Bryan Lanning is ready to introduce his fans to a whole new sound

The popular YouTube star is releasing his new album, Us, in January and PEOPLE can exclusively debut the video for the album’s second single, “We.”

“Shooting the ‘We’ music video was probably one of the most surreal moments of my life,” says Lanning. “California Highway Patrol actually shut down the road for us so we could safely get the driving shots we needed and I was so grateful for their support. The entire crew was just a blast to work with, but I gotta say my favorite crew member was my wife! Getting to be on set with her all day is like a dream come true. All we had to do was ‘act sexy’ (ha!) and look longingly into each others eyes. Not a bad gig for a 12 hour shoot! I’m so happy with how it turned out because the vibe really sets the tone for the album and the rest of the music videos that are set to be released in the coming months.”

The video for “We” features both Lanning and his wife Missy, who rose to fame after sharing her fertility struggles and baby joy.

“She [wasn’t] nervous at all,” Lanning jokes about his wife on set.

“I think the most important thing that it does is that it paints the concept and what the purpose of the album is,” Lanning says of his single. “People are going to be introduced to the concept of the album lyrically and they are also going to be introduced to this whole new sound that I don’t think anyone was really expecting and I’m really excited to finally share this new sound with everyone.”

Us will be released in January. It is available for pre-order now.
