It’s something a lot of us have been guilty of doing – telling teenagers and those in their early 20s that they’re too young to have enough life experience to understand certain things. Alli Haber knows this all too well, and the teenager tells the world how she feels in her debut single and video, ‘Too Young’.
‘Too Young’ is a finely crafted pop track, and has the uplifting mesage that maybe, just maybe, young people should be taking time to enjoy their lives rather than concern themselves with issues that they have a lifetime to worry about.
Alli encourages the choice to stand back and look at the forest, not just the trees: without being naive about it, she sets out to show that yes, the world is full of angst, but it’s a choice to not become too weighed down by it. Speaking of the track, she says,
‘Too Young’ is about holding on to the optimism and ideals of youth. It is an anthem encouraging young people to celebrate living in the moment, being free and embracing all the positive things about being young, despite negativity from others.
Alli collaborated with Frankie Jonas, the youngest of the well known Jonas siblings. Frankie co-wrote the track with Alli, and produced it for her.
I loved working with Alli. This single represents so much of Alli’s passion for expression, and it shows how powerful her intensity makes the song.
The video for ‘Too Young’ takes hold of the carefree nature of the song, and takes place in a picture-perfect world of sun, sea, and sand…oh and school too. There’s also a funfair as well, all of which go with the message of the song, which has Alli declaring that she hopes she’s “always too young to hate”. It’s a message we can all learn from.
