Directed by Waboku Mah, the Asian-influenced animated video depicts what happens to a boy when he listens to music on a CD for the first time. The music ignites his soul, which makes him want to share it and transform the world. Set in the future within an imagined universe, the video is a fun pairing to the track’s sonic offering.
“‘Musician’ was one of the very last songs written for Nurture. The song is meant to feel like a celebration like I’m reveling in the joy of newfound inspiration. If the rest of Nurture is about me trying to find hope for the future, ‘Musician’ is like a celebration of that hope materializing. It was one of the last songs that I wrote for the album, and it’s honestly a celebration of the album itself. That’s where the title comes from. It’s like, ‘Alright, I’ve found my footing, and I know I can really do this now.’ And I just tried to throw all of my rules away and have as much fun as possible. Ironically enough, this is the least sad song on the album, but this is the song that makes me cry. It’s the fun one. I just sound so happy on that song.”Porter Robinson
“Musician” follows previous lauded tracks “Look At The Sky,” which is climbing alternative radio, “Mirror,” “Get Your Wish,” and “Something Comforting.” All five tracks will appear on Robinson’s upcoming album, Nurture due to be released on April 23 in a number of very special physical formats.
