“When we were in the studio laying down tracks for this song, I could visualize the ‘surprise,’ and where the song would sit on the album. I was confident that this song would inevitably lead to a music video, so it was important for me to have the instrumentation complement the story in a literal and powerful way. So as a surprise, we left most of the band out until the final chorus. Before a storyboard was even drawn up for the video, I knew I’d be sitting at a grand piano, and I knew we’d be throwing a party. I also knew which moment the lights would turn on, confetti canons would explode, and when everyone would yell SURPRISE! Cecil Johnson (Director) did a beautiful job bringing this story to life. Even though the ‘surprise’ is not really a surprise, the video is incredibly moving and perfectly captures the intention and emotion behind every line.” – Mallory Johnson explained

The “Surprise Party” video was released on New Year’s Day 2023 to give fans a special visual gift to welcome in the new year. The emotive single possesses saturated drums and piano-laden instrumentation flavored with Adult Contemporary, Americana, and Country elements. Furthermore, “Surprise Party” is the title track of Mallory Johnson’s critically acclaimed debut album.
