Mark has been in the studio for the past 2.5 years, working on a new record, which will be his first full studio release. Mark said the first single from his record is dropping on May 5, and we’ll also be able to see the video, which was directed by fellow DWTS pro (and Mark’s best friend since childhood) Derek Hough.
The song is called "Get My Name,” Mark said, and it's about a guy who's kind of fed up with looking for love, but then he meets this girl and feels an instant connection with her. He doesn't want a relationship, but he's so into her that he knows she's going to get his name.
Mark said they just shot the music video yesterday at The Sayers Club in L.A. It will feature 12 dancers and an eight-piece band, and Mark compared it to a mini movie. He said it’ll "blow your mind”! There’s a cameo in the video from a dancer we'll recognize, one of his favorites. It’s probably fellow DWTS pro Witney Carson, since he talked about her earlier in the live chat — he’s known her since she was a kid — and hinted that it’s her.
Get more details @MarkBallas. Congrats, Mark! We can’t wait to hear “Get My Name” and see the video…
