Tyler Farr Releases Music Video for ‘Withdrawals’
The powerful video, directed by Eric Welch (who has also directed music videos for Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney), shows Farr trying to get over an addiction to a woman, not a drink. The singer shows off impressive theatrical chops as he is trapped in a glass box that fills with smoke and water.
“I chose to record "Withdrawals" because of its raw emotion," Farr explains. "So when I was trying to come up with a concept that would fit the song perfectly, I wanted the video to reflect the anguish of the lyrics.
“When we were trying to come up with visuals to help explain the emotion, we looked at footage of Trent Reznor's performances in [Nine Inch Nails] music videos [and] art galleries of people in glass boxes, and then tried our best to put those against the lyrics of the song," he continues. "What came out in the end is exactly what I had in my head.”
The Missouri native says that the song is already a fan favorite during his live shows.
"It’s been going over very well; I can kind of monitor that through people tweeting and wanting to know the lyrics and stuff," Farr tells The Boot. "So, [the new songs have] been going over well, and I’m excited just as much as the fans are about getting to play new music as they are getting to hear new music."
