Camp Cope have shared a music video for ‘Sing Your Heart Out’, the closing track off their latest album Running With the Hurricane. Check out the poignant visual, edited by Natalie van den Dungen, below.
The ‘Sing Your Heart Out’ video is a depiction of love as it manifests in Georgia Maq, Sarah Thompson, and Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich’s lives, including a nod to Maq’s fandom of Frightened Rabbit. Speaking about the origins of the track, Maq explained:
Anyone who knows me knows how much Frightened Rabbit means to me, I think I hold the title of most FR tattoos on my body (6). When Camp Cope first flew to the U.S, I departed the plane and connected to LAX wifi, and in my message requests was a message from someone I didn’t know called Simon Liddell. In the message, he told me that he had shown Scott Camp Cope before he passed and that Scott had a lot of nice things to say about it. I burst into tears on the spot. So when we went to Scotland, I invited Simon and his girlfriend to our show, they came along and we’ve been friends ever since. During tours and then lockdowns Simon would send me bits of music he’d written for me to play with, he sent me a little piano part and it became the first half of Sing Your Heart Out.
Simon Liddell, former member of Frightened Rabbit, added: “Sharing music and collaborating remotely was a great way to stay connected with friends during lockdown. I sent Georgia a rough piano sketch which she developed into such a beautiful song – I was thrilled that I could play a small part in this album by one of my favorite bands.”
