Kicking off a new chapter to his music career, Hunter Hayes is moving forward with the release of his new video for “Yesterday’s Song.”
The video, directed by Ryan Hamblin, shows hunter trapped in a house of mirrors that reflect his own image. As he searches for a way out, memories of his musical journey flash on screen. When Hunter finally breaks free, faced with a new mirror, he finds himself crashing through that mirror to shatter the past.
“You were the rooftop at the top of my lungs / Blowin’ the speakers in the back of my trunk / And you had your chance then, yeah, but I’m movin’ on / And now you’re just yesterday’s song, you’re yesterday’s song,” Hunter sings in the chorus.
“Yesterday’s Song,” written by Hunter, Barry Dean and Martin Johnson, is one of three new tracks Hunter has released from his upcoming third studio album, along with “Young Blood” and “Amen.” The uptempo rocking tune puts Hunter’s creativity on display while proving that the 25-year-old’s sound has evolved.
“Writing and recording for this new album has been a creative journey for me, both as an artist and just as a human,” Hunter said in a statement. “I’ve been learning how to let go and just let the process be, not over-thinking every little thing which is something I’m really good at. I’ve been experimenting with new sounds and stretching myself creatively more than ever before, and just embracing life, which I think you can really hear in these songs and I think that comes through visually with this video as well. ‘Yesterday’s Song’ really captures that free feeling, that joyous realization that you’re moving on and starting this fresh, new chapter.”
You can catch Hunter moving on across the country when he kicks off his 2017 Tour on March 30 at the House of Blues in Dallas.
