Grammy Award-winning triple threat Sam Martin has debuted an intense new single "Sabotage” and accompanying video, premiering on Billboard today (Jan. 18). The track will appear on the singer-songwriter-producer’s forthcoming debut album Alpha Omega.

The somber video sees the lead character transition from childhood to adulthood, all the while demonstrating the effects of a tumultuous relationship with his father. The video then ends abruptly, teasing the next chapter of the tale.

Indeed, Martin tells Billboard that the visual for “Sabotage” serves as one episode in the story he plans to tell through Alpha Omega. “It begins at the end of this character’s innocence, allowing the viewer to see where his anger comes from and then how it plays out in his life,” Martin says. “With a need to calm himself down, he finds himself seduced by drugs and falling in love with a girl he meets.”

Martin’s Alpha Omega is due in March, and will be released alongside a self-directed and edited short film, of which “Sabotage” offers a first look at.

Check out the video for “Sabotage” below.
