“We should be OK,” Jordan Bratton declares in the music video for his latest release, “Spaces,” a song from his forthcoming mixtape, Driver’s Ed, due out this fall via Rebirth Entertainment/1009 Records/RCA Records. Directed by Ben Elias and James Dayton and shot in Brooklyn, the dramatic visual brings Jordan’s storytelling to life as he highlights people and their struggles.
“Deep down I never felt like I was good enough for anybody really. Always had many unrequited love issues that took over my outcomes with companionship,” Jordan says of “Spaces. “When I was listening back to the reference, I remember thinking how oblivious I was to the signs of my heart slipping into a coma. I wasn’t aware of the fact that it was affecting me in the worst way. There is something special about this video because it isn’t very theatrical, but it still has a theme of resolution. It’s one of the most heartfelt things I’ve seen in a while and I’m not just saying that because I’m a part of it.”
On creating the vision and directing the video Ben Elias adds: “We tuned more into the track’s airy, spiritual quality, and decided that we wanted to do something more abstract. We channeled that feeling into the character of the young boy, who holds this age-old wisdom, rather than childlike innocence, as he drifts between different places and times. Hopefully, we did justice to such a heartfelt song. Cheers to Jordan and the team for giving us so much freedom with the concept.”
“Spaces,” both written and produced by Jordan, follows the previously released offerings “Pieces” and “Sunsets.”
Hailing from Long Island, NY, the 22-year-old musician is fortifying the groundwork to be music’s next breakout star in 2017.
