Global phenomenon Dermot Kennedy today releases the alternative official video to his latest single ‘Giants’. The live action video follows the animated video released in July and Dermot’s hugely successful ‘Some Summer Night’ live streamed pay-per-view concert from the Natural History Museum on July 30th.
After working on the animated video for ‘Giants’ during the start of lockdown when Ireland was under strict regulations, this new video was created once that started to ease off and Dermot got the opportunity to shoot a second visual – something that would so perfectly depict how he and millions of fans around the world had been feeling. It touches on everything he’s missed and hoped for over the recent months, with both videos following the theme of running to new beginnings and hoping for change.
“It felt so special to be given this unique view of Dublin City while it was at a standstill. Having spent the last few years travelling, often feeling very detached from home, this felt like the perfect way to reconnect with my roots. This video represents the longing I feel for playing music for people. I miss it so much, and I want this video to take you on a journey back to the way things were when we got to sing together. We will get there again.”
Dermot’s recent unique pay-per-view performance ‘Some Summer Night’, which streamed live from The Natural History Museum in London, sold over 30,000 tickets and is currently the biggest selling concert of its type across America and Europe. The show also featured a guest appearance from actor Paul Mescal from the BBC show ‘Normal People’, who appeared on guest vocals during ‘Giants’ and co-wrote spoken word pieces with Dermot that he performed in between songs.
Alongside his #1 selling debut album ‘Without Fear’, Dermot has now reached over a billion streams globally and single ‘Outnumbered’ has gone multi-platinum across the UK, Europe and Canada. With shows selling out internationally, he’s sold over 300,000 tickets in the last year alone and was nominated in the ‘Best International Male’ category at the 2020 Brit Awards.
