Sabrina Carpenter has just released the companion video to new single “Why.” Shot in Los Angeles with director Jay Martin (Shawn Mendes, Christina Perri) and featuring Riverdale star Casey Cott as Carpenter’s love interest, “Why” explores the age-old theory that opposites attract, “and we don’t even know why.”
“Sometimes differences can hold us together and I think that’s a beautiful sentiment to how we deal with divergence and how it can furthermore prove our compatibility,” Carpenter says of the Jeberg-produced song. “In the end, we don’t really need to know ‘why’ if we are confident in our own emotions.”
In support of the new single and video, Carpenter will perform “Why” on Live with Kelly & Ryan August 21.
Carpenter is currently crossing North American on her headlining summer De-Tour, which kicked off July 6 and runs through Aug. 27. The 30+ date summer trek marks Carpenter’s second headline tour, following her sold out EVOLution Tour last fall.
The De-Tour will continue to bring a summer of fun and music across major North American cities such as Denver, Dallas, New Orleans, Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, and Boston before concluding on August 27 in Toronto, ON. The tour, presented by American Tourister, will feature special gue! sts Alex Aiono & New Hope Club on all dates and resumes tomorrow night in Edmonton, AB.
