RICHMOND, VA (October 19, 2016) – Evan Barlow releases a heartfelt visual for his new record titled “Butter Toppin.” The video shows the heartbroken artist waking up in the morning to an empty bed, brushing his teeth, and eventually heading out of the house in search of his girlfriend who is now with another guy. The video continues, moving the viewer through spaces of disappointment and pain, only to discover that it was all a dream.
The Virginia native continues to release records showing his depth and diversity, determined to bring awareness to his artistic skill set. “Butter Toppin,” produced by Andrew Hypes is one of Evan’s records off of his “Fabrics” mix-tape released earlier this year, is a creative, harmonic, angelic music blend with a strong bass guitar riff. The video is sure to take you on a journey of love, pain, disappointment and hope from start to finish.
“Once you’ve dealt with as much loss as I have, it’s easy to have visions of losing the closest thing to you. ‘Butter Toppin’ is a piece of my journey through love, and the risk someone puts themselves in by falling in love. Even though there is a chance of heartbreak and pain, we as human beings should always be free to love again,” says Evan about his video, which can be seen on BET JAMS nationwide.
Evan is currently in the studio fixing up a new batch of music to release in early 2017.
