Preston Lovinggood has released his video for “Taken in The Night,” PRESS HERE to watch video and PRESS HERE to stream. “The video is a metaphor for wanting love in the present and forgiving yourself for the hurt you caused to others and to yourself,” Lovinggood told Substream Magazine, who premiered the new single. “The women in the car represents a romance of the past which leads to the blindness of the protagonist. He is disoriented and can’t see the love that is being offered to him in the now.” Preston does state, “I do think there is a certain hope to the video, though, in the end he is standing outside the car, open to life.”
Of the single, Substream Magazine said, “This isn’t a sugarcoated love ballad: it’s a look at the work that goes in. He sings about all the small moments and challenges that can come with love, and implores the listener to ‘let your guard down’ and work towards a healthier center.”
The single is set to join Lovinggood’s previously released singles, “Moon Fever” and “Everything Will Be Okay,” on his forthcoming album Consequences, set for release May 17 via Last Gang Records. Digital pre-order and limited edition pink vinyl physical pre-order are available now – PRESS HERE.

Managing to conjure a unique soundscape of its own, like sun-kissed, modern pop that pulls off the neat trick of appearing straightforward when, upon further inspection, the music often trails off into subtle psychedelic curls, Lovinggood’s third full-length release, is his most concise, hook-laden album to date. At just under 40 minutes, Consequences, with its rich productions and scrupulous observations peppered through the lyrics begs for repeat listening. “Everything Will Be Okay,” “Taken in the Night,” “Divorce,” and the beautifully orchestrated title-track are breathtaking, sweet, hilarious, hallucinatory, and devastating – often all at once. “Moon Fever” is arguably the spiritual centerpiece of the album.
