In anticipation of the album’s release, Kennedy debuted the album’s lead single, ‘In Stride’ Tuesday, along with the song’s companion video. The video is presented stylistically in the same fashion as Alter Bridge’s video for its single ‘Native Son,’ with origami style visuals used to address everything going on in the world as Kennedy sings over the whole, reminding audiences they need to just calm down.
Those words of wisdom sit at the heart of the song’s lyrical theme, according to Kennedy himself.
“Chill out. That pretty much sums it up,” he said. “The lyric paints a picture of a survivalist preparing for an impending zombie apocalypse. It was inspired by the first wave of lockdowns as everyone was buying vast amounts of toilet paper and supplies. I started to ask myself if it might be wise to try and gain some perspective and not overreact… keep calm and carry on.”
