Elgort, who signed to Island Records in 2015, released the official “Thief” treatment this morning (February 3) and instantly cemented himself as 2017’s resident sexy, wet, pushup-performing shadowboxer. The video, which features Elgort’s longtime girlfriend Violetta Komyshan, finds the actor-singer getting sexy in the tub, getting scary on a red light-backed dance floor and getting a little bit Matrix-y while sorting through a series of leather ensembles.
“Skin on my skin / What a wonderful sin / Take your breath, but you’re asking for more / The tip of my finger is tracing your figure / I say goodnight and walk out the door,” Elgort says over buzzy, staccato dance production that might have found another home on a 3OH!3 album.
Elgort, whose July 2016 debut track “Home Alone” really ran the genre-gamut, has said he’s not looking to exclusively tackle one mood or style with his music, and aims to genuinely follow his passion.
“I really respect the dance music industry. I didn’t want to come in and abuse the fact I was an actor and use my name to book gigs,” he told People. “I’m not getting into music because I need to — I have a bunch of movies coming out. I just do this because I love it.”
