Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically?
I went out to Thailand last March with my producer to write an album. The 3rd night I’m there, I go out with my friends and I meet one of my friends roommates. This beautiful girl (Girl on the mural behind Amoeba Music in LA). She was wearing a grey beanie the night i met her and that was the basis of the song. I chose to visualize this one because I feel when you see and read the lyrics, it starts to paint a much clearer story. Sometimes when I listen to a song, I don’t fully grasp all the lyrics. I wanted to take my fans on the exact journey I went through.
What was the inspiration behind this video (visuals, storyline, etc.)?
I told my videographer the story of the song. How we met, the magic that happened during my time there. We always met in the evening and there was something so dreamy and mysterious about it all. I thought the lyric video did a great job of capturing that vibe.
What was the process of making this video?
The process was quite easy. My videographer is a good friend of mine so he already understands that i love simple, yet impactful images. The first version had an orange, desert vibe to it. I told him to make look like it’s was night time, and he changed the entire color scheme and voila! Grey Beanie
