Filmed in Dublin during lockdown, the alternative official video is an ode to live gigs

Dermot Kennedy has been busy in recent months, not only performing a soldout live gig at the National History Museum in London, but he has just dropped a new music video.

The video is an alternative official video for his hit Giants. An animated video was released earlier this year, but Dermot has been working on this new video through lockdown.

The new video captures how he and his fans are feeling while life as normal is on hold, and hoping for new beginnings and change.

“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,” he says.

Dermot’s recent unique pay-per-view performance ‘Some Summer Night’, which streamed live from The Natural History Museum in London, sold over 30,000 tickets and is currently the biggest selling concert of its type across America and Europe. The show also featured a guest appearance from actor Paul Mescal from the BBC show Normal People, who appeared on guest vocals during Giants and co-wrote spoken word pieces with Dermot that he performed in between songs.
