“Forever Young” boasts a seriously relatable narrative to thirty-somethings everywhere. Hidden inside the various fluctuations of Joakim and Co’s brand of synthy pop goodness is an ode to “That weird place between youth and middle age.”

The video for the single demonstrates that sentiment with bits of scratchy, blurry, faded out glory from a universal time of youth through the decades juxtaposed with images of the impending doom of old age and obscurity creeping up on you, bubbling dangerously to the surface like a volcano about to erupt. There is definitely a sense of of being trapped in limbo, waiting to lurch forward, wishing desperately to go back. “Watching the news, taking some pills … you used to be young,” sums it all up doesn’t it? Ah, adulthood.
