Song will appear on singer/producer's Oct. 15th debut album, 'Optimist.'
Finneas is stone alone in the COVID-haunted video for, "A Concert Six Months From Now," the first single from the producer/songwriter's upcoming debut album. The 24 year-old singer announced the name and release date of his first full length on Thursday morning (August 5), revealing that Optimist will drop on Oct. 15.
"Hope you enjoy, I can't wait for you to hear the whole record," he said in a tweet before debuting the Sam Bennett-directed video, in which he emerges onto the storied stage to the shouts of an invisible crowd. Squinting through the spotlights, he meanders around as the song's gentle acoustic strumming ushers in his tale of a love that spans the years, lingering, but never quite fading away.
"2011 You stole my heart here/ And I couldn't listen/ To that band for years/ Till that night last summer/ When you reappeared/ Forgot how bad I wanted this," he sings while stumbling through the blinking stage lights in a hushed tone after an opening verse that hints at the current anxiety about slowly re-emerging from our pandemic bubble.
