“There’s a sense of weightlessness and openness to [Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.’s] music…This is rock as release: light enough for takeoff, airy enough for escape.” – NPR
“‘It’s a Corporate World’ displays Epstein and Zott’s knack for penning smart pop music-they’re songwriters who can deftly and ably change hats.” – NYLON

Detroit duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr have released a new video for the single “Simple Girl,” taken from their acclaimed debut LP, It’s A Corporate World, which made one of Filter’s “Top 20 Records of 2011 (So Far..)” and the NPR Listeners Poll as “Best Of The Year.” Wrapping up their second headlining tour of 2011, including a performance at this year’s Lollapalooza, the band will perform at this weekend’s Austin City Limits and Philadelphia’s Popped! Festival before a final show in NYC. They will then head overseas for a European tour.

The video for “Simple Girl” begins with a prepubescent version of the band and a mutual infatuation for the girl behind the lemonade stand. Dale member Josh Epstein said of the video, “They say that behind every great man is an even greater woman–but sometimes, behind 2 mediocre men, we find that there is only one great woman and a whole mess of unfulfilled athletic dreams,” with Daniel Zott adding, “we enjoy pickup basketball and more specifically, Josh rejecting the layups of small children.”
