Welcome to Music Friday when we bring you new tunes with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, the Seratones — fronted by gospel-trained powerhouse A.J. Haynes — remind you to “keep a diamond in your mind” in their 2022 release, “Good Day.”
The song tells us that if we keep our thoughts pure and full of love — the characteristics of a diamond — then we’re well on our way toward making it a good day. Haynes also believes that our society is unnecessarily distracted and stressed out by the internet and social media and that it’s healthier to put our phones away, get outdoors and enjoy the simple things in life.
Haynes sings, “Keep a diamond in your mind / Don’t you know that you are so divine? / Baby, you were made to shine.”
In the song’s last line, she emphasizes that “being in love is free.”
“Good Day” is the fourth track on the band’s third studio album, Love & Algorhythms. The band got a big boost at the end of April when they performed “Good Day” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The single currently ranks #23 on the US Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay chart.
The song provides the perfect vehicle for Haynes to showcase her amazing range and booming falsetto. Haynes developed her singing talents at the Brownsville Baptist church, starting at the age of six.
Formed in Shreveport, LA, in 2013, the Seratones quickly became a favorite of the Louisiana club circuit and won the Louisiana Music Prize that same year. Paste Magazine picked the Seratones as one of the “Top 20 new bands of 2015.”
The group would go on to earn national fame in 2016 with its debut album, Get Gone. The soul-rock group will be promoting its new album with a tour that will make stops in 13 states and three European countries.
Please check out the video of the Seratones’ live performance of “Good Day.” It was filmed at Skydeck in Nashville, TN, and featured on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
