The newest music video by Noah Reid came just two days before the release of his second studio album. Got You received an Exclusive yesterday morning via Entertainment Weekly, and is the uplifting, cheerful, pick-me-up everyone can use right about now! Gemini will be released on Friday, May 29 and is available on pre-sale now digitally through iTunes.
The Got You video was directed by Amy Segal (who directed the Schitt’s Creek documentary Best Wishes, Warmest Regards) who drove around the city of Toronto filming a bunch of Reid’s friends and members of his community getting out of the house for a socially distanced, apart-together dance party.
“Back when life was normal, we used to throw parties (remember parties?) and often my fiance Clare and her sister Julia would make up these line dances and get a bunch of people learning the steps and doing it together, and it was just the best,” said Noah. “We thought that would be a fun thing to do with the Got You video, but obviously we can’t all be together at the moment. So Clare and Julia made up a dance that was Noah-Proof (if I can do it, anyone can)”
Everyone could use a little feel-good-movement so Noah has encouraged fans on social media to learn the dance themselves and share their videos using the hashtag #GotYouDanceChallenge and if they tag @olreid and @baselinemusic on their post it just might get shared!
Born in Toronto, Reid is also known for his work on television, film and stage, including his role as Patrick on the incredibly popular sitcom Schitt’s Creek. It wasn’t until recently that the world got a glimpse of his serious musical talent. With a songwriting style that touches on the singer-songwriters of the seventies and an honest, contemporary delivery, Noah Reid is a combination of old and new, of polished and rusted over. ‘Gemini’ is Reid’s second studio album, produced by Matthew Barber, it will be released on May 29, 2020.
In 2015, Noah was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Original Song in the feature film People Hold On. In 2017, his soulful acoustic cover of Tina Turner’s pop hit The Best on CBC’s Schitt’s Creek cracked #3 on the iTunes Canada Charts. That directed fans all over the world to Reid’s 2016 debut solo album Songs From A Broken Chair. With support from all over the globe including Spotify Editorial Playlists, Entertainment Weekly, LA Times, Boston Globe, ESPN, ET Canada, Exclaim!, Pollstar, Medium, Pop Sugar, Chicago Daily Herald, CBC, Indie88 and more, Noah’s talent has reached fans in an incredible way.
