Cam released a new single, “Redwood Tree,” on May 29.
Co-written by Cam, Tyler Johnson and Anders Mouridsen, “Redwood Tree” will be featured on Cam’s upcoming sophomore album, which is slated for release later this year. Cam was inspired to co-pen the song by the majestic trees she encountered as a child growing up in California.
“I grew up with a redwood tree in my backyard as my climbing tree,” says Cam. “I spent so many afternoons up there as a kid looking out and dreaming about the future. It feels like I’ve lived five lifetimes since then—I’ve done more than I can even remember, but still part of me wishes I could’ve stayed put, and to have that time at home. But you can’t be in two places at once and you couldn’t have known then what you know now. It’s a song about time, and whatever way you spend it still feels like just a blink to a redwood tree.”
Cam also released a new stop-motion video for “Redwood Tree” on May 29. Directed by Lior Molcho, the video is based off real stories and adventures from Cam’s life.
