Jeffrey James Releases Emotive Video For Stripped-Down Version of New Track “Like Love”
Rising pop-crooner, Jeffery James, has released the music video for his latest single, “Like Love,” exclusively with IndustryMe. The song was introduced as a double-release with the infectious FutureTrips Remix leading as a quintessential summertime groove and the original version, serving as an emotive stripped-down piano ballad.
“The further we got into the writing process on “Like Love” the more I knew that I wanted to have two versions of the song,” says Jeffery. “An uptempo version, for anyone who can relate, but wants to dance it all away. And then a more stripped down version for anyone who wants to just be sad and take the time with their feelings.”
Lyrically, the song connects with personal heartbreak and for the video, Jeffrey wanted to evoke the kind of solemn and reflective headspace relatable to anyone whose gone through an unexpected break-up. Directed by Andy Tomlinson and shot in Nashville with just a piano against an ambient glow, the “Like Love” video takes us to a place of beautiful vulnerability.
Jeffrey co-wrote “Like Love” with Natalia Malo (Malo teaming up with Luke Sego and Lex Lipsitz to create the FutureTrips Remix of the track) while discussing the concept of an abrupt ending to a relationship. Taking from Jeffery's personal experience, the song's palpable message is universally familiar against the melodic sound of the piano and Jeffery's captivating vocal.
