After signing with Cherrytree last year and netting time on the road supporting Ingrid Michaelson alongside Jukebox The Ghost, New York-based alt-rockers Secret Someones return today with the clip for their new track “Let You Go,” the next taste from their forthcoming debut full length album, out on Oct. 2 via Cherrytree Records.
The foursome — Bess Rogers, Hannah Winkler, Lelia Broussard, and drummer Zach Jones — were able to work with talented directors, Reid Rolls and Nabil Nafar. The group had previously worked with Rolls on a photo shoot for their first EP I Won’t Follow, and wanted to have his photographer’s eye involved with the making of the video. “It offers a different tone, color palette, and overall style,” Rogers told Billboard.

Following up last year’s EP and recent infectious single “Headfirst,” “Let You Go” is about learning how to let go of a relationship when there’s still a great deal of fondness and love present.
“It fits with a lot of the themes of our record, but it was actually written before we became a band,” Rogers added. “Lelia was struggling with the decision to end a relationship, and one night she came over to my place to talk. After a few whiskeys and a few tears, I confessed to her that I had recently started writing a song about her situation. I played it for her and after a few more whiskeys and tears we decided to start working on it. We ended up staying up that whole night writing and then recording a demo of it with our producer (and my husband) Chris Kuffner. It was a really special night and the song came so easily. It’s still one of our favorites.”
