mom+pop music’s Sleeper Agent will exclusively premiere a new song, “Not Never,” produced by Courtney Taylor of The Dandy Warhols, in the latest installment of Nike Sportswear’s video series, ALWAYS ON, featuring WNBA Atlanta Dream star Lindsey Harding. Sleeper Agent wrote the song exclusively for the series.
The video features Harding sharing an intimate glimpse into her daily activities, including spending the morning scrambling up staircases, analyzing game footage and spending quality time with her friends in the streets of Atlanta, with “Not Never” playing in the background. “Not Never” is dense with scorching guitars, insistent drums and motivational lyrics, providing the perfect mood for a day in the life glimpse into Harding’s life.
“We met Courtney through Alex’s cousin, Ray Gordon, the first time we played the Crystal Ballroom in Portland,” said Sleeper Agent’s Tony Smith. “We became fast friends and spent the evening sharing music at his studio, The Odditorium. We talked about coming back in the future and working on a project together. Luckily, the stars aligned when Nike called months later and we just so happened to be heading back to Portland. Perfect timing.”
“Always On” is a Nike Sportswear campaign highlighting the lives of a variety of athletes, coupling them with exclusive music tracks to tell the diverse stories – on and off-court in and out of the studio, in all aspects of their daily lives. For moreinformation, visit www.nikesportswear.com.
