What’s better than a Luke Bryan lyric video? How about one that you can interact with? Luke Bryan has released his first-ever interactive music video for his song “Home Alone Tonight”. The song is a duet with Little Big Town‘s Karen Fairchild and features a computer-generated bar/music venue that you can choose where to go by moving the controls at the top left of the video.
The two-story, virtual venue has everything you might expect to find in the real life counterpart. There is a empty stage, bar, tables with drinks, a pool table, and dance floor. Turn the scene all the way around to see a sign for Georgia State Highway 32, a road that runs straight through Bryan’s hometown of Leesburg, Georgia. The televisions are also on and you find yourself trying to decipher what’s playing. One looks like a sports game while another looks very similar to singer Brad Paisley. The video uses 360 technology to accomplish all of this.
If you are viewing the music video with a smartphone, you can move your phone to see the different viewpoints and change perspectives.
“We really wanted to do something cool for the lyric video, and when they told me about the 360 experience, I said, ‘Let’s do it,’” Bryan tells Mashable. “I wanted to give fans something fun to interact with.”
“Home Alone Tonight” is the third single from his recent album Kill the Lights. Bryan and Fairchild performed the song together at the American Music Awards in November.
Bryan has had a very busy 2015 with the release of Kill the Lights, and a successful North American tour. He told Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper that he plans to take it easy this Christmas by “trying to hang out around the house, do a little shopping, a little Santa Clausing.”
