Nick Hakim Introduces Upcoming Album With New Song Happen

Nick Hakim reveals the first sound of his upcoming Cometa album with the single “Happen.” The video is a slow-motion look at many lives traveling by subway. Director Johan Carlsson explains the pensive song and visual, “The idea for the video is very simple, we see people on a subway, all busy with their different lives, some are in great spirits and some in deep thoughts maybe because of trouble at work or in their personal life. Sometimes when you’re in a public space you’re not interested in your fellow human beings at all and sometimes looking at them is so interesting that you can’t stop. I hope this video can be an example of when people are interesting to look at, in a way that helps you reflect on your own life. I think Nick’s music is fantastic and has a cinematic and visual quality I hope comes through in the video.” 

Cometa’s songs were inspired by Hakim falling in love and wanting to express how it made him feel like he was outside of his body. He says, “I think it’s nice to have love in your life and to have people that are sharing and wanting that. It’s my interpretation of a really romantic way to express love in my own way.” Hakim’s last album was his 2020 release WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD. Cometa is due on October 21st.
