Video: Hayden James – Just A Lover
Singer, songwriter and producer Hayden James, today returns with an official video to accompany his infectious jam “Just A Lover”. Out via Future Classic, the video can be viewed below.
Directed by Leigh NewmanofSplintr, the video shows an encounter between two lovers in a dingy American motel. With dreamlike sequences intertwined with passionate scenes between the two characters, the video serves as the perfect accompaniment to a track that pleads and croons for a temporary lover.
With the audio premiering on Stereogum last month, the track made the rounds in the blogosphere and beyond, charting on Hype Machine and turning heads with it’s intricate percussion and catchy vocals. A follow up to his runaway hit, “Something About You”, “Just A Lover” now stands at over 2 million plays on Spotify alone.
A remix package for “Just A Lover” has also been revealed – featuring remixes from Pomo, Karma Kid and Frits Wentlink. Producing for the likes of Mac Miller and Anderson .Paak, and with previous remixes for Tinashe and Janet Jackson under his belt, Montreal whizz Pomo’s sleek spin fuses his signature funk and house inspired beats with Hayden’s original. Meanwhile British producer Karma Kid, twists up the structure and BPM for a fresh, heavier take, and Dutch lo-fi house connoisseur Frits Wentlink delivers a wonky, textured reimagining to keep everyone moving.
Set to complete his run of Australian and Asia shows at a sold-out Metro Theatre in Sydney tomorrow night, and with a mammoth 19 date US tour due to kick off in October, the only way seems to be up for the trailblazing Hayden James.
