Third Eye Blind and Velvet Negroni drop new single “To The Sea”—listen
The new track features an experimental video, directed by Ryan Olson.September 15, 2021
“To The Sea” is the third single from the upcoming album, followed by “Box Of Bones” and “Again” (feat. Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast). The new track is a collaboration with experimental artist Velvet Negroni.
“I had no idea what Ryan Olson was up to until I saw the video for the first time,” Jenkins says. “To which I exclaimed, ‘This is the best Third Eye Blind video ever!’ And I am saying that when, as often as not, I direct my own videos.”
Jenkins goes on to further compliment Olson’s work on the video and how the music video perfectly captures the transformative period during quarantine.
“Ryan is a stoner genius, and I say this knowing that he is not actually a stoner at all,” Jenkins says. “To me having my face melded and morphed with the incredibly talented Velvet Negroni evoked how being stuck in lockdown changes us into someone else.”
The band will be screening a companion documentary How We Hold Each Other Right Now: The Making Of Our Bande Apart in New York City and Los Angeles.
The documentary, co-directed by Third Eye Blind guitarist Kryz Reid and Jenkins, chronicles the production behind the titular album written during the 2020 lockdown period. The film premieres in New York City at Gramercy Theater and in Los Angeles at Masonic Lodge Sept. 24 and Sept. 28, respectively.
