Dermot Kennedy New Single ‘Giants’
Dermot Kennedy has shared brand new single ‘Giants’, his first new music since dropping his No.1 selling debut album ‘Without Fear’ in October 2019.
Taking inspiration from Leslie Dwight’s poem ‘What If 2020 Isn’t Cancelled?’ and in the wake of recent events, Dermot commented on the track saying, “Change hurts and growing hurts. Giants is a song about just that, steeped in bittersweet nostalgia. It’s about acknowledging our loss of youth and how time inevitably changes things. Yet in the same breath the song is an encouragement to be brave – individually, and collectively. Walking into an unknown future together can be beautiful just as much as it is scary. As events have unfolded over the last few months and have at times felt hopeless, this song has carried me through as a reminder that the future is still full of hope and there is opportunity in the darkness and a brighter future can await.
I want people to listen to this song and hold on to that thought. Let go of the past and grab the change that is in front of us, and make it for the better. Even if it hurts. The time is now.”
