Calling it “one of the most ambitious things I’ve ever taken on,” American idol season 10 alum Haley Reinhart drops her “Deep Water” music video today (July 28).
The song, from the singers recent album Lo-Fi Soul was written by Haley with Matt Parad & DJ Kyriakides. The concept of the video takes the title of the song, “Deep Water” literally. The clip was shot in a living room built in the bottom of a pool.
Haley shares the challenges she faced filming the video, directed by Naomi Christie, with Forbes magazine:
Just before plummeting into the water, I got a few safety tips from our amazing camera operator, Brett Stanley. I had to take three deep breaths in and out. After my last inhale, I needed to exhale as much as possible, and then submerge eight feet underwater. I basically had to find the breath or air from within! As difficult as this was in different ways, I stayed present throughout and enjoyed the crazy ’70s styled living room that was dressed up at the bottom of the pool.
As far as the songs that inspired “Deep Water” Haley names The Jackson 5’s “Don’t Know Why I Love You,” Amerie’s “1 Thing,” Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love,” and Etta James, “I Would Rather Go Blind.”
