EXCLUSIVE: Colbie Caillat Reveals Feel-Good 'Goldmine' Video -- Go Behind the Scenes of 'The Malibu Sessions'
By Sophie Schillaci
Welcome to Colbie Caillat's world!
The 31-year-old songstress is taking fans behind the scenes of her latest project, The Malibu Sessions, with her brand new music video for "Goldmine." The video was a collaborative labor of love between Caillat and her fiance, singer-songwriter Justin Young, who whittled down hours of personal footage to create three-and-a-half minutes of sunny, feel-good gems.

"This album is more like my first album, Coco," Caillat said of The Malibu Sessions, which was recorded three years ago in a Malibu beach house.
"It's been in my back pocket," she added with a smile. "I started my own label so I could put it out on my own and do it my way, and I'm really excited about it. The album is just really relaxed, carefree, sunny, and organic. That kinda vibe."
Caillat worked with her longtime songwriting partner, Jason Reeves, on the album, as well as husband-to-be Young and producer John Shanks. The whole crew lived and worked under one roof for the duration of the recording process.
"Everyone together and just kinda living like you never clock in, clock out," she said. "Anytime you want to put something down, you want to record something, you have the opportunity. I didn't want to be driving in and out of L.A. and I thought, 'OK... We can all move into this house with our families and record as much as we want for two months,' and it was such a wonderful experience."
The Malibu Sessions will be released on Oct. 7, followed by a month-long acoustic tour.
"I've always wanted to do a stripped-down tour," she said. "There's gonna be six of us onstage, but it's all stripped down. So there's three acoustic guitars, we have bass, and we have percussion -- tons of harmonies and it's just hearing the songs more as they are, in the raw."
Caillat will be joined on the road by High Dive Heart -- a pop duo consisting of Reeves and his real-life love, Nelly Joy -- and Young.
"We've actually known each other for 10 years now. He joined my band and we didn't start dating for two years after that," Caillat said of her fiance. "We worked together first. We were friends first. And it was really amazing, because we got to travel the world together and then ended up falling in love."
