Sure, Oliver Tree may have announced his retirement just a few days ago, but he seems to have changed his mind.
The singer songwriter unveiled his latest single, “Let Me Down,” on Tuesday (April 7), produced by Tree himself and Whethan.
The characteristically bizarre accompanying video shows the alt-rock goofball with huge headphones on, riding a scooter onto a pink set. A microphone comes down from the ceiling and shenanigans ensue. “Please don’t let me down / You better come around,” he proclaims in the chorus.
“I wrote ‘Let Me Down’ the day after I canceled my album due to corona virus” Tree said in a statement. “Canceling the release was devastating after working on this album for five years. Even though it was completely out of my control, I felt like I let a lot of people down so I made them this song as an apology. Even if I can’t drop the album, I still want my fans to know I care about them. This week I decided to film a DIY music video in my buddy’s warehouse with the help of some close friends and family. To anyone who feels let down or hurt, I ask for your forgiveness…”
“Let Me Down” follows Tree’s 2019 single “Cash Machine.” Watch the music video below.
