John Vento And Nied’s Hotel Band Follow 9/11 Tribute With Updated, Remastered Fan Favorite

Music veteran, John Vento and his longtime blue-collar rock co-horts in Nied’s Hotel Band have been releasing their impressive catalog of music since 2004, when Vento and Buddy Hall released “Nied’s Hotel Archives” and 2007’s “Nied’s Hotel.” Three more full-lengths would follow, including 2007’s “The Way That You Roll,” 2014’s “One Night Stand,” and the 2020 compilation, “Nied’s Hotel 2.0.” The latter two included the original version of the fan-favorite, “We’re Just Fine.” Now, Vento and company have updated the track with newly recorded backing vocals and a crisp new remaster.

On March 18th, 2022, MTS Records will release Nied’s Hotel Band’s new version of “We’re Just Fine.” The song was written by John Vento and Tim Hadley, with production by Hadley and Klint Macro, and additional production by David Granati. It is the follow-up to the band’s #1 international iTunes chart hit, the 9/11 tribute, “The Day the Lady Cried.”

“The track really showed off the band’s R&B roots, but it never received the traction that was expected,” said Vento. “It was always a fan favorite, especially at live shows. Over the past few months the band decided to dust it off a bit, add some more background vocals and remaster the track for a new 2022 release.”

Nied’s Hotel Band

Lyrics – “We’re Just Fine”

You’ve been through some bad stuff lately
But you worked it all out
You’re headin’ for some good times baby
And there aint’ no doubt

Now a brand new day, brings a brand new light
Throw that shit in the sea, leave it all behind
Unlock the love in your heart, just let it shine
Sing it out to the world, you’re just fine

You’re just fine now baby
Fine now baby

Most people said that we weren’t gonna make it
But we proved em’ all wrong
They hit us hard, and then they tried to break us
But our love was way too strong

It was lookin’ bad in the eye of the storm
Winds of power and might meant to do you harm
Through the love of great friends we stood arm and arm
Sing it out to the world you’re just fine

You’re just fine now baby
Fine now baby

I know there’s nights when you feel so alone girl
We live two separate lives
But remember those nights when we were hand and hand
I’ll always be by your side, baby I’m your man

I’ll never let ya down, gonna take a stand

Sing out to the world, that we’re just fine

We’re just fine
Were just doing fine now baby
We’re Just doing fine
