Lauv released his new single “Paris in the Rain” on November 17th.
After the release of his previous successful records, the American singer/songwriter continues to assemble the pieces of his project entitled “I met you when I was 18″.
The project portrays a chapter in Lauv’s life where he shares his personal feelings and emotions through songs and stories. Originally from California, the singer/songwriter/producer moved to NYC at the age of 18. It was a time where he didn’t know what he wanted to be and do in this world. But it was also where he fell in love for the first time.
“I did the only thing I knew how to do and turn my feelings into songs and share them. But the songs have been out of order. I didn’t realize it then, and the truth is I’m still figuring it out, but there’s a thread and all I know is I want to share it with you guys the same way I’ve been piecing it together myself.”, revealed Lauv.
Lauv describes this story as a puzzle where he puts the pieces back together. As his puzzle still remain incomplete, his songs are being collected in one single Spotify playlist called “I met you when I was 18″.
“Paris in the Rain” has been added as the second record of his story.
The song was inspired by the movie Midnight in Paris, released in 2011. The Woody Allen movie ends with two characters walking by the Seine. As it starts raining, they learn that they share the love of Paris in the rain.
The jazz-influenced record showcases Lauv’s ability to write romantic stories through memorable melodies.
Directed by Chase Smith, the video captures Lauv in the middle of an empty road in Paris, Texas.
The story-teller released his debut EP Lost In The Light in 2015, which included the successful record “The Other”.
Along with his projects, Lauv co-wrote the golden-certified Pop single “No Promises” by Cheat Codes and Demi Lovato as well as “Boys” by Charli XCX.
With over 42 million views on his Youtube channel and over 20 million streams on Spotify, Lauv’s songs and visuals perfectly reflect the artist he truly is. By sharing his vulnerability and honesty with the world, he creates a personal connection with the audience.
Currently on tour with Ed Sheeran, Lauv featured on DJ Snake’s latest single “A Different Way” and will be going on his first solo worldwide tour in 2018.
