Ahead of their debut album release, W.L., The Snuts have today released their latest single ‘Somebody Loves You‘, which premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show.
The band teamed up with the Scottish Refugee Council to create the video and help raise awareness for the charity. Directed by Michael Sherrington and shot in Glasgow, the video follows the lives of people directly affected by the actions and efforts of the charity, who with the help of the Scottish Refugee Council have made a home in Glasgow. As well as the band donating the video budget to the charity, the band’s label, Parlophone Records, will also donate all proceeds from downloads of the single.
Frontman Jack Cochrane said: “Three simple words: ‘Somebody Loves You’, spray painted all across my city. It is a simple but powerful reminder. As the days disappeared into months, I noticed myself and everyone around me scrambling to stay in touch, to check up on each other. There was something really special about this to me. I don’t think anyone really saw that coming. It shouldn’t take a global pandemic to remind us how important the people we care about are, but I’m kind of glad it did.”
Speaking of the video Jack said, “When our record label asked what we’d do if they gave us the full video budget, immediately we decided to use our platform to help bring attention to the Scottish Refugee Council here in Glasgow. The song for us is a universal message of love and compassion and the work of this charity and others like it is something I am particularly inspired by.” He continued, “It is exactly this sense of an expanding and welcoming community spirit we hope to portray with this video.”
