Just weeks after releasing his new single "Known Like This," emerging Nashville singer-producer Ben Kessler has shared a video for the tantalizing new track.

The clip, which was shot at Kessler's house in Nashville with filmmaker Mossflower Pictures, is said to be a "playful, surrealistic interpretation of the song," which explores the difficulty of connecting with others when the essence of your identity is unknown to them.

"I moved from Nashville to London for the first half of this year with no real plans, contacts or friends," recalls Kessler of the origins for the new song. "For the first time in a long time I felt unknown. My family, friends, values, interests – all the things that form my identity – felt distant, and were unknown to everyone that I was surrounded by. Meeting new people became a reflective thing; I spent a lot of time thinking about how I want to be known, and how I don't."
