LP has shared the fourth single from their upcoming album Churches with the release of a music video for “Goodbye,” a soul-soothing and cathartic new track that taps into the singer/songwriter’s penchant for big folk-pop anthems. Between its euphorically buoyant medley and LP’s characteristically piercing wails, “Goodbye” soars ecstatically as a purifying act — one that teaches you to let go of everything you can do without. LP has always excelled at penning emotionally sincere lyricisms and disguising them behind impossibly catchy hooks and chorus lines that you can’t help but howl from the heart when you sing along to and “Goodbye” is one more feather in their glorious curls.
The music video for the single, directed by Stephen “Norswrthy” Schofield, captures the spirit of “Goodbye” in monochromatic blacks and whites as LP and company travailing the coastline at first via car, then boat. When the video suddenly snaps into color — revealing an incredibly beautiful orange sunset on the open water — the song reaches its height and a ukelele weilding LP really lets loose with that perfect croon of theirs.
“‘Goodbye’ is a blast for the soul. A spring cleaning to free myself and hopefully others from the shackles of my own mind. The light is always there if you want it. I definitely want it,” LP said of the song. “The video for ‘Goodbye’ feels like that time period after you make a big decision when you don’t know where life is going but you feel hopeful and maybe a little scared and thrilled at the same time. Being on a boat with friends was a moment of new perspectives and clarity for me. I hope this song and this video are a breath of fresh air for anyone feeling like they need to clear their head and embark on a new journey.”
