LOS ANGELES, CA (June 3, 2022) – Following last week’s release of his highly-anticipated new single, pop singer-songwriter Christian French releases the music video for “golden years,” out now via Disruptor Records/RCA Records.
The visual companion to his latest record, which initially gained traction on social media after Christian performed the song on TikTok and garnered over a million views online, the “golden years” video follows Christian and his group of friends as they go through life. From sun-soaked days at the beach to road trips across the country, the video captures the memories and little moments that we often take for granted.
“The ‘golden years’ music video is a collection of good memories from the past, taking you back to what it felt like in late high school, early college – having your first taste of freedom, running around town doing stupid shit with your friends, and falling in love for the first time,” says Christian of the inspiration behind the video. “A lot of the video was shot on 16mm film to capture that ‘in the past’ feel, and all of it leads back to the idea of nostalgia – a longing for things to feel how they used to. My current life doesn’t feel like it’s ‘adding up’ and it feels like my golden years are slipping away from me.”
