Ryan Follese has released a new music video for his track "Float Your Boat."

The video comes just as much of the U.S. is waving goodbye to hot weather and days at the lake, but that doesn't keep Follese from celebrating all things summertime, from mixing cocktails and hanging out on the dock to, of course, spending some time on the water itself.

"Float Your Boat" is the first single off of the singer's debut self-titled EP. Follese co-wrote the track with friend Cameron Montgomery, his parents (Keith and Adrienne) and his brother Jamie.

"Cameron played this guitar part. He played the first two bits of it, and it was really cool, and we liked it," Follese tells The Boot of writing the song. "Then he hit this super-weird note, this blue note, which is a jazzier kind of note. He did that, and everybody in the room was like, 'Whoa.' He thought he had done something so wrong, and we were like, 'No, we love that.' My brother said, 'It reminds me of something like floating or something like that.' I was like, 'I just wrote down a title in my notepad the other day that was 'Float Your Boat.'”

While the video focuses on the literal side of the song, Follese says that "Float Your Boat" is about more than spending time in watercraft -- it's about making sure that whatever you're doing with your life makes you happy.

"We wrote it from the perspective of living your life and doing what you want and doing what makes you happy, because, truthfully, life goes quick, and if you’re not doing what makes you happy, then you’re wasting your time. That was how the concept came together," he says.

Follese's family helped pen all six tracks on his recently-released EP, which is available for download via Amazon or iTunes.
