Listen to Jim Croce’s ‘Tomorrow’s Gonna Be a Brighter Day’ from SEAL Team, Season 4, Ep. 3

Iconic American folk singer songwriter Jim Croce’s ‘Tomorrow’s Gonna Be a Brighter Day‘ was one of the tracks played on the new episode of SEAL Team yesterday — SEAL Team, Season 4, Episode 3, “The New Normal“, which aired on CBS on December 9th, 2020.

The song was heard as Davis and Sonny are at the bar drowning their sorrows. The song continues playing after Davis leaves, and as Clay appears and it becomes obvious to both that Bravo team is done.

Jim Croce’s ‘Tomorrow’s Gonna Be a Brighter Day‘ was released on the singer’s third studio album You Don’t Mess Around with Jim in 1972 via ABC Records.

An event that happened after the album had been originally turned down by more than 40 other record labels.

The album spawned two singles —  the title track, and ‘Operator (That’s Not The Way It Feels)’.

A third single ‘Time in a Bottle’ was then released a year later soon after Croce’s death, and immediately shot to the #1 spot on three different Billboard charts.

The album itself’ became an enormous hit for Croce as well, spending a total of 93 weeks on the charts in the United States. Many of those units were sold after Croce was tragically killed a year after the album was released in a plane crash at just 30 years of age.
