Model-turned-singer Zander Bleck is back with a new track “Mercy Me,” and Billboard premieres the flirty video today (April 10).
The video opens with Bleck and a mysterious love interest in a dimly-lit laundry room, where Bleck suddenly gets sucked into a black-and-white world where he becomes a true rock star — full band, neon lights and all. Yet, there’s a sense of silliness in the ’80s-inspired video, something Bleck says was intentional.
”I wanted to pay homage to some of my favorite classic videos. From Aha, Paul Simon, to Peter Gabriel where it was more about fun and less about taking yourself too seriously.” Bleck says of the video. “I’m thrilled how it came out and sets the tone for what’s to come.”
The New Jersey Native got his start as a model before releasing his self-titled EP in 2009. “Mercy Me” is his first single of 2018, and follows the success of 2017’s “Battlecall.”
