I’ve never heard of Wilder Green, but he has a new song called “Naked,” and he hired Jake Bass to get naked with him.
And I probably shouldn’t have heard of Wilder Green — the video premiered exclusively on NewNowNext yesterday, and it’s his first.
There’s no word on how he might know Jake, but Jake is cast here as an ex-boyfriend, I guess.
It’s the debut video for the 27-year-old Virginia native, who wanted to tell the story of his first love. “I’m afraid I treated love akin to how western civilization’s treated wilderness – something to overanalyze, conquer, and tame,” he tells us. “I’ve clearly not been able to totally let it go or heal from it (him?) and my art is my most earnest attempt at honoring those emotions & re-mystifying all the beautiful wild feelings that came along with them.”
Anyway, don’t get your hopes up for dick — there isn’t any.
