Music videoEdit

"Sad Song" directed by Ana Veselic, has a very stylized look that blends a couple of different eras. Blake says: "The video is very film noir with an '80s feel to it, like we have the Maxell shot in there."

The video is shot as a 1940s film-noir style story about the end of a couple’s relationship, highlighted with some 40s-meets-80s style fashion and video editing. The female lead is played by Casey Carlson who was also an American Idol contestant in the recent season 8.

Blake says: "I was, like, Wow, this girl has the most beautiful face. It's very classic. So I reached out to her, and she said yes. We got the video done a couple weeks ago, and it turned out really, really well. I'm very proud of it"[2]

The Video was released on September 21, 2009, one day prior to the official release on his MySpace.
