"I will always love you, but never will I forgive you," Inara George
sings at the beginning of her somber song, "Release Me," which is told from the perspective of George's mother to her father (Lowell George of Little Feat) after his passing. The accompanying video, directed by Jeremy Cohen, takes place at the beach in black and white and sees George as she dives into the ocean with her mic. As she finally lets the ocean take over, the stunning metaphor is evident. "Release Me" is from her upcoming solo album entitled Dearest Everybody,
out January 19.
George told Baeble about the video, "I wanted to make a video for this song that captured the feeling one can have when grief feels completely insurmountable and life pushes you around. So serenading the ocean felt like a good way to capture that feeling. I had this clear idea in my head, and my director, Jeremy Cohen, was able to bring it to life. I feel really proud of this video. It was also one of the harder shoots I've ever done. The ocean is no joke. I was getting sand out of my ears for at least a week."
