LA-based artist Gavin Haley has shared his summery new anthem, “Mine” today. The track, which explores a relatable theme that’s part moving on from, and part yearning for a former relationship, is taken from his upcoming debut album, I hate you, Don’t Leave Me.
The new album, out July 15th, is available for pre-save now HERE.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Haley shared, “’Mine’ is about missing something more once it’s gone. Once you’re removed from a situation it’s easy to remember just the good moments. I find this to be true especially with people and places. We let ourselves back into relationships or situations because we romanticize what it was.”
According to Haley the song came together almost effortlessly during a writing camp for the album. He shares, “The producer put on some tunes he had made and ‘Mine’ was already mostly recorded by another artist. This was the first time in my life I was like ‘who’s song is this, I want to sing it’. At the time I was really going through it personally and connected deeply with what I was hearing. I did a session to make it feel a bit more me… and recording it was natural and quick.”
The single release is accompanied by an official music video. The visual follows Haley and his lady around a house party as tensions rise between them – their night goes from vibing on the dance floor to arguing in the bedroom, what is the fate of this young couple? Watch below to find out.
