It’s been a little bit since we’ve heard from the Plain White T’s, but they’re finally back with a new single and video for “Spaghetti Tattoo”. “Tattoo” is an acoustic love song in which frontman Tom Higgenson recounts a memorable first date.
“I went on a great first date with a girl I’d been talking to and DM’ng with for a while,” says Higgenson. “We laughed and drank and got lost in the moment until we realized that we were the last two people in the restaurant! It felt so good to be out again after those crazy last couple years, and the date left me filled with excitement and optimism about love and life.”
It was this date that inspired him to write “Spaghetti Tattoo.” He found it particularly amusing that his date had a spaghetti tattoo on her arm—hence, the song’s title. As he explains in an interview, “She had this spaghetti tattoo on her arm, which was such a fun and silly detail, so I had to include that in the song.” The accompanying music video follows the band members as puppets, paying homage to famous moments in movie history. It’s one hell of an adorable video and one that matches the song’s incredibly sweet premise.
