Don Diablo & Andy Grammer – “Thousand Faces” music video
“‘Thousand Faces’ is definitely one of my most personal records that I have written so far. Almost seven years ago, I lost the most important man in my life: my father. Since that day, my vision on life has changed drastically. Not long after that, I started achieving all the things I dreamed of most of my life. His passing fueled me with so much passion and dedication which, looking back on it, gave me an unprecedented amount of energy and drive to work harder than ever to make the most out of my life. During these last years, I have often wondered what my Dad would have thought if he could see me now.” – Don Diablo
‘Thousand Faces’ is a personal tune that taps into the heartache attached to losing a parent. The sentimental tune contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the song possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with modern dance and electro-pop components. Furthermore, “Thousand Faces” follows on the heels of Don Diablo’s “Bad” single featuring Moroccan-English artist, Zak Abel. So far, the floor-filling club smash has accumulated over 20 million hits across Spotify and YouTube in only two months.
The Don Diablo-directed music video for “Thousand Faces” contains exclusive footage that Don filmed at the age of 13 with his first home video camera.
“Things got so much bigger than both of us could have even imagined from the last conversations we had. Sometimes, when I am performing in front of thousands of fans, it feels like I can see him standing in the crowd, nodding his head, giving me his approval. I know my story isn’t unique, eventually, we all go through similar experiences. It’s the lessons we learn from these experiences and the way we handle it that sets us apart. I know Andy lost his Mom ten years ago which also made a huge impact on his life. So on top of his incredible vocal talent, he felt like the perfect person to tell my story, and by doing so, also making it his story. At the end of the day, the universal story for all of us.” – Don Diablo
