Echosmith Announces New Studio Album “Lonely Generation” out Jan 10 // Releases New Video for Single “Lonely Generation”

Today, multi-platinum trio Echosmith have announced their new studio album Lonely Generation, set for release on January 10th. They have also unveiled the music video for the title track and brand new single “Lonely Generation” directed by Danny Drysdale (The Killers, which happens to be Echosmith’s all-time favorite band.) The “Lonely Generation” video also serves as a sneak peek to the 11 additional music videos that the band has coming to support each song on the album – CLICK HERE to watch. Inspired by the song’s message about how lonely and isolating it can feel in our hyper-connected digital world, serving as a reminder to focus on real-life connection with each other, the colorful and quirky video follows the band as they encounter people stuck in the digital world in various settings, from an aerobics class to the beach, and even to the Wild West. The bouncy alt-pop anthem, features a glistening neon beat, a sunny chant and acoustic guitar, and is the first taste of the band’s sophomore album.

“When Echosmith first reached out to me to see if I would consider directing a video for each song on their new album, fascinated, I asked to hear the music first,” says Danny Drysdale, the video’s director, “Needless to say I was really moved by the tracks and was flooded with so many ideas. The songwriting and the emotion and message of the album just drew me in. I hurried and called them to say I was hooked, ‘let’s do this thing!’ When we got into the weeds of shooting and the nitty gritty creative, it was a miracle to find that we see the world in many of the same colorful, cool, absurd, and beautiful ways. We shot all these videos in various parts of Utah with an incredible team, and I gotta say that working with this band has been one of my most favorite projects. I can’t wait for you to go see the finished videos very soon and then direct the next 12. Hint, hint.”
