Hot Video Alert: Gavin DeGraw - Not Over You
Gavin DeGraw - how could I ever have doubted you? Back on June 27th, DeGraw premiered the video for new single, "Not Over You" on VH1’s live morning show “Big Morning Buzz Live.” Featuring ?? English actress Emilia Clarke (from HBO's Game of Thrones) as the love interest, DeGraw looks great in his trademark hat in this Diane Martel (Mariah Carey, Pixie Lott, Jennifer Hudson) directed video shot on location in New York City. The single was released on iTunes June 7th, peaking at a paltry #96 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Not Over You" is the first single taken from his new album, Sweeter, due out August 9th on RCA Records, available for Pre-Order over on U.S. iTunes HERE.
Sweeter features DeGraw co-writing (SURPRISINGLY) for the very first time, including on this single, co-written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder. Producing on the album we have Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Weezer), Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos), and Ron Aniello (Barenaked Ladies, Matt Nathanson). The single's disappointing chart performance is a bit of a bummer, especially considering the positive reviews (Entertainment Weekly called it a "soulful majestic ballad"). Here's hoping DeGraw really gets the momentum going before the album's release later this summer. Lord knows he could use a hit!
