Our girl Lena Stone dropped the music video for her new single “Can’t Think Straight” last week, and it’s not the typical one you’d expect.
The visual showcases Stone alone in a recording studio with illuminating shades of blue and purple. The reasoning behind it? To let the personal lyrics do the talking.
“One of the things I want to show off is that there’s actually a lot of depth to the songwriting and storytelling part of it. It’s about the summer that I moved to Nashville and that was the year that I fell in love the first time and then got my heartbroken for the first time. I really wanted to show off the lyric. We thought it would be cool to get all the players together who played on the original record and get in the studio and record a live version that’s a little bit more acoustic and show off the lyrics of the song, the story of the song. While we recorded that, we brought in Stormlight Pictures, who are the video production company that I work with. They filmed it, and we had these awesome purple and blue, all of my colored lights and the fog machine going. We really wanted to show off the story of the song,” Stone explained to Sounds Like Nashville.
