Independent singer-songwriter Jessie Wagner debuted the video for her latest single last week.
Wagner debuted the lyric video for her single ‘My Darlin, My Dear‘ Oct. 2. The song is the third single from Wagner’s forthcoming album Shoes Droppin’. It follows the debut of the album’s singles ‘What You Get Is What You See‘ and ‘End of Time.’
The video places the song’s lyrics over a a subtly changing backdrop that features imagery, such as a heart made of leaves, flowers, and a blue sky filled with heart-shaped balloons. the imagery serves to illustrate the song’s easily accessible lyrical content, which focuses, clearly, on the topic of romance.
Wagner had the following to say specifically about the song’s lyrical theme.
“There’s always that guy that you know is no good for you, but you keep going back anyway,” she said. “This song is an amalgamation of the guys I wished would love me and not just keep me around for convenience.”
The song’s musical arrangement adds its own share of interest. The guitar line and keyboards give the song a soulful, bluesy/gospel type sensibility. The addition of the horns to the mix gives the song something of a vintage R&B sound. Meanwhile, Wagner’s vocal delivery style and sound here lends itself to comparisons to other well-known singers, such as Diana Ross, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige among others.
The arrangement is very much unlike that featured in ‘End of Times,’ which crosses influences of Meghan Trainor and Gladys Knight for its presentation. That old and new school hybrid is certain to appeal to a wide range of listeners in its own right.
‘What You See is What You Get’ meanwhile combines pop and neo-folk influences for a composition that will resonate with an equally wide range of audiences.
