Crystal Bowersox, ‘Dead Weight’ Video – Exclusive Premiere

Shanachie Records

“If you’re holding on to dead weight, it’s just holding you down / Oh you’re gonna sink or swim, you better let it go now,” Crystal Bowersox sings in her inspiring new song, “Dead Weight.”

“This song means more to me than even I can completely comprehend,” the “American Idol” alum tells The Boot. “I feel like it’s one of those tunes where the meaning will get deeper and deeper over time as you start to really live and actualize the words into your existence. It’s about knowing in your heart, that not knowing the outcome is perfectly acceptable. Breathe. I’m still figuring it out, myself.”

Crystal shot the brand-new video for “Dead Weight” on a ranch in southern California. (Watch the world premiere below, exclusively on The Boot.) It starts with scenes of a young girl experiencing some sort of dramatic, inner turmoil. But the clip has a happy ending, thanks to the love and affection of a few friends.

“Dead Weight” is featured on Crystal’s upcoming album, All That for This. “That title is about every serendipitous moment in my life, leading me to this one,” explains the singer-songwriter of the collection of songs, due in stores March 26. “I’m really happy right now, and the music reflects that.”
