Gavin DeGraw shared his new video for “She Sets the World on Fire” today (September 1). The song appears on his upcoming album Something Worth Saving.
The anthemic love song tells the story of a woman who sweeps DeGraw off his feet, and for the visual treatment he sings his lady’s praises for being as intelligent as she is beautiful. Model Jessica Vargas stars as DeGraw’s love interest in the video. On the cusp of a big meeting for a new phone technology she’s designed, the video flashes back to the 1980s when she was working out of her apartment with a group of women. It’s part Silicon Valley meets Apple Computers’ origin story.
Dressed like a college kid, DeGraw watches from the background as his brilliant girlfriend succeeds in her quest. Fast forward to the present, and they are still together. His keyboard has gotten an upgrade to a baby grand piano, though.
Something Worth Saving marks DeGraw’s first new album in three years, and arrives September 9th.
