‘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.

‘Clarity (Academic Remix)’ – Out Now!

And Clarity has a remix! It wasn’t in the original plan that Richard and I put together but somewhere down the line, the idea for a remix came up. And as it has all along, the plan evolved and between Academic and Richard Marc, the remix of ‘Clarity’ was born.

@laurenalexhooper: And it’s here! The ‘Clarity (Academic Remix)’ is now available everywhere! And I’m also excited to announce that the video will be out in a week, on Friday 17th April! It’s all go here… 🙌🙌🙌 Massive thanks again to @academicofficial and @richardmarcmusic for all of your hard work on this project. You guys are just so awesome!

You can find it here!


Again, the biggest of thanks to Academic (Matt Hughes) and Richard Marc for working so hard on this project, on this new version of my song. I’m so, so grateful for their dedication to it and their dedication to making it sound so seamless and perfect. I know nothing about remixes – I don’t even have any instincts – so I really appreciate them both being willing to work so hard on this little ‘detour’ in the Honest journey. They’re both incredibly hardworking, which is something I so admire about them. This never would’ve (or could’ve) happened without them.
