“Now we’re gonna set fire to last year
Say goodbye to the songs and old dreams we held dear.”
Irish brothers Alfie and Harry Hudson-Taylor embrace the new year with the release of their brand new single ‘Run With Me’, on Friday 12th January.
‘Run With Me’ is the long-awaited follow up to Irish radio smash ‘Feel It Again’, which was one of the biggest airplay hits of 2017, and has clocked up over 2 million streams so far. Like ‘Feel It Again’, ‘Run With Me’ was produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work with Lumineers and Vance Joy, and mixed in Dublin by Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Son, Ed Sheeran).
Hudson Taylor worked closely with Dogs Trust Ireland on the video for ‘Run With Me’. Speaking about the video the band said: “‘Run With Me’ is about those friends that are by your side at all times and lift you up whatever you’re going through. Dogs are often that exact type of friend for people and we wanted to make a video that was uplifting and fun but also delivered the message that there are so many dogs in shelters and rescues around the country that just need loving homes. We absolutely loved making this video and we hope people not only enjoy watching it but also consider giving a rescue dog a home and having that dog give them their unconditional love and friendship in return.”
Suzie Carley, Executive Director, Dogs Trust, said: “We are thrilled to join up with for the launch of their fantastic new single! Both Alfie and Harry are huge dog lovers so we were delighted to welcome them to our Rehoming Centre recently, where they shot some scenes for their brand new music video and met some of our beautiful furry residents! It’s so important to raise awareness about adopting instead of buying a dog so we were delighted that the boys asked us to be a part of spreading this message through their video. We all had an amazing experience working with Alfie, Harry and their wonderful team – especially our dogs, who couldn’t resist lots of cuddles and kisses in between takes!”
The new release tees up Hudson Taylor’s exciting touring schedule, which will see the duo and their crack band of amazing musicians on the road through until spring time.
