Trevor Hall and Jordan Taylor Wright Drop Brilliant Visual for ‘Moon / Sun’
“MOON / SUN,” one of Hall’s favorite tracks off of the album, quickly became a fan favorite as well and garnered millions of listens within weeks of its release. This track is one of Hall’s more upbeat tracks.
“This single, ‘MOON/SUN’ is a song of jubilation and a celebration of spirit. On this journey that we’re all on, sometimes we push love away. It’s the only thing we want, but still, we push it away. ‘MOON/SUN’ is about the eternal space of the heart,” said Hall. “The space in your heart is never going away. No matter where you go, that love is always going to be there.”
The single caught the attention of mindful narrative filmmaker and director, Jordan Taylor Wright of Taylor Cut Films, who has worked with artists such as Usher, Justin Bieber and The Chainsmokers. Wright directed the official video for “MOON/SUN” which was filmed in one day in Santa Barbara, CA.
“The message of ‘MOON/SUN’ resonates with me and is a beautiful message to receive. After discovering Trevor Hall’s music via social media, I connected with him and asked about collaborating. Hall appreciated my work as well, so we worked together to create this music video,” said Jordan Taylor Wright, Founder of Taylor Cut Films. “It was an honor to create with Hall on such a meaningful single about love.”
In an exclusive conversation, The Hype Magazine got Trevor and Jordan together for an in-depth interview that turned into a jaw-dropping conversation, yup Trevor floored me with his philosophy, and just how the joint Moon / Sun iterated that for him in the song as well as the collab with Jordan to make an insanely magnificent visual for the joint…Tune in!
“THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS” is very much inspired by the stars and Hall’s studies in astrology really helped Hall understand that everything is related, and nothing is separate.
Topping the charts at number four on the iTunes Alternative Albums charts, “THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS” is Hall’s first independent musical release. Supported by his fans, known as The Villagers, Hall’s Kickstarter campaign became the number one music campaign of its kind in 2017 – after a decade-plus of recording for established labels such as Geffen and Vanguard.
The entirety of “THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS” not only explores a completely new sonic terrain for Hall, but it was also released unconventionally – in three to five song installments on specific lunar dates. The release of the “MOON/SUN” music video today is timed to correlate with the new moon. “THE FRUITFUL DARKNESS” was officially released on June 1, 2018, and can be streamed on the following platforms Apple Music and Spotify.
