Electronic music producer and DJ STEVE AOKI takes a different turn for the video for his latest single “Can’t Go Home” (Ultra Music)–co-produced by Felix Jaehn and featuring pop sensation Adam Lambert. Making its debut today via Idolator, “Can’t Go Home” is a welcome addition to Aoki’s vast music video arsenal. .
This tongue-in-cheek music video, directed by Romain Dubois and Ménad Kesraoui, follows Paul the chimpanzee who was the star of a great 90’s sitcom, but the success he knew back then had completely vanished, and the downfall of his career has turned him into a depressed hot mess. He now lives at the beach, downtrodden and alone, surrounded by movie posters reminding him of past success. While taking in the ocean, he bumps into a young woman named Lucy. He falls in love, turns his life around and ultimately sets sail to reconnect with the family he left behind.
“If you’re already curating your potential ‘songs of the summer’ playlist, consider this new track from Steve Aoki a worthy addition” wrote Jeffrey Nelson of People(3/24/16).
“Can’t Go Home” (http://smarturl.it/CantGoHome) is available now at all digital retailers on Ultra Music.
