I Want You

Album: Young Blood (2014)
  • Callum Burrows is an English singer-songwriter who performs under the name of Saint Raymond. He hails from Nottingham, the same home town as Jake Bugg, and has been compared a lot to the "Lightning Bolt" singer.
  • Burrows explained the inspiration behind this song to MTV UK: "Like a lot of my songs, this one was written as an upbeat festival tune," he said. "I like doing that when writing, not only thinking about the actual meaning of the song, but also thinking about the reaction of a crowd to it. I think that's really important."
  • The music video, directed by Niall O'Brien, was shot in California, about 50 miles from Death Valley, where the promo's frustrated characters throw themselves off enormous sand dunes. O'Brien also directed videos for Breton's "15 Minutes" in 2014 and King Midas Sound's "Lost" in 2010.
