Multi-talented singer, songwriter, and actor Joshua Bassett is back with an emotional new single, “Doppelgänger.” The 21-year-old’s first new track of 2022 finds him in a contemplative mood, laying his heart bare. The track’s reflective tone is perfectly captured by the music video, which was co-directed by Bassett and YouTuber, filmmaker and Twitch Streamer Elle Mills. Watch it now below.
“Doppelgänger” was inspired by a real-life event. Of the song, he said, “The song poured out of me immediately after seeing someone who I thought was my ex at a coffee shop. Sucker punched in the heart, I realized I’m not quite as over them as I thought, and that no one, not even a look-alike, could ever take their place.”
Bassett is beginning a new chapter in 2022. After speaking his truth on “Crisis / Secret / Set Me Free,” the Oceanside, CA, native is ready to move forward. He is currently filming the third season of hit TV show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and has a few exciting projects in the works including lots more new music on the horizon.
