Recently, Tom tweeted about a new music video his friend and musical collaborator Sam Roman released via Sam’s YouTube account. In a conversation with Sam, we learned that Tom helped him in the early stages of the video when Sam was still figuring out what would work or not.
I ran Tom through the script when I got it because obviously I don’t have much experience with things like that. He really liked the end result, and tweeted it for me! We filmed the video throughout LA. Sadly it was the week after Tom was there so we didn’t manage to see each other. It’s a shame we couldn’t get him a cameo, I could have maybe been pushing him in the trolley or something!
The video features a large amount of symbolism through the words and images. What do you think the plant in the trolley is symbolic for? Would the message be different if he were pushing Tom instead?
Sam Roman’s debut album “Born to be the King” will be available to buy exclusively from www.samroman.com in the coming weeks. Sam is also working with Tom as a producer on re-recordings of favorite past songs, and a few new pieces Tom has in his arsenal to be released. As soon as more information regarding this collaboration is made public, we will let you know.
