The music video Chasing The Wires was made in cooperation with YouTube for the release of the YouTube Music app in the Czech Republic. “The album All I Know started to be formed on Sumatra in Indonesia, where I travelled in 2017.

This song is part of his second record All I Know, due to release on June 14, 2019.
