“Worked with a super talented director and an amazing team that legit made some brilliant art,” Alejandro wrote on social media regarding the accompanying music video.
“Poison is a very special song to me,” Alejandro shared in another post. “I had to make sure it was perfect while recording it. From everyone involved with the music video and song, I just wanted to say THANK YOU!”
Directed and produced by Le3ay and assisted by Jorge Hernandez, the “Poison” video uses mirrors as a metaphor. Maybe we aren’t really looking at each other directly, or clearly, the message seems to be. The lush background strings lend a 60’s pop vibe to the tune.
“Face to face you know//That I’ve been needing you//To cause this pain//Out loud within the truth//So tell me tell me tell me lover//If I’m the one you need,” go the lyrics. “Oh yes your love is so//Your love is still poisoning me//Oh yes your love is so//Your love is still poisoning me.”
The upcoming album was produced largely by Alejandro and recorded in nine days at LA’s Village Studios and Capitol Studios. This fall, Alejandro joins X Ambassadors as direct support on their The Beautiful Liar tour, kicking off Oct. 15th at San Diego’s House of Blues.
