‘Back To Life’ Music Video – Out Now!

And the music video for ‘Back To Life’ is out and available for you guys to watch on YouTube! When I originally envisioned a video for ‘Back To Life,’ life was very different. This was pre-pandemic, pre-lockdown. The hope was that lockdown would be over and it would be safe to continue with the original plan before releasing the song but clearly that didn’t happen so I had to come up with a new plan. Considering how set I was on the original plan, that was a struggle but I’m really proud of what Richard and I managed to create under such limitations. Plus we had a blast making it. I hope you enjoy!

Due to the lockdown, it was obviously a challenging video to make, something I definitely want to talk more about. I intend to make another Behind The Video post soon because I think that an experience like this is worth recording, one that I’ve certainly never gone through and one that the industry is having to go to drastic measures to manage. Not only is it interesting to see how everyone is navigating these challenges, it will also be fascinating to look back in a few years time and see how we’ve adapted and what’s changed.

‘Sounds Like Hope’ Music Video – Out Now!

The ‘Sounds Like Hope’ music video is officially out!

I’d always imagined this video animated and I really, really wanted to have Lois – Lois de Silva, who animated the ‘Clarity’ music video – do it because I love her animation style. As I said when we released the ‘Clarity’ video, I’ve known her for a long time, she’s one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met, and I have always wanted to collaborate with her. So the fact that that was possible was absolutely amazing and the plan to have animation in this video is actually what sparked the idea for  having animation in the previous video. I’m so, so grateful to Lois for saying yes and for all the hard work she put into the two videos, but especially this one. Me, Richard (my co-pilot on this whole project), and Lois spent a lot of time discussing how we wanted it to look and I just love how it came out. Lois, you are incredible and it’s an honour to have your art as part of a project that means everything to me.

I love this music video so much and I hope you guys love it too. And if you haven’t heard the song yet, you can buy/stream it here.

laurenalexhooper: AND ‘SOUNDS LIKE HOPE’ IS OUT! ⁣

I wrote this song a while back with one of my favourite people, Richard Marc. I was in the middle of a really bad depressive episode and had been unable to write for months but somehow, we managed to coax this song out of the universe. And it turned out to be a song about hope. 

Please, please buy/stream it. It would mean so much to me and all of the people who have worked so hard on it 💜

I’m kind of anxious about this one coming out, if I’m honest. It’s quite different to the previous two songs, both in pace and in mood, so I’m nervous (although cautiously curious) to see what the reaction is. I hope you like it. And, as always, I hope it makes you feel something.
