YOU’RE ALL I NEED TONIGHT is the first music video created by Matthew & Gunnar Nelson in over 15 years. It is the first single to be released from the critically acclaimed new album “Lightning Strikes Twice” from Frontiers Records scheduled for release in Europe on November 5th, and in the U.S. in February 2011 from Frontiers Records USA. “Lightning Strikes Twice” is a sequel to NELSON’s classic multi-platinum debut album, “After the Rain”.

YOU’RE ALL I NEED TONIGHT captures the melodic rock signature NELSON sound and harmonies from the twin lead front men and songwriters performing at the top of their game. A-list stage performance led by Matthew Nelson and featuring backing musicians Juke Kartel, provide the perfect compliment to the powerful lead vocals of Gunnar Nelson, whose stellar vocal performance ignites the screen.

NELSON went back to their roots in Hollywood and music television shooting the music video in September. The video provides a simple, stripped down, clean white background – with no fancy effects or staging -- only guitars and harmonies. “Gunnar and I felt we needed to let the music speak for itself which is why we went for simplicity”, says Matthew. Adds Gunnar, “Music videos with all their embellished imagery brought NELSON and their songs to the attention of the world back in 1990. Now we hope it’s the song and the music itself that will bring the attention back to NELSON.”
