Intoxicating! Train & Skylar Grey Come Together For “Mai Tais”
With the exception of last year’s Greatest Hits compilation, Train has been unusually quiet since releasing 2017’s A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat. The veteran rock band returns today (November 15) with a mellow anthem called “Mai Tais.” A collaboration with Skylar Grey, this intoxicating bop is just about feeling loved up (and little tipsy). “I’ll be sippin’ Mai-Tais, looking back at my life,” Skylar begins the track. “Remembering the highlights, thinking how the time flies.”
Pat Monahan is also feeling similarly reflective in his verse. “Mai-Tais sippin’ in the middle of the afternoon, daydream drinking, baby — here’s to you,” he croons. “Looks like we made it and we ain’t even through, it ain’t even two and nothing compares to you.” The collaborators then come together for the sweet and tropical chorus. Excitingly, Train and Skylar will perform the song on tonight’s episode of Magnum P.I. on CBS. Listen to the “Mai Tais” below. Don’t be too surprised if this turns out to be a sleeper hit.
