After recently releasing “Take You Home,” her first single in two years, Cassadee pope has released a sensual new video to accompany the song. Cassadee reveals a more seductive side, a bit of a departure from what we’re used to from the Florida native.
“Since ‘Take You Home’ has such a vivid lyric, I didn’t feel like the video needed a storyline,” said Cassadee. “I wanted to support the song, not to overshadow.”
Nashville sets the backdrop to ins the video directed by Justin Nolan Key, which focuses solely on Cassadee to carry it. The mood lighting conjures up an alluring image, while performance shots interspersed with images of her riding in the back seat of a car on a rainy night, create a romantic feel.
“I love how much of a departure the look is from my past music videos. I wanted to go darker with the colors, more inconspicuous with the locations, edgier with the wardrobe,” Cassadee added. “Making videos has always been a dream of mine since I was a little girl. Now I get to help create and star in them. I couldn’t be more excited!”
“Take You Home”—the follow up to 2016’s “Summer”—is the first single since the 28-year-old parted ways with record label, Republic Nashville in 2017. On top of that, Cassadee and fiancé Rian Dawson, drummer for All Time Low, called it quits after 8 years together.
Bouncing back from heartbreak, Cassadee’s looking ahead to new love with a song about falling in love. The premise of the song is taking that special someone back to your hometown to get ot know you better. A similar concept, but altogether different tune, to Brett Eldredge’s “The Long Way.”
“I wanna take you home and I ain’t talking / ‘Bout a two mile ride back to my place. Oh, this ain’t the same old song / About two hearts hooking up, one and done on a Friday. No, boy, I’m talking ’bout a map dot town nobody knows. That’ll tell you everything you need to know / About me and why I talk like I do. And why I’m falling for you. And why I take it slow.”
In addition, Cassadee is set for a return appearance on “The Voice” as mentor to Kelly Clakson’s team, on April. 9th.
