American Star Paris Jackson Reveals Her Debut Single “Let Down” Featured along with Official Music Video
Paris debut single ‘let down‘ marks her inaugural solo release for Republic Records. It also paves the way for her first full-length album, Wilted, arriving on November 13, 2020.
The new single has written by Paris herself and produced by Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull, “Let Down” tells a story of heartbreak through alternative-folk and singer-songwriter sounds and influences.
Glassy acoustic strumming gives way to her lilting delivery as the soundscape envelopes airy synths and lithe guitar leads. Pensive lyrical poetry takes hold as Paris paints a picture of “eyes painted black, tragic paperback,” before she admits, “You were my all, and now, I fall to the ground.”
‘Let Down‘ official music video translates this spirit in a nostalgic vignette punctuated by gentle psychedelic wonder, and a shocking end. The stunning visuals also offer a nod to legendary designer Alexander McQueen, a personal inspiration to Paris, who wore a stunning archive piece from his Spring/Summer 2007 collection (Look 20) in the video.
Executive produced by Eli Roth and directed by Meredith Alloway, the video premiered today following a live Q&A on YouTube with fans.
Earlier this year, she unveiled The Soundflowers with a self-titled five-track EP, which generated over 1 million cumulative streams and counting. Shining light on collaboration, influences, and activism, the project outlined an array of eclectic sonic endeavors while welcoming listeners with a unique sense of experimentation.
