Local crooner Lee Cole has opened himself up to an array of new fans as his latest single ‘Honey, Let Me In’ becomes one of the star’s most successful singles to date and now, the singer is ready for the country to hear his latest musical offering – a ballad titled ‘Emotional’.
The singer bares his soul on the new track which was recorded and produced in his bedroom studio, – showing that Lee is not just a great writer, but also has incredible production skills.
“I wrote ‘Emotional’ earlier in the year after hearing about a close friend’s situation about feeling so lost in your emotions about a relationship, that it feels like you’re drowning,” Lee says. “The song is about acknowledging your intuition and emotions in a failing relationship, so that you can make a decision that’s best for you.”
The star has also premiered the official music video to the track which was filmed by Dream Media, the same company who created the music videos for ‘Pink Dragons’ and ‘Honey, Let Me In’.
“When we first began to conceptualise the music video for ‘Emotional’, we initially thought about showcasing the idea of bottling up your emotions and how that can sometimes feel like drowning. The music video was shot pretty much in Johannesburg, with exception of the end scene being shot in Durban,” Lee says.
He adds “The bathtub scenes showcase reality and how things appear normal on the surface, and the drowning and beach scenes showcase how bottling those emotions can overwhelm you internally when you choose to suppress them. It’s all one big metaphor about the mental and emotional distress relationships can put people through.”
