Following the Halloween delivery of his GOTH ANGEL SINNER EP, a new single in support of Lil Peep‘s next posthumous project, Everybody’s Everything, has emerged. This time around, Lil Peep’s record label is unveiling a Mezzy-directed visual in support of one of Everybody’s Everything 19 cuts, “Belgium.” Notably, the clip for “Belgium” follows Peep as he tours his way around Europe.
“Artists’ lives are chaotic and wrought with pressure from all sides, but that day in Ghent, Belgium was one of the only times I had where I can say that I truly got to know Gus,” reads an official statement from “Belgium” director Mezzy, who calls “Belgium” a “very special track” and takes to a press release to reveal the back-story behind the record’s new visual. “On the flight in, I interviewed him and he spoke about how the Gothic architecture of the town was very calming to him. Later, on our way to soundcheck we passed by this amazing castle, and we were both immediately struck by it. Wanted to wander inside, but it was closed. I suggested we go back the next day, so we woke up early to go see it. But yet again, it was closed. So we loitered around town and smoked by the castle until everyone else joined us at McDonald’s. In that time we really just talked and connected.”
“I was never able to ask him why he named the song after Belgium,” Mezzy adds, switching subjects to the narrative and themes of Lil Peep’s latest release. “But sitting here thinking about it now, I don’t think I had to because it was very special to me and clearly special to him and that is all that matters.”
