Just in time for Valentine’s day, US musician Zachary Knowles has shared his new single, johnny & june. The release accompanied by an official visual shrouded in mystery, nostalgia and love.
The track tells the tale of an epic love story, set to a captivating guitar-led soundtrack. Speaking of the track, the singer shares: "When I wrote "johnny & june," I was in the midst of a lot of changes in my life. I think because I had so much going on at the time and because there were so many changes, it made me want to write about something steady, that being love. I wanted to make something that just felt good; something that felt real and authentic and honestly just happy. This song is a total love story, and it helped bring me peace during a time of uncertainty in my life. I can’t wait to share it with everyone, and I hope it can do the same for people that it’s done for me."
Directed by Jonah George and produced by TJ Hoover, the visual takes viewers back to high school, encapsulating the innocence of first love and bringing the nostalgia.The viewer never sees the face of this could-be June, and yet they see so deeply into the soulful eyes of this potential Johnny. On the video, Knowles says: "It was easier to write a song about love than to openly talk about it. TJ and Jonah did an amazing job at interpreting the song and bringing its visual side to life. Love is mysterious. Love is selfless."
