After releasing her self-titled EP earlier this year, Lena Stone is treating One Country readers to the exclusive premiere of the video for her latest single, “Tragic.”
“‘Tragic’ is so fun and flirty, and we totally brought it to life in this live performance video,” Lena tells One Country. “Plus, how cool is that rotating camera effect?! I loved working with my friends at Stormlight Pictures to create a cute and quirky video to match the song!”
In the video, Lena is seen in a performance studio setting, backed by her band, belting out the lyrics to the upbeat tune. Putting a positive spin on the title’s meaning, “Tragic” has Lena singing about what a travesty it would be had she not gotten together with her man.
“It would be tragic, tragic / if you don’t walk my way / It would be tragic, tragic / if I don’t hear my name / rolling off your lips getting face to face / baby if I don’t get a little taste of that magic, magic / it would be tragic, tragic,” Lena sings in the chorus.
Lena, a co-founder of the Song Sufragettes—weekly songwriters’ night spotlighting women in country music, began her career as a songwriter, penning songs like “Fight Like a Girl” and “Two Hands” with Kalie Shorr.
Featured on her self-titled EP, “Tragic” is a worthy compliment to previous releases “Running Out Of Red Lights,” “Nervous” and “Can’t Think Straight.”
“When I had the idea for ‘Tragic’ I knew exactly how I wanted to write it, so I brought the concept to my producer Adam Wood one day in his studio,” Lena adds. ” I love songs where the title is a little misleading, and so I wanted the story in the song to be anything but tragic. When we finally got into the studio to cut the song we added all these cool production elements, like playing an empty wine bottle and an empty coffee can in the percussion section. “Tragic” is definitely the most fun song to play on the whole EP and the whole band gets really into it!”
