Lifehouse debut a music video for their latest single "All In". This band fill it with live performance footage from several of their concerts across the country. In addition to giving a look at their on-stage act, it also previews the rehearsal sessions and what they do backstage before and after the show.
"All In" is one of the songs appearing in Lifehouse's latest studio project "Smoke & Mirrors". The song is co-written by the band's member Jason Wade along with Jude Cole. Beside getting help from Cole, this band also enter songwriting booth with Kevin Rudolf for "Halfway Gone" and make a duet with Chris Daughtry in "Had Enough".
"It's about the record being half live and half studio," Jason said of their work with Rudolf. "Kevin brings another side - a hint of the hip hop world but in context with what we're doing. We were fans of his and he was a fan of ours and it just clicked. What resulted was a nice blend of older Lifehouse with a new fresh sound -- we can't make the same record over and over."
As for Daughtry-featuring track, he had this to say, "I haven't done much co-writing in the past and I'm a bit leery of it. You can end up with a song that is not good and just wish you had that day of your life back (laughs) however, I went over to Chris' place in LA and within an hour we had 'Had Enough'."
"All In" music video aside, Lifehouse are scheduled to rock 2010 VH1 Do Something Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on July 19. They are joined by Natasha Bedingfield, Travis McCoy and Bruno Mars on the performers line-up.
