After giving fans the first taste of her upcoming sophomore album with the October 2017 release of lead single, “Diane,” Cam has dropped a new video for the tune.
The new video was filmed in L.A. by director Daniel Carberry, who also directed Cam’s video for “Mayday.”
Co-penned by Cam, Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson—the same songwriting team behind “Burning House”—“Diane” is an uptempo tale of a love triangle in which the “other” woman apologetically breaks the news to Diane that her husband is having an affair.
“‘Diane’ is my response to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene,’” says Cam. “It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get. The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth. Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners. And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”
