The sing is the third single off of his upcoming sophomore album “All 4 Nothing”, following “26” and “All 4 Nothing (I'm So in Love)”.
It was written by Ari Leff, Jakob Rabitsch and Slyvester Willy Sivertsen. Produced by Yakob, Sly and John Cunningham.
The accompanying video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis. In the clip, Lauv meets and connects with his younger self.
The video stars Lauv, Trin Hammers as Young Lauv, Sierra McCormick as Young Samantha and Jaylin Hollis as Older Samantha.
Lauv shared on social media, “when i started this album, i was going through a big existential crisis, questioning everything i had and why i had it. i was also struggling a lot with self confidence and wondering if i ever truly had that, where i lost it, etc. i heard somewhere that as kids, we're all born with this innate confidence and ability to be *stars* in whatever right that might be, but along the way its easy to lose that as the world beats it out of us, and a lot of us forget. so i set out on a journey to find my confidence and where my 'starpower' came from. that included things like therapy, meditation (lots of it), and at worse times, shortcuts in things like substances and drinking. that being said, one of the most powerful things i found was this thing called inner child meditation.”
- He continued, “where you literally visualize yourself at a younger age and see what lessons, messages, or journeys this younger you may have for you. i literally had conversations with younger kid ari, at different ages, on multiple occasions. one of those turned into the song Kids Are Born Stars, and a lot of the rest of it, helped me find my north star throughout the rest of the album writing process and life. sitting here today, i would say i'm not fully healed (i don't think one ever can be, and thats not the point), but i've found a deeper connection with the true me and learned the confidence is all about accepting yourself exactly as you are, playing that to your strengths, and moving through life intimately with yourself. I can't wait for you guys to hear the rest of this journey on this album, but next, i'm just so excited for you guys to hear Kids Are Born Stars, and watch the video.”
