Moon Walker has released his dark, synthy new single, “I’m Afraid I’ll Go To Heaven,” accompanied by a surreal music video. The track is taken from Moon Walker’s upcoming sophomore album, The Attack Of Mirrors, out October 21, 2022. Watch the video now below. The album is available for pre-order here.
Formed at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harry Springer created Moon Walker initially as a way to pass time and make extra money through selling songs to sound libraries. Today, Springer composes, produces and performs under the moniker after Moon Walker’s debut album, Truth to Power, turned the heads of several tastemakers and garnered hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify.
Describing the single, Moon Walker explains, “A dark, heavy, synth-led instrumental acts as the soundtrack for the vocals. The lyrics are a biting commentary on religion as it pertains to our modern political system.”
The video, inspired by The Shining and directed by Madison McConnell, sees Springer–donning a tan checkered suit and bright red blouse–sitting at a bar, often from the surreal perspective of the bartender. McDonnell adds, “The “I’m Afraid I’ll Go To Heaven” music video was inspired by the bar scene in Kubrick’s “The Shining”. We used close-up shots to show emotion and perspective and tried to capture a looming feeling that something was off.”
Moon Walker gushes about the video, “This is my favorite music video I’ve ever made. Madi had the idea to base it heavily off of one of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies, which I think was brilliant. It also gave me specific references to base my performance off of, which is great if you suck at acting, like me!”
