Dermot Kennedy has released a brand new alternative music video for his latest single ‘Giants’.
The live action visuals follow July’s animated video as well as Dermot’s hugely successful ‘Some Summer Night’ live streamed pay-per-view concert from the Natural History Museum in London.
Filmed once Ireland’s lockdown restrictions started to ease, the video represents how Dermot and millions of fans around the world had been feeling and once again follows the theme of running to new beginnings and hoping for change.
The singer commented, “It felt so special to be given this unique view of Dublin City while it was at a standstill. Having spent the last few years travelling, often feeling very detached from home, this felt like the perfect way to reconnect with my roots. This video represents the longing I feel for playing music for people. I miss it so much, and I want this video to take you on a journey back to the way things were when we got to sing together. We will get there again.”
