Lauren Early shares new single/video ‘Tomorrow’
L.A.’s Lauren Early follows ‘Good Girl Bay Boy’ with an homage to Billy Corgan.
L.A.-based musician Lauren Early returns with the second single off her debut album Don’t Take My Dream Away. The track, ‘Tomorrow,’ follows ‘Good Girl Bad Boy’ and captures the zeitgeist of Smashing Pumpkins in their purest form.
“It’s very haunted and very optimistic, which I think encapsulates the album as a whole. I began writing this song at the start of my obsession with The Smashing Pumpkins. For better or worse, I really identify with Billy Corgan’s approach to music. He has such a distinct vision and toils away obsessively to see it through. That’s me and this song: A million guitars. Real cello, fake cello. Me toiling away. In hindsight, I think I wanted to make a song as good as ‘Today’ and ended up writing a song called ‘Tomorrow’ (lol).”
Inspired by a viral clip of a sunflower weathering a storm, the self-directed video contains a multitude of symbols and hidden references.
“It was taped to a red fence and surviving against all odds,” says Early. “Clearly I was going through it because I related so much with this flower. I wanted the video to have a ‘Wizard of Oz’ vibe of waking up to the news and needing to go on a journey to save yourself (or your giant viral internet flower which is symbolic of yourself).”
‘Tomorrow’ is out today. Don’t Take My Dream Away is out May 19.
