PLATINUM-certified independent singer, songwriter, producer, and pop visionary Lauv unveils new track and music video for “Drugs & The Internet” today!
The song marks the first release from the singers highly anticipated debut album titled ~how i'm feeling~, which will see him continuously rolling out singles before its release.
ALMOST THE GREATEST GIG ON EARTH will happen on August 10th at the beautiful Broadwater Parklands on the Gold Coast and promises to be the ultimate GEN X music spectacular.
It all started one fabled night with good mates, some fine wine and a hotly debated Spotify playlist. What would be the Greatest 80s Gig Ever? Some were no brainers of course… AC/DC, Bryan Adams, Human League, U2, Elton John, Bon Jovi. But then it got tricky (and a little heated).
Would Duran Duran get a bigger billing than INXS? Do we go for party boys WHAM! or soul man George Michael? Who would be our 80s Queen, Tina Turner or Madonna? And what about Rick Astley!? We gotta have Rick Astley!!!
The video, directed by Jenna Marsh (Nicki Minaj, Kanye West) sees Lauv getting pulled from reality into a digital universe. He gets trapped and loses himself to the overwhelming stimulus of a world where the internet gets brought to life. Click HERE to watch!
Speaking about the meaning behind the song and video, Lauv said, "I wrote Drugs & The Internet at a time I was struggling with feelings of extreme emptiness and depression. I wrote it as a sort of self-analysis for my obsession with the way I wanted to present myself to the world — a commentary on the world we live today. It is as much self-deprecating as it is serious and sad. It flew out of me in an hour. It felt more therapeutic than any song I’d written before. As the first song off of my album ~how i’m feeling~, it is the perfect entrance into the next phase of my life and music. I am more proud of this song and video than anything i have ever created in my life, and I’m so excited that it’s yours now."
The brand new single comes directly off the back of Lauv’s Australian tour announce, which will see the LA-based visionary land in capital cities around the country in November.
