It’s been a while since Trevor Decker News has featured the talented artist Cloe Wilder. The 15-year-old singer has been sharing her profound music for a few years and continues to deliver songs that have themes wise beyond her years. Wilder released her debut EP Teenage Lullabies which features the song “In The Next Life”. Now the singer has shared a music video for the track.
For the music video, Cloe reunited with director Bobby Hanaford who has previously directed Wilder’s other popular videos including “It’s True,” “Call Me if You Need Me,” and “I Wanna Be Alone with You.”
Filmed in Lancaster, California, the ethereal video portrays a beautiful, emotive and melancholy picture of Wilder singing about the loss and love she has for her late grandfather. “I didn’t want to say goodbye / I love you, but this life’s unkind / You’re not mine to keep / So I made a deal with the other side / So I can find you in the next life.”
“This is an entirely alternative video from what I had originally planned to use. We shot this in one-take between other shots for fun, but it ended up being my favorite,” explains Wilder. “It’s the last one off of my debut (“Teenage Lullabies”) EP, so it feels nice to close with something this simple. It feels a little more like me. I’m so grateful for the warm welcome that this project has received. Thank you, thank you, thank you. There is much more where that came from.”
