Today, Matthew Chaim is releasing the official film for his latest single, “Sunflowers.” Directed by filmmaker Leo Zuckerman, the film provides the perfect visual accompaniment to the deeply personal single which was released late last month. Watch the official “Sunflowers” music video HERE.

Written as an ode to Matthew’s late father’s favorite flower, the sunflower takes on a life of its own in both the song and video, acting as a connection between father and son and the time that was taken from them. The video flips between scenes of Matthew now and a version of his younger self, making for a poignant and breathtaking watch.  

Speaking on the creation of the music video, Matthew explains that “some songs have a way of constructing visuals in my mind as they’re being written.” He continues to detail that with “Sunflowers,” it was very early on that I could see this aerial shot of a sand-colored old bug driving through the desert. I approached my good friend and incredibly talented film director Leo Zuckerman with that mental image, and we together carved out a story that I really feel brings this song to life.”
