Keeping up with our premiere Friday, we are now joining forces with talented artist Ben Zaidi for the release of his new music video for “When I Was Alone,” the video captures the thesis of the song in a nutshell as we see Zaidi stripping his heart out in the middle of nowhere, a landscape of loneliness and beauty.
About the song, Ben comments:
“Of all the songs on the album, none are as deeply important to me as ‘When I Was Alone’. if Abandonism was an essay, ‘When I Was Alone’ would be the thesis statement. ‘”When I was alone / I was free…. I used to think that I just wanted more / but now I think it’s my disease”‘ This is the natural conclusion of a life worshipping independence. Total freedom, and it’s inevitable partner--loneliness.”
