We’re not sure how Chaz Cardigan does it… He seemingly takes self-scrutiny to a celebratory level with catchy as hell choruses and bouncy beats.
Chaz’s latest single “S.O.S.” is no different!
While vowing not to pull the S.O.S. in his relationships, Chaz acknowledges a tendency to self-sabotage and admits, “I’ve got a way of getting in my way.”
Chaz produced the song, which he wrote with Better Than Ezra’s Kevin Griffin. Frequent collaborator Jamie Lidell (Lianne La Havas, Hailee Steinfeld) provided additional production.
In addition to the release of “S.O.S.,” Chaz did an hour-long livestream concert, presented by Earmilk, and released two videos.
In this clip, Chaz performs a stripped version of “As I’ll Ever Be,” accompanying himself on piano. The song appears on the soundtrack for the hit Netflix film To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.

Additionally, Chaz released the quarantine edition of “Not OK!”–the EP’s lead single. Echoing the song’s theme of accepting imperfections, the clip expresses optimism and levity at a time when we all must find peace in being “not OK.”
Directed by Will Kendrick (Noah Cyrus, Kaskade, Ice Cube and the award-winning sci-fi short film STORM), the clip embraces the conditions uniting us and features a variety of shot-at-home setups including split-screen effects, Chaz and band performance footage and 50+ video clips submitted by fans, culminating in a virtual club show.
