Stephen Puth thinks back on a past love with his new single “Look Away,” the video for which was released on Wednesday (June 26).
The cinematic visual begins in black and white, with Puth walking, then driving, along a desert road. Once it’s revealed that a woman is sitting in the passenger’s seat, the visual is spliced with color as he remembers her.
“I don’t wanna think about/ Think about you with nobody else,” Puth admits with soothing vocals. “I don’t wanna jump to these/ Jump to these conclusions, but I fell.”
The catchy pop tune marks the first writing collaboration between Stephen and his brother Charlie Puth, the singer/songwriter behind massive hits like Wiz Khalifa‘s “See You Again,” Liam Payne‘s “Bedroom Floor” and his own “Attention.” In “Look Away,” the two write about post-breakup feelings with lines like “Girl, you used to look in my eyes, now you look away,” reminiscing on what used to be.
“When we wrote ‘Look Away,’ we came to realize that before any breakup, there is that fight that ends in silence,” Stephen previously said in a release. “This song means a lot to me, not only because it’s real, but it is also the first song I’ve ever written with my brother and it pushed us both to make a meaningful story out of a typically small moment in time.”
The track follows Stephen’s debut single “Sexual Vibe” released in December 2018 and ballad “Half Gone,” the video for which debuted via Billboard in early March.
