Hollywood Undead, ‘Lion’ Lyric Video – Exclusive Premiere

Hollywood Undead

Hollywood Undead have returned to the music scene with their just-released third album, ‘Notes From the Underground.’ Helping to grow the buzz this week is the band’s new lyric video for the song ‘Lion,’ which is exclusively premiering Loudwire (watch below).

The video itself features time-lapsed footage of the sun setting into nightfall over a gated closure, presumably for a lion. In the background, you see a very well maintained grassy area shaded by the neighboring trees.

Lyrically, the song takes you on a journey, opening in more restrained tones with, “I am a lion and I want to be free / Do you see a lion when you look inside of me / Outside the window / Just to watch you as you sleep / Cause I am a lion born from things you cannot be.” But as the track builds, so does the title character’s inner turmoil and the aggression of the song.

Creatively, the track is a little deeper than normal. Johnny 3 Tears recently told us that the band may not always receive artistic credit, but there are moments on the new album where it’s clear that songwriting is something they can do rather well. Though he was not speaking specifically about ‘Lion,’ it’s clear that the group offered something a little more personal on the song.

‘Lion’ can be heard on Hollywood Undead’s ‘Notes From the Underground,’ which is currently available for purchase here. The song follows their previously released video for ‘We Are,’ which was directed by Slipknot‘s Shawn Crahan. The band just launched their North American tour in support of the album.
