Last week, YUNGBLUD, Halsey and drummer Travis Barker convened to drop the single “11 Minutes.” The song was already fueled by passionate lyrics and a star-studded lineup, and its new music video lends it an extra layer of meaning.
The video, directed by Colin Tilley, explores the emotional states of grief and loss in a cinematic storyline that starts with love and ends in tragedy. YUNGBLUD and Halsey’s chemistry in the video isn’t surprising: The two have effectively confirmed their real-life relationship.
“We don’t realize how much we need something until it’s taken away from us,” YUNGBLUD said in a statement about the video. “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us.”
