Instead, the black and white clip stars actress Halston Sage, who recently appeared alongside Seth Rogan and Zac Efron in the 2014 comedy Neighbors. Shot by photographer and video director Danny Clinch, “Loving You Easy” follows Sage during a relaxed summer day in Venice Beach, where she dances along to a vinyl copy of Jekyll + Hyde, rides around town in a vintage Mustang and hits the beach for an afternoon swim. It’s a stunning, simple video, focusing the audience’s attention on both Sage and the song itself — a throwback soul tune inspired by classic Motown records — rather than Brown and his group of bearded country-rockers.
“Loving You Easy” is the third single from Jekyll + Hyde, which has sold more than 325,000 copies during its first month of release. To help drum up more buzz from the chart-topping record, Zac Brown Band will hit the road this summer, playing festivals and amphitheaters in June before headlining a handful of baseball stadiums — including a three-day run at Boston’s Fenway Park — in July and August. Meanwhile, Sage is gearing up for the release of her newest film Paper Towns, which hits screens July 24th.
