Colouring Shares Video for New Song ‘Love to You, Mate’

    Colouring – the project of Nottingham-based songwriter Jack Kenworthy – has released ‘Love to You, Mate’, the title track off his upcoming album, alongside a video directed by Darshan Gajjar. Check it out below.

    Kenworthy’s life was upended in February 2021, months before the release of his debut LP Wake, when his brother-in-law Greg Baker was diagnosed with stage four cancer. What followed was the most “unbelievable” year of family unity. “I’ve always been on the side of making up scenarios rather than being really honest about my life within my music,” Kenworthy said of the album. “This is the first time I’ve been able to do that. I’ve been less scared of it because it’s not my story. It’s a shared one.”

    The new single, he added, is “the story of Christmas 2021 spent with my wife’s family in hospital together. My brother-in-law Greg became very ill and in hindsight, that period marked the beginning of the end. But through all the worry and uncertainty, we just laughed and cried together in the most incredible ways – it was so special; Greg and the whole family were just amazing. This is a message to all of them and the still-point of the record really.”

    Love To You, Mate is slated for release February 23 via Bella Union.
