Multi-platinum international artist Dennis Lloyd shares the animated video for his new single; ‘Alien’ that was released via Arista Records.
‘Alien’ is the first track off his forthcoming debut album.
Directed by Yoav Aluf at Plonter Animation Studios, the video tells a story about an alien who crashes on earth and meets a young boy who helps him search for his lost dog. Despite the alien initially being reluctant to trust the boy, the two form a strong bond throughout their journey together. The video’s message is that regardless of our backgrounds, we’re all looking for the same things in life: to feel loved, safe and to have a place we can call home.
Lloyd stated: “This was the first song I wrote after returning home from tour. At some point on the road you can lose track of where you are, waking up in a new city or country each day, to new people, cultures and foods. In a way I felt like an alien on a spaceship, exploring the world.”
Born and raised in Tel Aviv, in Israel, Lloyd released his debut EP, “Exident”, last year. The lead single, ‘Never Go Back’ landed on Spotify’s sought-after playlist, Today’s Top Hits, on day one of its release.
TIME Magazine praised ‘Never Go Back’ as an “equally alluring follow up” to Lloyd’s global smash, ‘Nevermind.’
In addition, Forbes proclaimed, “Lloyd creatively blends the elements of pop, R&B, rock and reggae, breaking global boundaries in addition to crossing them.”
Lloyd travelled the world on the sold-out Never Go Back Tour, with highlights including show-stopping sets at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, New York City’s Governors Ball and Dover, DE’s Firefly Festival. Last autumn, he embarked on the sold-out Never Go Back Tour: Part III, which spanned across 16 European countries.
