Neon Hitch, 'Pink Fields': Exclusive Video Premiere
Watch the kaleidoscopic clip, which features a cameo by the late Amy Winehouse.
After launching her "Happy Neon" EP on Billboard.com in January, Neon Hitch has unveiled the official music video for the EP's standout track, "Pink Fields," premiering exclusively on Tuesday (Mar. 5). In the dreamy yet revealing video, the U.K. singer-songwriter is shown palling around with the late Amy Winehouse, whom Hitch befriended before her untimely death in 2011.
"Our boyfriends were friends back in the day, and we bonded over a bottle of Jack Daniels in a London park," Hitch says of Winehouse. "Amy has been an inspiration to everyone in the world, and she was a big inspiration to me."
Directed by PotsNPans, the "Pink Fields" video is rife with home footage of the 26-year-old, as well as striking shots of Hitch traipsing through austere fields. "Pink Fields," like the rest of Hitch's "Happy Neon" EP, was produced by Hitch and Happy Perez, and previews her forthcoming debut album, due out later this year.
"I wish I could just put my album out today for free," Hitch told Billboard last January. "It's not about the money or timing for me, but it's about the fans and the music… I'm really happy with the album, but I feel like everything happens for a reason. If the album release wasn't delayed, I would have never made this EP, and I would have never rediscovered the true self I found while making this EP."
