Humans aren’t meant to live life in by themselves, however, it can be easy to fall into a life of isolation. Loneliness affects us all at one point or another and Leon Bridges explores this in his new music video for “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand.” The video shows Bridges in various settings with people who are suffering from loneliness.

Video director Natalie Rae said, “’Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand’ is about the human desire to connect to each other while we live in a world increasing separating us. We watch Leon unable to be grounded as he floats through the lives of people who are disconnected. As he sings we tap into an increasingly common feeling of disconnection from each other and ourselves. Leon’s tries to feel connected through bringing comfort to the people he crosses like a guardian angel, until we find out who he is looking for. The video leaves us wondering what may linger in loss and regret if we are not able to be present to the relationships around us.”

“Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand” comes from Bridges upcoming album Good Thing, out May 4 via Columbia Records. You can also see his upcoming tour dates below!
