Newly signed What Are We Doing/ Interscope Records artist Leon Else debuts his first music for the label with the premiere of the video for his new single Black Car today.
Created in collaboration with producer François Tétaz (Gotye, Kimbra, Architecture in Helsinki), the clip features actress/model Suki Waterhouse (The Divergent Series : Insurgent, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).
“The song Black Car is about the allure of materialistic things,” Else says. “The idea came to me when I was on the way to do a hike at Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles. I was in a brown car and I thought to myself, ‘I’ve got to have a black car, the blackest car you’ve ever seen.’ Because I felt like I was someone in a different car that didn’t reflect me, and that people would look at me a certain way. I wanted to have the meanest, blackest car, where people would be like, ‘Look at that fucking car.’ When you have something really materially great, people want to get to know you. That’s what I based Black Car on. ‘It’s saying, ‘I’m someone, step into my black car.’”
