Taken from recent album 'Bermuda Waterfall', the Please Set Me Free video was directed by Ludwig Plath (who goes by the name Touchy Mob) and was shot on Savage's most recent tour in Berlin and Moscow. He's about to hit the road again (you can check those dates below), and provided us with a guide to the song, which in turn unlocks elements of the video.
Sean Nicholas Savage: "i used to walk down to china town and get some rice and tea, or a pastry for lunch in montreal. even after i’d moved away, when i’d visit, it was a nice thing to do alone on a rainy afternoon. with my girlfriend working over near the college close by.
the sentiment of the tune is just "save me from this",
from this city, from this job.
like the abstract idea of ‘world peace’ disturbs me.
i think ‘world compromise’ is a more tangible and practical message to push, right?
so in this love song, i long to compromise the trippy nightmare my dreams and passions have become, for freedom, sacrifice for love, and be free with my lover, in the sense that we
would have each other to escape to.
‘come together and free each other’."
