Lou Canon Shares Video For Latest Single “Next to You”

Lou Canon has announced her third studio album, Audomatic Body, set for worldwide release on July 10 via Paper Bag Records. The acclaimed Canadian mastermind makes her second album offering with the primal noir-pop love song “Next to You.” 

“Next to You” is not about a one night stand. Or a fleeting relationship. It’s about the decision you make every day – day after day – to be with your partner,” explains Canon. “The video was originally conceived before the present climate of lockdown and isolation. A call was put out to friends, family, and followers, to contribute bedroom footage. “Write this line somewhere on your body and film yourself.”  

“When the quarantine began, we found ourselves alone. Maybe alone with a partner; maybe alone with family. Or maybe all alone. Suddenly, the need to share these intimacies took on a whole new life form. We captured those moments, just before bed, when our bodies struggle to shut down but are overcome with questions, anxiety, and longing. It’s that difficult time of day when we are most raw, most vulnerable. Somehow through those late-night phone calls, the laughter, the connection, the check-ins, the extensions, I find myself right next to you, even though we happen to be so far apart.”
