Phillip Phillips Discusses ‘Searchlight’ [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Phillip Phillips fans, we’re on Day 3 of rolling out exclusive behind-the-scenes content from Phillip’s album, ‘Behind the Light’! He’s already discussed the making of ‘Trigger’ and ‘Open Your Eyes’ (which you can watch here and here, respectively), and now he’s here to talk about the making of ‘Searchlight.’ Peep the video above!

“‘Searchlight’ is really kind of a darker song,” the ‘American Idol’ alum explains. “But it’s also about wanting to find that person who is for you. It’s got an eeriness about it.”

If you ask us, we’re totally digging the unique combination of the track’s haunting sound and hopeful lyrics — which is something that Phillip wanted to make sure came across on the tune.

“The chorus, I think, is very minimal, but the song itself is very big and it’s very organic,” Phillip continues. “I’m hoping people will like that song as well.” We don’t think that will be a problem!

Watch Phillip discuss ‘Searchlight’ in the video above, and don’t forget to keep it here on PopCrush all week long for more exclusive BTS content about Phillip Phillips’ ‘Behind the Light’ tracks. You can buy his ‘Behind the Light’ album here.
