Patrick Watson is thrilled to unveil his new track and video entitled ‘Lost With You’. Recorded during the current pandemic, Patrick felt the urge to reach out to his fans and offer a little comfort. “I wanted to share this song with you,” says Patrick, “I hope it keeps you good company.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Watson himself with the additional craft of Arizona O’Neill who directed the ‘Here Comes The River’ video. Patrick explains: “I’m not going to lie but finally my embarrassing rollerblading skills came in handy to film this. Homemade covid videos are very fun to make. I just kept seeing people biking when I heard this song. A big special thanks to Arizona O’Neill for editing and art directing, and a huge thank you to the talented bikers.”
This is his first new material since the release of the critically-acclaimed album, Wave.
Patrick Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band, which includes Joe Grass (guitar), Evan Tighe (drums), Mishka Stein (bass).
