Today, Our Lady Peace release a brand new video for their song, Drop Me In The Water. The track comes from Somethingness, Volume 1 – the first half of the band’s new two-volume series – while the video is the first “episode” of a video series that they have created. With some serious cinematic value, the series features YouTube star, Matthew Santoro.
“This was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of my career. As a long time fan of OLP it was truly a privilege to be a part of the visuals for such amazing music,” says Santoro. Vocalist, Raine Maida adds, “The Somethingness series of videos explores the personal stories that happen every day, all around us. Matt did a great job at allowing us to view these though his lens.”
Maida continues, “The songs on Somethingness are working. We’ve had the unique opportunity to play them live before their release to amazing crowd reaction. The irony is, not since Clumsy, have we seen such overwhelmingly positive reaction so this tour is the perfect pairing between old and new.” Watch Drop Me In The Water below.
Somethingness, Volume 1 is presently available via iTunes and Spotify – featuring Hiding Place For Hearts, Falling Into Place, Nice To Meet You, and the new single, Drop Me In The Water. The completion of the album, Volume 2 (which includes Ballad of A Poet – a heartfelt tribute to friend, Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip, who passed recently) is due out by the end of the year.
Our Lady Peace’s Clumsy, released in 1997 via Columbia Records, bore the Hot 100 Airplay hit singles, SuperMan’s Dead, Clumsy, and 4AM. The album attained Platinum status in the US and Diamond status in the band’s native Canada. Our Lady Peace’s current US tour is a celebration of 20 years of great music, starting with Clumsy and including all their hits over the years, along with new music from Somethingness.
