matt-gold-appreciated-screengrab.jpgToday is a rainy, snowy, dreary day across much of the country -- but "Appreciated," gay singer/songwriter Matt Gold's newest music video, is sure to make it a fabulous one nonetheless.

The upbeat, catchy song is the first single released from Gold's forthcoming EP, "Let It Out." In the video, which is animated by Per Hoel, Matt meets a magical stranger who helps him transform the gray mundanity of everyday existence into a beautiful rainbow.

If you've ever met someone who's completely reshaped your outlook on life, you'll really appreciate this video. (Get it? Appreciate? Don't worry, you will once you watch it -- you'll be humming this tune all day.)

By the way, in the interest of full disclosure (and shameless bragging), Matt's costar in the video is my husband and Bilerico contributor Michael Knaapen. He and Matt had a blast shooting the video together, and it shows.

"Appreciated" is after the jump. Watch, enjoy, and share! The song is also available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
