On “MMXX,” Royal & the Serpent reflected,
“With the new year ahead of us, I wanted to invite my audience into my life a little further. My mom has been my teacher, best friend, and biggest supporter for forever and I know how much my listeners love to see/hear more of that stuff. So, I flew my parents out, rented a super8 camera, and got my best friends to help us create the most ridiculous ‘home videos’ ever. This song/video represents a special time in my journey. It’s an ode to how far I’ve come, and how I’ve managed to get here - with mom right by my side.”
