The artist formerly known as Jaden Smith, now just Jaden, is back with a new music video dripped in summertime vibes for “Cabin Fever.” The track, produced by BURNS, came alongside the announcement that his third installment of The Cool Cafe: Cool Tape collection is right around the corner.
“Cabin Fever” is an indie record by Jaden, and he does the sound justice. It’s upbeat yet reflective and it’s his self-proclaimed love song for quarantine. He drives up the coast of Pacific Coast Highway in a vintage car with its top down featuring a custom paint job splattered with multi-colored geometric patterns. The aesthetic matches his favorite pinkish blue gradient that occurs only at sunset. He dances alone, asks his crush if she wants to hang through cardboard signage in a scene reminiscent of Say Anything only to get turned down. His next project otherwise known as CTV3 will be his first full-length since 2019’s ERYS.
“I just wanted to be able to really listen into different types of style of music, and pull in different inspirations that I could use for my own music, whether that be vocal harmonies, whether that be different types of pedals on guitar, whether that be playing guitar in general, you know?” Jaden revealed in a recent interview with Zane Lowe of Apple Music. “It’s like, I came and we did an interview for Iris, and I played that one song on guitar a little bit, that was me messing around. And now I’m just, through this quarantine I’m just trying to get better and better and better. I’m still nowhere where I want to be, being able to play guitar. But the fact that I can play a few songs and I can do this, and I can practice singing on guitar, that’s what I really care about. Because now, I can have a personal connection with the instrument, where it helps me to express emotions.”
