The song arrives with a music video, which Billboard is exclusively premiering below, showing couples of all ages “swayin’ to the music,” just as the lyrics suggest.
Watch it here:
“Slow Dancing” was first released by Tempchin’s band the Funky Kings on their 1976 self-titled album. The next year, Johnny Rivers released a version under the title “Swayin’ to the Music (Slow Dancin’)” that went gold. Olivia Newton-John, Unicorn and many others have also famously released covers.
The song is from Tempchin’s new album Peaceful Easy Feeling – The Songs of Jack Tempchin and is available for instant-grat download with pre-orders of the project.
The album is out Aug. 25 and pays tribute to Tempchin’s late songwriting partner and friend Glenn Frey, with Tempchin’s own versions of a dozen popular tracks.
