Just days after Cody Simpson dropped “Flower,” the laid back track from his upcoming independent album, he’s already released the music video!
As we said about the track previously, Cody’s new direction is in the singer-songwriter lane of Jason Mraz and John Mayer, and the video provides quite a similar image. The opening scene shows Cody and his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, relaxing while he plays guitar. As the music builds, we’re taken to Cody and his band playing on stage. Rather than impressive light shows and a dance pop beat, the video and song shine a light on Cody’s guitar-playing and natural vocal abilities.
“It’s the first time I’ve had the creative freedom to do what I want,” Simpson told Rolling Stone about his new direction. “I needed the independence.”
Cody Simpson’s album Free is expected to be out in the second quarter of 2015.
