Carefully wrapped around a beautifully melancholic uptempo pop song, ‘Summer Sadness’ could easily be taken as a hymn to adolescence. This third single taken from Jacob Bellens’ upcoming new album ‘My Heart Is Hungry And The Days Go By So Quickly’ was written when Jacob became a father.
“I was at a new place in my life and the concept for the chorus was in many ways an attempt at finally integrating the sorrow that followed the death of my mother in my teens into my adult life”, says Jacob. The line ‘I don’t want you to come back again’ and the following sentence ‘I’m doing fine all on my own’ is both sad and oddly uplifting. It has to do with the healing of old wounds, and taking on the responsibility for your own well-being”.
A light, sugary treat with a dark, caramel core.
The video for Summer Sadness has been concepted and directed by Nis Bysted and Fryd Frydendahl.
