Take a second to stop and smell the roses. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” Platitudes and Ferris Bueller alike agree on one crucial aspect of the human condition; life moves at a mile minute and if you’re not careful, you’ll find it passing by right before your eyes. The notion is at the core of Christian French’s eye-opening new single and video.
French’s infectious alternative pop sound has earned him millions upon millions of listeners in the span of three short years, and given “time of our lives,” it is no wonder why people gravitate towards his music. Built on an array of easy-going production, French muses on how easily we can get caught up in a humdrum of daily life, losing ourselves in endless routine. He spoke further on the “time of our lives,” sharing,
“The ‘time of our lives’ video is meant to inspire finding purpose and excitement while continuously growing as a human, instead of staying complacent and going through robotic, monotonous motions just to get through the day. Life isn’t always supposed to be comfortable.”
In addition to gracing us with a needed reminder to enjoy the easy-to-miss moments of life, “time of our lives” arrives alongside a breathtaking video. Directed by Mattias Russo-Larsson, the accompanying visual sees French escaping a drab household to venture outward, exploring grand natural landscapes. It is a beautiful juxtaposition.
