With the help of his fans, the making of the new music video for became something wonderful.
“Due to travel restrictions and quarantine laws the video shoot for ‘Too Late’ was cancelled,” said Washed Out. “I asked fans to help me make a new video by sharing footage they’d shot from around the world. The response was overwhelming.”
Washed Out is Ernest Greene, a young guy from Georgia (via South Carolina) who makes bedroom synthpop that sounds blurred and woozily evocative.

I wanted to share a special sunset video of my own (on the last slide when you scroll to the right) – since so many of you shared with me. It was during a vacation to Greece with my wife last year and it was a big inspiration for “Too Late”. This particular night we were in Milos which has this amazing white volcanic rock that nestles right up to the ocean. As you can tell it really catches the light in an interesting way – and I’ll certainly never forget that view. Thanks again for everyone who submitted videos or who gave “Too Late” a spin yesterday. I’m humbled by all of the kind words 🙏🏻
