Local singer/songwriter Christian Heath is preparing the release of his brand-new single ‘Because Of You’ tomorrow – and we’ve got the exclusive premiere of the track and it’s music video.
The song is a slight departure from Heath’s usual sound and was inspired by John Legend’s single “Tonight”. Heath embraces his soulful pop side with a song theme about getting someone to open up and trust you.Recorded and produced by SAMA winner Mark Beling, both Heath and Beling (who have worked together numerous times) have moved away from their signature pop/rock sound and have focussed on a pop/R&B feel for “Because Of You”.
“It had to be done as the music industry is evolving and so should any artist, while still staying true to who they are,” the singer says on his new sonic experimentation.
The music video for the track was shot in a beautiful mansion in Emmarentia, Johannesburg. Joining Heath in the video is actress Candace Africa – a good friend of his. “It was a lot of fun getting behind the camera again and I’ m really excited for the upcoming album, which will be dropping in July. It’s gonna be completely different and has a fresher and funkier sound to my previous works,” the star says of the track’s music video.
