The likes of Harry Styles and Miley Cyrus have worked tirelessly over the years to prove that when an established star decided to merge the boundaries of film and music, it can be a beautiful thing. Set to join this list of multi-talented artists is Pitch Perfect‘s Skylar Astin, as he kickstarts his solo music career with debut single, ” Without You”.

And, accompanying the infectious cut is a set of newly released visuals. Under the haze of warm ruby lights, watch the multifaceted creative draw on his acting skills as watchers can enjoy the scenes of him heading to a party filled with glistening glitter balls and embroiled in post-night out introspection, furthering the exciting and romantic messaging at the heart of the track.
