Jennifer Nettles tosses away pain with a buoyant melody and direct lyrics throughout the new music video for her single “Hey Heartbreak.”
In the Shane Drake directed scenes, the stunning entertainer releases all of the memories and sorrow of the past to set herself free.
“Who can’t relate to a good breakup song?” expressed Jennifer. “The fun part is that there are all kinds of breakup songs. You could be Adele and you could be heartbroken and down. Or you could be ‘Hey Heartbreak’ that is super fun and triumphant and almost like an anthem for freedom. You’re really moving past the sadness and healing.”
Jennifer also shared behind-the-scenes footage from the California shoot location. From frolicking on the beach to taking herself on a much-deserved date, she doesn’t let melancholy hinder her happiness.
“The whole idea here is that she is letting go of a heartbreak,” said Shane about the concept. “She’s letting go of all the things that make you feel down – make you feel constricted. We decided to take positive approach towards ourselves where Jennifer can have Santa Barbara to recharge and re-energize.”
“Hey Heartbreak” is an anchor track featured on Jennifer’s sophomore solo album PLAYING WITH FIRE(Big Machine Records).
