(New York – Nov 1, 2017) Today, songwriter and DJ/Producer 3LAU teamed up with creative director and travel videographer Rob Strok to take music listeners on a journey through breathtaking natural landscapes with the release of the music video for 3LAU’s latest single, “Star Crossed.” “Star Crossed” was first released in September via 3LAU’s not for profit dance music label BLUME, which raises money for varying charitable causes with each release. The money raised from “Star Crossed” will go toward aiding hurricane relief in Houston & Puerto Rico. View the track’s music video here.
Upon initial release Billboard described “Star Crossed” by stating: “Electronic drums echo into the night, synthetic bass lines skips across the floor, and shooting stars streak the sky in rainbow-colored streams… This is a jam that hits the ballad sweet spot.” The song has since gone on to gain over 1.6 million streams on Spotify.
In creating the music video, 3LAU and Rob Strok were inspired by a quotation that all millennials can relate to from Henry David Thoreau: “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” The video follows a male (3LAU) and female (Brooke Maroon) protagonist as they journey across scenic Kauai. While they travel along a similar path, their paths ultimately never overlap. Whether that is because they represent a relationship that ended due to timing or one that never began because it never got the chance to start is for the viewer to decide. As the song’s lyrics state, they are not star-crossed lovers, they never crossed and so in the video both wind up finding themselves instead of each other.
“The video is meant to encourage others to explore and to enjoy the journey,” said 3LAU. “It is important to recognize the beauty in feeling lost sometimes, in life or in love.”
“Star Crossed” is just the beginning of a new creative direction that 3LAU has planned for his listeners. Known for his live energy, euphoric production, and official remixes for Rihanna, Katy Perry, & Ariana Grande, this track demonstrates a progression from electronic production to traditional instrumentation with influences ranging from M83 to Radiohead, and Sigur Rós.
Summer 2017 has been busy for the young artist, who has performed at Lollapalooza, Billboard Hot 100, EDC Vegas, Breakaway Music Festival, Veld (Toronto), Global Dance Festival (Denver), RFM Somnii (Portugal), Marenostrum (Spain), and more.
