The clip takes fans inside Young’s private life at home with his wife, Taylor, and daughter, Presley. Featuring special home footage of the family of three, the video was directed by Young’s longtime collaborator Seth Kupersmith and was shot using only one camera and a drone to comply with social distancing guidelines.
The “Lady” video is a perfectly visualizer for the song as it was written in honor of Taylor and Presley.
The emotional track finds Young finds Young crooning over his undying love for his baby girl and confessing that he hopes she follows in her mother’s footsteps.
“I hope you look just like your momma/ And love her like I do/ You’ll see close to perfect patience/ If you watch your every move/ You can always run to daddy/ You’ll always be my baby, but/ Look at her, baby girl/ And you’ll learn/ How to be a lady/ Just how to be a lady,” Young sings on the chorus.
Young recently opened up about his decision to release the poignant tune, revealing that it was an “obvious” single choice.
“In this chapter of my life, it is the most obvious choice for a first single as we’re putting out new music, and so I hope it’s as meaningful to people listening that have children or a family or are planning to,” he explained. “It is really, really special to my wife and I. I can’t wait till my daughter is old enough to hear it and understand it and know that Daddy wrote her a song before she was even here with us. But it’s a special song for me and I hope it really resonates with people.”
