Harry Hudson unveils the video for his latest single, “Just Slide”, featuring Jaden Smith
“Just Slide” was produced by notable producers Mike Dean [Kanye West, JAY-Z, Travis Scott, 2Pac], Jess Jackson [Tyga, Jason Derulo, Chris Brown] and John Ho [Danity Kane, Kimbra]. The video was filmed in Biloxi, MS, Toronto, ON, Salt Lake City, UT and Calabasas, CA while Harry was on his headlining Can Cowboys Cry Tour last fall.
Of the video, Harry says, “It’s a continuation of the Can Cowboys Cry saga with an unexpected and surreal twist. The story will continue in the next chapter of the journey and my next project.”
Harry Hudson is an American singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. His sound can best be described as ‘Pop-Americana,’ tying together his folk-rock and pop influences to create a stylized cinematic quality. Hudson was born in New Jersey in 1993 and moved to Los Angeles with his family when he was four years old. Harry developed a taste for various types of music throughout his teens, including the work of Johnny Cash, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, and eventually decided to pursue songwriting himself.
The singer released his first song, “World Is Gone,” online in 2013. However, during June of that year, Hudson was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and set his career aside to undergo treatment. After eight months of chemotherapy, he overcame the illness in January 2014. Harry spent the subsequent year rediscovering his inspirations and got to work writing his debut release. In 2015 he independently released two EPs, the Treatment (A-Side) and Gemineyes. The former featured songs he had written during chemotherapy, with lyrics primarily focused on his experience, while the latter was co-written with close friend and collaborator gnash.
For the last three years, Hudson has dedicated himself to the MSFTS collective and their pursuit of change. Alongside other MSFTS members, Harry spearheaded a fundraiser to build a treatment center at Vanderbilt University with Teen Cancer America, which helped raise a half million dollars. The collective primarily seeks change through their art– and in Harry’s case, specifically through music. In the fall of 2017, Harry was signed to MSFTSmusic/Roc Nation through their Interscope Records partnership. Harry Hudson has since released four singles, “Cry for Love,” “Yellow Lights,” “Gone” and “No Good.” Earmilk called the second track, “Yellow Lights,” “emotional and relatable” and “everything you’d want from a song about tumultuous love.”
Keeping in the spirit of the MSFTS collective, Harry is using a variety of art forms to express himself. The singer-songwriter released his short film, Can Cowboys Cry. The film is a contemporary western, the non-linear narrative is told in three chapters and will include four songs from his upcoming debut studio album, Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night, which will be released later this spring. One thing is for sure, Harry Hudson has had a complicated relationship with love and if his art is any indication of what’s to come on his upcoming album, we will be reminded of the complexities we all experience when we feel loved or lost.
