Los Angeles, CA — Soulful pop singer-songwriter, Spencer Sutherland, has released the official music video for his single, “Wallpaper.” The new offering just premiered exclusively on Idolator and can be viewed HERE.
“The ‘Wallpaper’ music video is really saying ‘whatever’ to all the stress in life,” says Spencer. “The video is basically showing how easily your brain can play tricks on you, and then there’s a little twist at the end. I love poking fun at ‘serious’ things because life is not that serious!”
“Wallpaper” appears on Spencer’s debut EP, NONE of this has been about you, which was released last month via BMG. The five-track effort is an introspective journey that spotlights his signature tone and falsetto, reminiscent of the 60s with stripped-down 80s-inspired production. Listeners can hear traces of his major influences on the record, ranging from Marvin Gaye and Bruno Mars, to Prince, Elvis, and The Temptations. Spencer’s honest and relatable approach to lyrics, in tandem with his powerful live performances, culminate in what is being lauded as a fresh new sound in pop.
NONE of this has been about you Track Listing:
2. Freaking Out
3. NONE of this has been about you
5. It May Sound Strange

Spencer kicked off 2019 with a bang and is an artist on the rise, to say the least. After inking his first major record deal, he unveiled his infectious lead single, “Sweater,” which scored impressive Apple Music playlisting including Breaking Pop (Global), Best of The Week (#2 spot), Hot Tracks (#1 Pop spot), Top Songs–Pop, and Beats of the Week. The smooth and lush title track from his debut EP also landed on Apple’s The A-List: Pop (Global), Pure Pop 50, and Breaking Pop (Global). Additionally, Spencer racked up his first New Music Friday playlisting on Spotify with “Freaking Out,” his vulnerable and vibrant latest song.
Spencer played his first ever sold out headline shows earlier this year in New York City and Cincinnati and is currently on the road supporting Jack & Jack on a massive tour across North America. The trek stops in Orlando this evening and hits major cities including Atlanta, New York, Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and more.
“I’m so excited to be on tour with Jack & Jack,” says Spencer. “I have so much respect for them, and the shows have been crazy. 2019 is turning out to be an amazing year!”
