Joji Releases Music Video for Melancholic Track "Die For You"
Compiled entirely from stock footage.
88rising artist Joji has released the music video for the third track of his studio album Smithereens titled “Die For You,” a sober, morning-after remembrance of a former love. Known for his melancholic ballads such as “Glimpse of Us” and “SLOW DANCING IN THE DARK,” “Die For You” delivers more deep-rooted emotions with Joji speaking truthfully about moving on.
The new music video was directed by Actual Objects, the creative studio which also did the visuals for his Smithereens tour. Encapsulating the ride, thrill, and aftermath of a relationship, the imagery is compiled entirely from stock footage, from earthy shots of crashing waves and sifting gravel to moody nighttime motorcycle rides and fireworks.
“I heard that you’re happy without me. And I hope it’s true. It kills me a little. That’s okay, ’cause I’d die for you,” sings Joji.
Take a look at the music video above. Looking forward, Joji is set to headline arena performances at Madison Square Garden in New York and The Kia Forum in Los Angeles May 6 and 13th respectively.
