Twin Shadow, ‘The One’ – New Video
George Lewis Jr., the suave, motorcycle-riding '80s-pop revivalist behind Twin Shadow, has released a video for 'The One,' the latest single off his acclaimed 'Confess' album. Unlike Lewis' action-packed mini-movie for 'Five Seconds,' this one is a simple, self-shot black-and-white affair filled with scenes from the singer's everyday life. Fittingly, the version of the song heard in the clip is a stripped-down rendition recorded for the KCRW radio show 'Morning Becomes Eclectic.'
"While out on our Ton Up Tour a fan approached me with a heavy observation and question about the song 'The One,'" Lewis says in a press release. "He said, 'George I am confused by the lyrics in your songs on Confess, particularly on the song 'The One,' you seem torn between honoring some one who cares about you and someone you can't have, the whole record seems like this, don't you think it's confusing. I mean, you are telling someone there is something wrong with them but you'll go with them anyway?' To which i replied 'Yes its very f****** confusing isn't it.' As I thought about it weeks after and while making this video I realized again what Confess meant for me. It was a chance to be totally honest, and say that nothing is perfect, but faith in someone who gives themselves to you is very real and very beautiful."
