A Great Big World take a trip down memory lane in the music video for their evocative “You.” The duo (comprised of Ian Axel and Chad King) has come a long way since landing a breakout hit with their Christina Aguilera-assisted “Say Something” in 2013. And it hasn’t only been about professional growth for the Grammy winners. Last year Ian celebrated the birth of his first child, Bowie. He took a moment to reflect on the arrival of his son on their current single. “I never could imagine how my life would change the day you came. And how all my fears and worries would just wash away,” he croons over a sweet production.

“I never saw it coming. Then one day all of a sudden there was you.” The pair brought the heartfelt lyrics to life in the newly released visual. In it they show how their lives have changed since their early days writing songs together. Home footage tracks the evolution of Ian’s relationship with his wife, Lina. It also provides a glimpse into their intimate wedding and her pregnancy. After preparing for the baby’s arrival, we are treated to some adorable footage of the happy family in their bright apartment. The heartwarming release hits all the right chords and is a beautiful testament to the power of love.

Ian opened up about the project and what it meant to him in a statement. “The song is about those people that come into your life and change it forever…the ones you can’t remember your life without,” he explained. The hitmaker also provided some insight into the video’s creation. “It’s a super personal song, so I wanted to get super personal with the video. We take you through different parts of my life, starting from when it was just me and Chad as roommates writing songs, to when I started dating my wife Lina, our marriage, and most recently the birth of our son, Bowie. We use lots of home video footage…plus Lina and Bowie actually got to be in the video when we shot it…so it’s really special to me!”
