(Los Angeles, CA – February 27, 2020) – Popsinger and songwriter DAYVID released today the music video for his hit single “Spinning Bottles.” Since the single’s release last month, “Spinning Bottles,” has been taking Top 40 radio by storm, enjoying play in major markets across the United States, including New York, Chicago, Nashville and Pennsylvania.
“Spinning Bottles” was co-written by DAYVID and Grammy-Nominated producer Morgan Taylor Reid (Marshmello, Jack & Jack, CHROMEO). The single was mixed by DJ Swivel and mastered by Chris Gehringer. “Spinning Bottles” is available on all streaming platforms including Spotify and Apple Music: http://dayvid.lnk.to/SpinningBottles
“I wrote Spinning Bottles while I was dealing with difficult relationships in his life that sent me into a deep depression,” says the 22-year-old artist. “Spinning Bottles is a metaphor for being in a constant cycle of mental mayhem and feeling trapped and not knowing what to do.” DAYVID hopes that “Spinning Bottles” will help others who are also going through a hard period. “Music has the power to change the conversation about mental health, and I want people to know that it is okay to talk about our struggles and it is okay to ask for help. Once I did that, everything changed. I got my life back.”
Joshua Amar, who has written projects for Darren Aronofsky, Avril Lavigne, John Legend and Death Cab for Cutie, directed the music video. “When DAYVID approached me to collaborate on SPINNING BOTTLES, I was already going through a very difficult and emotional time in my life. The concept for the video was birthed from DAYVID’s personal stories and my emotional connection to the themes, simply describing the mental purgatory our emotional trauma put us through. I get pretty excited and wild when I brainstorm ideas and it was awesome talking with DAYVID because he always shared that excitement with me. Like me, he’s all about throwing new ideas out there, experimenting and dreaming big,” says Amar.
In conjunction with the release of the “Spinning Bottles” music video, DAYVID will also be releasing a line of merchandise that supports mental health initiatives. A portion of all merchandise sales will to go mental health organizations that focus on providing services for those struggling and that help erase the stigma surrounding mental illness. All purchases will also come with a download of “Spinning Bottles.” The merchandise will be available on www.officialdayvid.com mid-March.
