Freya Ridings released an emotional new music video for her song "You Mean the World to Me" on Friday (March 1). The visual is directed by Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey and stars her castmate Maisie Williams.
"I think Freya's voice is undeniable in it's sort of storytelling," Headey told Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beat 1 Radio about her directorial debut. "When I heard the song, I just thought of family, and then I spoke to Freya, and she said she wrote it about family. And then, the story, basically, kind of grew a little bit, and it's pretty universal in that sometimes things don't always work out, and people don't stay together, and kids are very insightful."
Williams portrays an older version of the daughter who gets into an argument with the father before finding resolution, all while Ridings passionately sings, "'Cause I know I don't let you see/ But you mean the world to me/ And I know that I can be pretty mean/ But you mean the world to me."
