All hail the single life with endless chances to have fun, especially as summer rounds the corner.
Sam Hunt praises being solo and the summer flings that can result in the new video for his single “Single for the Summer.”
The video is a bleached out, beachy look at all things summer: ice cream, bicycle rides, boardwalks and of course beautiful women. “Blame it on the bikinis, party girls and martinis/ And the sunshine,” Hunt sings. Summer, apparently, turns him into a wandering eye.
Shot from a first person POV–as if the camera were the man–the video follows his adventures down by the beach where he spends his time relaxing with one lady in particular. But he can’t commit because it’s summer. In the song, Hunt admits that he’s too old to be playing such games, but he can’t help how every May makes him want to let loose and enjoy being free.
At least for the summer.
