Jean Castel Premieres Debut Song “What Happened To Us”
- Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Jean Castel has released a debut song “What Happened To Us” with accompanying music video. The song was premiered on exclusively Billboard.
The track will appear his forthcoming debut EP "Orange & Yellow", which is due out in Winter 2018.
The music video was directed by George Mays and filmed at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles.
Jean Castel told Billboard about the video and the song;
“When discussing the video narrative with the director, George Mays, it was his mutual excitement for the record and vision that created the perfect on-screen representation. In essence, I wanted this video to showcase my lighthearted nature.
I wanted every line to feel conversational and relevant. That’s why I used the lyric, ‘You say it’s fake news,’ because I knew it would leave the listener with the impression of, ‘Oh, I’ve heard that before.’”
- Jean Castel moved to the US from France in 2014 to study at the esteemed Berklee College Of Music. He currently resides in Los Angeles where he has teamed up with some of the best in the industry (amongst those, Multi-Grammy Award Winner, Mark ‘Spike’ Stent) to develop his own music.
"But I grew up in Bordeaux and that means I have a French way of thinking. I see America with my French eyes, and I think it comes across in my lyrics."
