We are thrilled to announce that our video for Come On Out will premiere tomorrow, Wednesday, April 1 at 10am PT on Youtube HERE. Mikel will go live on the Airborne Facebook page 15 minutes prior and directly after the video. He’ll be talking about the video and the album, answering questions and he may play a song or two…
The video was directed by Spanish director Silvia Grav and stars Jacob Sandler, who played a young Brad Pitt in Ad Astra, in an incredible performance as a young Mikel. We are very proud of it. Visually stunning, emotionally poignant, at turns uplifting and heartbreaking, it’s more like a short film. The video is a dramatic adaptation of the chapter in Mikel Jollett’s memoir which was the inspiration for “Come on Out,” in which a 11 year-old Jollett runs away from home due to an abusive step father.
In addition to Sandler, the video stars amazing child actors including Bryce Patterson as a young Daren Taylor, Milo Borghello as a young Steven Chen and Jeremiah Gonzales as a young Adrian Rodriguez.
We can’t wait for you to see it. Tomorrow, 10 AM PST.
stay safe and healthy, everyone–
