Created by rising theatrical songwriter Contreras (All the Kids are Doing It, "Love Me, Love Me Not: The Music of Joey Contreras"), the series strives to present new material in a sleek, intimate format, à la MTV-style music videos.
"We are capturing stories with these songs," Contreras previously told Playbill.com. "I want the heart, the soul, the vulnerability, the nuances of these emotions expressed through each video, and I think we'll be able to catch that magic — especially with the talent we'll be working with!"
"I Still Love You," written by Gwon (Ordinary Days), features Thompson accompanied by Gwon on piano.
