Haley Reinhart Releases New Single, Music Video

Reinhart’s new single is called “Off the Ground.” She shared on Instagram that Rodriguez, who co-directed the music video with her, is her favorite director. Reinhart teased the eight-minute video on social media in the days leading up to its premiere.

The short film features Reinhart playing two characters — a therapist and a patient. As the patient, she talks about her dreams and reveals that she sees her “higher self” on the beach with her head in the clouds. The therapist advises her to follow her inner voice, which is where the song begins.

The chill and uplifting songs shows off Reinhart’s beautiful voice, as she sings, “Gotta keep off the ground / All the dreams you want are real now / Gotta reach up through the highest cloud / Can’t imagine ever coming down.”

The singer shared her excitement about the new single on Instagram, writing, “My hope is that this song and the video will help inspire everyone listening to manifest their reality!”
