“I will be waiting with a song in my soul” – Chester Bennington
May 15, 2020 – Grey Daze, the Phoenix-based rock band that birthed one of the most recognizable voices in modern rock music, Chester Bennington, have released a fourth single, “Soul Song,” and an accompanying video, which was directed by Bennington’s son, Jaime. “Soul Song” is the fourth single to be released from the forthcoming album, Amends. Grey Daze has previously released: “Sometimes” (a music video for the track became all the more relevant with stay-at-home orders, with the song inspiring hope amidst feelings of isolation and sadness), alongside “Sickness” and “What’s In The Eye”. An eight-part video series titled “Making Amends” takes fans behind-the-scenes into the making of the 11-song album.
“Having Jaime involved in the recording of ‘Soul Song’ meant so much to all of us,” explains Grey Daze co-founder and drummer Sean Dowdell. “It was one of those full circle moments where we remembered meeting Chester at an even younger age than Jaime, and to now be recording with his son… it was a highlight of recording Amends. Jamie is a burgeoning filmmaker so when he offered to do this video, well, we couldn’t think of a better way to present this song.”
Jaime Bennington explained his vision for the video:
“This music video is about my spiritual connection to the other side and my literal experiences with the elusive and, at times, incomprehensible presence of my father after death. ’Soul Song’ is about the many ways in which we come to enlightenment, into knowledge, and the many ways we fall away from it. This is my personal experience with that.”
Amends is available in a variety of collectible formats with several iterations available exclusively via the band’s website below.
