“Behave” is out via 21 Entertainment/Universal Music Canada
Canadian singer-songwriter BAD CHILD returns with a visual for “Behave.” The videocast is comprised of fans who responded to a casting call on socials earlier this year. Some even drove over 20 hours to be in the production. See the René Gibson video below.
“Behave” was released earlier this year alongside “Candy.” The tracks were shared under the title, “I,” which represents the first installment in a series of new music to come this year. “Candy” was also featured on the soundtrack for the Netflix film To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.
Reflecting on the track and the idea behind creating the visual BAD CHILD explains, “Behave” at its core is about discipline and wanting to break out of the shackles of a desperate life. The visual is a play on the oppressive nature of the chorus. Rene Gibson and I wanted to create something cold and bleak, very Orwellian or something the Wachowski’s would admire.”
Despite a canceled tour across North America, the new visual for “Behave” arrives following a handful of collabs and new music from the Ontarian. In addition to a moving rendition of Bill Withers’ “Hope She’ll Be Happier,” BAD CHILD recently joined the broadcast event Stronger Together Tous Ensemble benefitting the Canadian Red Cross. The event saw Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Walk Off The Earth, Fefe Dobson, and many more perform another Withers classic, “Lean On Me.” Watch here.
BAD CHILD is gearing up for another significant year following a major 2019. The eccentric musician landed on the festival circuit last year, playing Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, and Osheaga. He also released his debut EP, Sign Up, which includes “Breathing Fire.” The track peaked in the top five on alternative radio in Canada.
