Things are heating up in Canada thanks to the release of the passionate “Québec” music video by LGBTQ singer Tom Goss. Filmed on location in Quebec, the new clip dropped a day before Valentine’s Day 2020 and features actor Daniel Franzese, known for his work in Tina Fey’s 2004 feature film, Mean Girls.

The clip, according to a recent press release, “tells the story of Tom revealing to his husband he is in love with another man after learning of his husband’s infidelity and opening their marriage. Devastated, the chorus recounts Tom’s husband’s words before he broke down, word for word: ‘We are not us. There is another us to us. We are not special. We are no longer special.’”

Commenting on the video, Goss said, “The experience that inspired the song, and video was one of the saddest of my life. Still, in many ways, it was one of the most profound. I feel grateful to have worked with such an amazing creative team, where I could be vulnerable, honest, and naked (literally and figuratively). Hopefully this song and video helps people see beyond themselves, to the unintended consequences that must be considered when handling someone’s heart.”

Tom Goss released his Ian Carmichael-produced fifteen-track seventh album, called Territories, on November 12th, 2019. The video for “Quebec” was recently nominated for best “Indie Music Video” at this year’s Queerties.
