Anderson East, “Girlfriend”
Anderson East is a camp counselor at Camp Grandview in his just-released music video for “Girlfriend.” It’s the third song fans got to hear from East’s new album Encore prior to its release on Jan. 12. The clip itself is quirky, with a distinct style (think Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom), and follows the budding relationship between two young campers … and the boy who wants what he can’t have. Or can he?
“Girlfriend” was written by East, Dave Cobb, Aaron Raitiere and Avicii and is one of eleven songs on his new record, which was produced by Cobb.
Kip Moore, “Last Shot”
“Last Shot” is Kip Moore‘s newest single from his newest record, Slowheart, which follows Up All Night and Wild Ones. The song’s new lyric video, unsurprisingly, primarily lets the track’s lyrics do the talking. It’s shot in grainy black and white, with the lyrics are scrawled in a bright white text throughout. The background images feature Moore in his element onstage and backstage, and they add energy to the tune.
Jordan Davis, “Singles You Up”
Jordan Davis‘ music video for “Singles You Up” was filmed in El Paso, Texas, and directed by Eric Ryan Anderson. Lo-fi smartphone footage is juxtaposed with clear and crisp professional clips, giving viewers a quality visual experience with a very personal aesthetic.
“I didn’t want to play it too much to what the song says, and tried to shoot something that looked really cool and well done,” Davis tells Rolling Stone. “I love the wide open spaces. I love the desert. I don’t know if I’d ever want to live in West Texas, but I sure like going out there. Whenever I had the initial idea of what I wanted [the video] to look like, I was seeing exactly what West Texas is.”
Davis wrote “Singles You Up,” his first country radio single, with Justin Ebach and Steven Dale Jones.
