Ron Gallo has shared another single from Stardust Birthday Party, out Oct. 5 via New West, along with an accompanying video. “Do You Love Your Company?” is the third single from the album.
The “Do You Love Your Company?” video acts as a companion piece to Gallo’s previous video for “Always Elsewhere.” In that video, Gallo walks around with a box titled “SELF” and at the end he crawls inside, which is where “Do You Love Your Company?” picks up.
The video features a close-up of Gallo’s face in what looks to be a cross between a police interrogation and the cover of Queen’s second album. He’s accosted by a grainy television playing footage of himself in a blank white expanse. In some ways, it’s a literal self-interrogation. “When you live with yourself, when you stick with yourself, do you love your company?” Gallo asks Gallo.
”’Do You Love Your Company?’ is a song about self-inquiry,” Gallo says. “I think a lot of people struggle with being truly alone or fear silence because it forces them to look inward, but ultimately I think it’s one of the most important things we can do to understand ourselves and others.”
