Indie88 Premiere: ‘Schitt’s Creek’ star Noah Reid shares video for single ‘Jacob’s Dream’

Reid's sophomore album 'Gemini' is set for release in May 2020

Singer-songwriter Noah Reid, who plays Patrick on Canadian comedy series Schitt’s Creek, has shared a video for his single “Jacob’s Dream.”

Reid wrote the track in the back seat of a car while on a family trip to Bulgaria, as he was listening to his father telling a biblical story a work of art was based on. The lyrics for “Jacob’s Dream” are inspired by Reid’s interpretation of the story, which follows Jacob, who dreams he wrestled an angel and, upon walking, walked with a limp for the rest of his live. “Blessings are hard to come by and they cost you something,” Reid explains. “We’re all wrestling with angels in our own way.”

Reid’s songwriting style is inspired by singer-songwriters of the seventies, as each of his tracks come packed with honest, punchy lyrics. The accompanying warm, Aidan Shipley-directed and shot video for “Jacob’s Dream” sees Reid performing the track delicately on an acoustic guitar while sitting on a roof.
