way up from Bonnaroo buzz-band to something approaching Kings of Leon country, playing a pleasingly cross-bred rock – a little indie, a little proggy, kinda poppy.” NPR raved of their musicality: “Moon Taxi a jam band – that is, if its instrumental excursions weren’t so concise, carefully thought-out and frequently refined in the years they’ve spent touring.” And their hometown paper, The Tennessean declared: “Moon Taxi evolves from ‘college project’ to rock stars.”
The band has thrived on the touring circuit for years, bringing their electric performances to Coachella, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, and beyond. The band also celebrated a career-defining moment as “Nashville’s own” in October ’17 when they performed at a two night, sold-out run at the famed Ryman Auditorium. Their music has been embraced as well by brands using their songs for many commercial and TV placements – from JEEP, to Microsoft Surface Pro, McDonald’s, to BMW, along with landmark sporting events including the Olympics, MLB, NFL, and NHL and HBO Sports. Their songs are motivational and energizing, and they have become a “go-to” band for songs that inspire forging ahead.
Moon Taxi is Trevor Terndrup (vocals, guitarist), Spencer Thomson (lead guitarist and producer), Wes Bailey (keyboardist), Tommy Putnam (bassist) and Tyler Ritter (drummer).
