The Workday Release wants people to remember the importance of maintained love in its latest single.

The act, the brainchild of singer-songwriter David Ottestad, debuted its new single, ‘I Do‘ and its companion video April 3. The premiere of the new song and video follows that of ‘You‘ and its video, and that of the album’s lead single, ‘Say a Lot With Light,’ its lyric video, and official video.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘I Do’ is a simple, upbeat composition. The use of the guitar, vocals and minimal percussion collectively lends itself to comparisons to works from the likes of John Mayer.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement serves as a reminder to listeners to not take their vows and love for their significant others for granted.

Ottestad pointed this out in a prepared statement, in which he talked about how the video illustrates that message.

“For the video, I wanted to portray the idea that ‘I do’ isn’t just something you say on your wedding day,” he said. “It’s something you say every day. I thought an interesting way to show this was to have the video take place in a time of life transition, and in this case, going through the process of moving. I decided to shoot the video with my wife and show us getting back into our wedding dress and suit years after initially saying ‘I do’ as a symbol of wearing that phrase during changing circumstances.

“It also gave us a chance to feature some of our favorite local businesses in downtown Fullerton, where we live,” added Ottestad. “Especially during the pandemic, being able to make a video that serves as an encouragement to the viewers to #shopsmall was really important to me. We made a purchase at each store we filmed at and had so much fun visiting each spot in our wedding attire.”

The Workday Release Debuts Official ‘Say A Lot With Light’ Video

The Workday Release debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The act, the brainchild of singer-songwriter David Ottestad, debuted the video for the song ‘Say A Lot With Light.’ The video’s premiere came Friday, less than a week after the premiere of the song and its lyric video.

The official video for ‘Say A Lot With Light’ features Ottestad making his way through a variety of night time settings, light in tow as the song plays over the story. The visualization is its own metaphor of sorts used to help translate the familiar lyrical theme featured in the song.

According to a statement from Oddestad, that lyrical theme focuses on the matter of relationships.

“Lyrically, it’s a love song about not settling for someone just because it’s convenient or less scary than being alone,” he said. “The chorus of the song says, “I’ve been waiting on someone who’s truly one million to one so I can say it, and say a lot with light.” I really liked the lyrical concept of speaking with light. To me, it represents this feeling of peace that comes with being with the right person.”

‘Say A Lot With Light’ and its videos are the first from Oddestad’s forthcoming album Like the Light of Stars, which is scheduled for release April 16 through ENCI Records.

The ‘Say A Lot With Light’ lyric video places the song’s lyrics in a cursive font against an image of Ottestad sitting in front of piano as the song plays. The song’s musical arrangement is a gentle, flowing work. Ottestad’s light vocals pair with the song’s piano line and equally light percussion to make it comparable to works from the likes of The Nomadic, Owl City, and Five for Fighting to a lesser degree.

According to a statement from Oddestad, the song’s lyrical theme touches on the a familiar topic.

“Lyrically, it’s a love song about not settling for someone just because it’s convenient or less scary than being alone,” he said. “The chorus of the song says, “I’ve been waiting on someone who’s truly one million to one so I can say it, and say a lot with light.” I really liked the lyrical concept of speaking with light.
