Laura Marano Premieres New Music Video for “Let Me Cry”
- American actress and singer-songwriter Laura Marano has dropped a new music video for “Let Me Cry” directed by Noah Kentis.
The song is the second single off her upcoming debut EP (yet-untitled), following "Me". The EP is set to be released in March 2019.
Originally, the song was called “Not Today”, but she changed the title to “Let Me Cry”.
“This song was recorded last year at a pretty chaotic, emotional point of my life,” Laura Marano said of the song. “I wasn’t sure what exactly to do with the song when it was finished, because I knew it was special, but it was the most vulnerable song I had ever done, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to show that side of me yet.”
“Cut to a few months later, and I’m listening to the song, and quite suddenly, I know exactly what the music video should be,” she continued. “I went from not even knowing whether I should put it out to seeing and wanting to share a completed video for everyone to watch.”
“The video has a pretty intense intro with multiple cuts, but the bulk of the video is actually just one shot,” she revealed. “The camera follows me around as I slowly but surely transition into being a mess. [They] had to continuously put me back together again after each take. They literally redid my hair, makeup and outfit around six times. It was amazing! When I saw the finished video, I first didn’t know what to think because I had never made a video like this before,” Marano shares. “It feels sad, it feels raw, and it feels exactly how I felt when I first listened to the finished song. I really am so proud of this video.”
