Just in time for summer, Grammy winner Colbie Caillat has served up an upbeat, infectious new single “Brighter Than The Sun” and equally bright new music video to accompany it. The song, which the extremely beautiful California girl co-wrote with “Rocketeer” hit-maker/OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, is the second single from Caillat’s upcoming third LP All Of You (preview it on Facebook), which is due out July 12 from Universal Republic. We’ve got the premiere of the teaser for Colbie’s new vid, which you can watch below before flipping through stills from the set of the clip.
“I usually like to start my albums by easing my way in,” Colbie said while talking about her decision to put her new single at the top of the All Of You track list. “But ‘Brighter Than the Sun’ has a punch. It’s so up-tempo and happy. My manager actually requested that it be No. 1, and he was right. This song is awesome because it just gets people started right away and interested in what’s next. A different instrument leads into each part of the song. It never stays the same, which keeps listeners wanting to hear what’s next.”
The video was filmed the video in the appropriately sunny Playa Del Rey beachside community of Los Angeles. As for the song itself, Caillat says she wrote all the tracks on All Of You about her relationship with Justin Young, who plays guitar in her band.
“He was in my band for two years before we noticed that we like each other,” she notes. “I wrote most of this album about us, our ups and downs. All the songs are about life experiences, so I guess this record is more grown up, with a somewhat wiser perspective.”
