Former Maverick and CBS recording artist Keaton Simons has just released his new album, titled Beautiful Pain. The album was co-produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen of Lurssen Mastering. The album features co-writes with friends and peers Jason Mraz, Jason Reeves, and Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) amongst others. Fans can purchase the album on Amazon and iTunes, and can stream the album in full here.
Earlier this month Keaton premiered the visually gorgeous video for current single “Beautiful Pain.” The video was directed by Nick Spanos and executive produced by long time friend, and star of the Showtime series Californication, David Duchovny. The video can be seen here.
“This song has tremendous personal meaning to me. I wanted to show the extraordinary side of real, everyday people, and illustrate that love is worth fighting for,” said Simons when asked about the video’s concept.
