Liz Longley - "Outta My Head" (video) (Premiere)

The tender, longing "Outta My Head" finds the Nashville-based Liz Longley finding a way to move on from the past -- which, as she sings it, is no small task.

There's a warmth and vulnerability in the video to Liz Longley's tune "Outta My Head", taken from her just released self-titled LP, her fourth full-length. This is due mostly to Longley's openness and honesty in her lyrical pursuits, a thread that runs throughout all of her music but especially Liz Longley. In singing a song of moving on, of finding a way to shed those parts of the past that try their best to cling on, she invites the listener into a space where it's safe to channel one's frustrations with the way life can often feel like it's going backwards despite our best efforts.

Longley tells PopMatters, "I wrote this song while living in Boston, ready to move to New York City and get over an ex. To record this song live with Grammy award winning engineer Gary Paczosa for the video was something I never imagined would happen. Thanks for watching!"
