Claud – A Good Thing


Claud has released a video for new single, “A Good Thing,” to coincide with the release of their impressive sophomore album Supermodels – the first Saddest Factory Records release of 2023.

The new album follows 2021’s much-lauded debut Super Monster. The new song, produced by Claud and Dan Wilson, chronicles a relationship filled with doubt, is accompanied by a video – filmed in both NYC and LA and directed by Christina Xing – starring beloved film actor Paul Rudd.

Claud has been so inspired by Rudd’s movie performances over the years that they titled one of the tracks on Supermodels in tribute to the actor. Having him appear in the new video was a dream come true for the musician.

Says Claud, “Over the last couple months, I’ve revealed the more intimate parts of Supermodels, but now I’m really excited for everyone to hear the windows down radio up moments of my album. Songs like ‘A Good Thing’ and ‘Paul Rudd’ capture an anthemic, everything works out in the end type feeling. That’s why I had to have Paul Rudd in the music video for ‘A Good Thing.’ I met him briefly in passing at a Taylor Swift concert and explained that there was a song on my upcoming album named after him, and he so generously gave me his email asking to hear it. In the email I explained that ‘Paul Rudd’ and many other songs on the record are about me trying to imagine myself as a cool and confident person similar to the types of characters he plays, in contrast to the real-life shy and nervous person I often am. Filming this music video really pushed me out of my shell in a lot of ways, as did making this album. I hope you like Supermodels as much as Paul Rudd and I do!”
