Gallant’s “Sharpest Edges” music video has arrived. The music video was created for the first single on the R&B/alternative singer's upcoming album. “There are two sides to every coin”, Gallant said in reference to the inspiration behind this track. The video follows the singer and his faceless presumed lover in an expertly choreographed match of romantic tug of war. And even with the rapid shifts between love and hate, the onscreen vibe has an ease and mystery that smooths out the rougher spots. In an exclusive quote for VMAN, Gallant discussed the creative direction and hopes for his official music video "Sharpest Edges":

“The director, Bennett, and I hopped on the phone a while back and instantly I knew we were on the same page. I already trusted where he was aesthetically after seeing some of his other work— particularly the way he was able to make something on screen feel warm and nostalgic— like you’re looking through a broken window into your childhood," Gallant said. "We wanted to make something nuanced, microscopic and understated— and I think that’s exactly what we did. When I see my face at the end of the video it’s like I’m finally seeing myself for the first time; which is exactly the sensation I hope most people will get from hearing and seeing more from this album.”

The Grammy-nominated artist, who has been featured in numerous tracks, is expected to release his second studio album within the next year.
