Coming off a Golden Globe ‘Best Actor’ nomination for his star-making lead role in Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver – an action thriller featuring choreography in which the actor’s movements and actions synchronize with its soundtrack – Ansel Elgort solidifies his triple threat status as actor, singer and dancer with his latest single “Supernova,” out now.
Ansel’s unique blend of talent, tenacity, charisma and dedication to his craft that led to his assent in the acting space is translating to his music career as well.
This song is accompanied by a new music video by award-winning video director Colin Tilley who has worked with artists including Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.
“With Supernova I made something that I knew I’d want to hear. Finally for the first time with my music it really feels like it’s really coming from me. I was able to let my subconscious take over and never second-guess any artistic impulse while writing. I wrote this song behind the mic in the booth in the same session Scott Storch and Angel Lopez laid down the production. We were able to vibe off each other while Scott, Angel and I continued to tweak the production during the singing and writing process. Mostly this song was done in one session.
I’m especially excited about my music project at this moment. Can’t wait to share more of the new stuff.
Colin did an amazing job making a video that feels very current.” -Ansel Elgort
