Andy Shauf – Telephone [Music Video]

Today, Andy Shauf dropped the animated music video for Telephone. [No it is not the Lady GaGa cover]
The third single is taken from the upcoming album Norm which comes out on February 10, 2023 via ANTI- and Arts & Crafts.
Another wonderful heartbreaking singer-songwriter pop tune.

About the track by Andy:
Shauf hates talking on the phone, so, imagining someone different, he wrote “Telephone”. The yearning intensity of the song went unusual places, and Shauf deemed it worth keeping. ‘I wish you’d call me on the telephone,’ he begins in a half-whisper, ‘I want to hear your voice // reaching late into the night.’

The accompanying video, animated by Chad VanGaalen, features a returning character from Shauf’s “Catch Your Eye” video, and offers a fantastical continuation of its predecessor’s plot. “I love Chad’s animation style so much,”

Shauf says of the video. “He takes normal things and makes them odd, but also makes odd things seem totally normal.
We asked him to take us into the weird world of Norm and a few months later we received an email with a link to this video and it was everything that we hoped for and much more.” There’s a story unfolding on Norm, leaping from song to song and video to video, illuminating the comedy and cruelty of humanity. Most of the action takes place in the gaps between tracks, but Shauf deliberately left open spaces through which audiences could enter to find the story and create meaning for themselves.
