American Idol season 10 alum has Haley Reinhart has unveiled the video for “Shook,” the latest track off her fourth studio album Lo-Fi Soul.
Haley wrote the track with Tony Esterly and friend Clare Reynolds, she told Billboard in an interview, after a fun night of partying in Nashville. “It was my birthday weekend, and this was my last session before leaving to go back to L.A. I was hungover and wanted to write a tune that channeled that hazy feeling, mixed with a lusty, love-drunk state of mind.”
The accompanying video represents Haley’s “deep subconscious,” and “the ‘good and bad’ angels over my shoulder who follow me in my dream,” she said. “We toy with a boy I’m infatuated with as we dance around him and play dress up in the RagDoll Pink Palace.”
Jay Starrett of MTV’s Ex On the Beach plays Haley’s love interest.
“Lo-Fi Soul defines me and all the different colors and characteristics of who I am,” Haley told Billboard. “I’m just an old soul who’s constantly connecting the dots in life, smiling all the way…I’ve managed to combine my favorites sounds of soul and rock ‘n’ roll with hints of jazz and R&B. I used certain sounds like 808s, heavy bass, organ, horns, and reverb guitars to bring it all together.”
Haley is currently on a nationwide tour, supporting Lo-Fi Soul through April. CLICK HERE for tour schedule and ticket information.
