    Terra Lightfoot's song "Pinball King" is exactly what you'd think it'd be about: a dude who's really good at pinball. And in the video that comes along with it, which we're premiering right here today, the meaning is just as literal. The clip opens with a guy walking into a mysterious door in a dark alleyway, which then leads him into a space with a pinball machine. As he intensely plays the classic game, the Canadian singer-songwriter plays the song with her band in the background, singing the lyrics to the mystery pinball man. The ending is pretty cute too, but I'll leave that for you to figure out on your own.

    Terra told Baeble about the song's creation, "This is a really fun song that came about due to extreme fatigue. I was in Ottawa, having flown in on a red eye from California after attending a dinner at the Canadian consulate in LA. I went out with some buds after the show and found a basement venue with a crazy loud band and a row of old pinball machines. We played most of the night and the next morning I woke up in this beautiful hotel with my guitar out of the case on the bed beside me and reached over for it and started singing and playing the verse riff while my eyes were still closed. The whole song fell right out of the sky almost finished."

    "Pinball King" is off of Terra Lightfoot's latest album New Mistakes, out now.
