Today, 3x GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter Ingrid Andress releases “Seeing Someone Else,” the second look into her highly-anticipated upcoming sophomore album. Andress co-produced the track with longtime collaborator Sam Ellis to bring the genre-pushing power ballad to life, highlighting the complexities and consequences that arise with self-growth and evolution. You can listen to “Seeing Someone Else” here.
“We all grow and change, but not everyone wants us to,” Andress shares. “Some people want to keep you exactly where you are for as long as possible, even if it’s hurting you. Sometimes you don’t even realize it’s happening. But then one day you wake up and decide the person they want you to be isn’t you anymore, so you pack your shit and break free from their grip.”
Andress continues, “Writing this song was very transformative for me and I wanted the production to really reflect that and represent the music that I listen to and am constantly inspired by. ‘Seeing Someone Else’ was one of the moments on the record where I went a little ‘mad scientist’ and was like ‘okay what would it sound like if we add some synth here, keep pedal steel there, but have an acoustic guitar here?’ This song has truly become one of my favorites from the new music, and I hope it makes you feel as liberated as I felt when writing it.”
Andress showcases her feelings visually through a mirage of dark and grainy VHS footage that follows Andress through illuminated nighttime cityscapes and dive bars. The end clip shows Andress watching the footage of herself and reflecting on her personal journey, revealing an inspiring new sense of self-awareness and independence she has found.
