Alex Aiono reveals video for ‘As You Need’

Interscope recording artist, Alex Aiono has revealed the charming new video for his song, ‘As You Need’. Written late the night before his appearance on iHeart’s morning show with Elvis Duran, Aiono debuted the song that morning on the program, performing it live and receiving thousands of fan requests for the artist to record and release it. The new visual, filmed on a New York City rooftop and directed by Clarence Fuller (Azealia Banks, Skylar Stecker), follows Aiono through an intimate serenation to his loved one while including unforgettable visuals of the city’s famous skyline. Written and produced on his own, Aiono gives his fans the ultimate experience with an intimate, unplugged performance.

“I wrote ‘As You Need’ in a hotel room after a pretty intense phone call with a girl I was really into who was conflicted about us because of a lot of her past, and I was trying to piece together what I wanted her to know from me, without pressure. I remember feeling like I wanted to match my vulnerability with hers in a way and I wanted the music video to match that vibe,” says, Aiono. “A simple concept, like singing it by myself on a rooftop, and adding in little reflective clips we took throughout the day. Standing on a rooftop in New York City with all of the most iconic buildings in the background was, for me, a way to show that this theme-the balance between love and fear– is probably happening inside a lot of the glowing windows behind me, too. (And the fact that it was 20 degrees outside and we all almost froze to death).”
