Saturated shots of barrenness, children playing, caped individuals, fading moments of affection, and more. Detroit-bred, now LA-based, singer and producer JMSN reveals his intriguing new video for single “Love & Pain.”

Directed by Stephen Mallett (who previously directed the video for “Jameson”), the video strikingly captures clips of life’s themes: Spirituality/Purpose, Adolescence/Innocence, and Connection/Intimacy. Opening with a sax-heavy standout from his self-released debut †Priscilla†, which is slated for re-issue October 2013, this melancholy track is a perfect showcase of JMSN’s well honed Alternative-R&B sound. You may either want to get sexy, or cry, or both – hey, we don’t care to know what you do when you’re in love or in pain. Just make sure this song or its video is on when you do what you do.
