'You Always Come to Mind' is a more contemplative piece, employing meditative, shimmering guitars while Smith's vocals reverberate in a soft-yet-confident tone. The song's video is simple but effective, featuring the singer through a glittering and kaleidoscopic lens.
"Wilkosz and Way [the directors] hit the feel of the song spot on. We both liked the idea of a sad party ... Like no one showing up to your surprise birthday (which you planned yourself) and wishing John Cusack would be at your window with a ghetto blaster above his head ... but not wearing pants," the 24-year-old tells Spinner. "I was sure as s--- that the tinsel, balloons and sparklers would make the song less obviously depressing, but it didn't help. It's still pretty sad."
'Tough Cookie' will be released Sept. 6 via Western Famine. Check out the video below for 'You Always Come to Mind.'
