Following the announcement of his debut album, You Don’t Feel Like Home, last month, Jack In Water has released the video for his breathtaking new single, ‘For You’. Written alongside acclaimed songwriter Justin Parker (Lana Del Ray, Bat For Lashes, Banks), the track is the latest advance from his debut album, which comes out on Nettwerk Records on August 27th. Watch the video HERE.
Directed by Churchie Hill and shot in Sant Jordi, Mallorca, the video is the final in a series of collaborations between Churchie and Jack In Water. “It explores the distorted ways that we are encouraged to love and enter into romantic relationships by music and film,” William Clapson says of the video. “I have always loved the drama of dance and Chuchie’s idea to bring dancers (choreographed by Mar López) to show the complexities of being vulnerable around new people made so much sense to me.”
Produced by Oli Bayston (Loyle Carner, The 2 Bears) at his East London Studio, You Don’t Feel Like Home is not a record to rush. A drama-packed delve back to Will Clapson, aka Jack In Water’s, childhood, the album features deeply personal, coming-of-age songs, drawing on the topics of family, friendship and falling in love but also addressing darker, deeply personal issues – sexual abuse, alcohol misuse and the discovery of death.
Brought up in a little village in Essex, Jack In Water is the alias of singer-songwriter William Clapson. A string of DIY EP releases to date has an impressive accumulated streaming figure of over 10 million.
Now signed to Nettwerk Records and with an album ten years in the making, You Don’t Feel Like Home is a stunning statement of acceptance, as much about moving on as it is about looking back. Enjoy the ride.
