Texas country singer Ryan Beaver faces fear and loss head-on in his gripping new video for “Dark.”

The lead single from Beaver’s upcoming album Rx, set for release on May 6, has an edgy and experimental sound that still manages to stay firmly rooted in country. The haunting song has a stormy, anthemic quality driven by waves of beautiful instrumentation set alongside his gritty and emotional vocals.

Fittingly, the track’s video shows Beaver traveling through rooms filled with streams of light and darkness, mimicking the ups and downs he’s faced on his own journey though life.

“I was going through a really hard period in my life when we wrote this song, struggling with accepting the sudden loss of both my grandfather and close friend,” Beaver said in a press release. “I remember thinking that the world didn’t make much sense to me. I just walked around feeling like this big storm had moved in and wouldn’t leave. I wasn’t handling it well and lost my faith, lost a relationship but once I turned to music, this song, the healing process began.”
