Lucy Rose has today unveiled the stunning video for her new single ‘Second Chance’, a track which is lifted from her acclaimed third album, ‘Something’s Changing’, out now through Communion Records. Rose brings her new record to Cambridge this November when she plays the J2 on the 23rd, tickets on sale here.
Starring the Olympic Gold Medal winning cyclist Elinor Barker and directed by Joe Connor (Coldplay, Elbow, The Maccabees), the video features an elderly lady flashing back to her heyday as an athlete taking on the challenging and cinematic terrain of the Lake District. Speaking about the personal story behind the song itself and the resulting concept of the inspirational video, Lucy Rose has shared:
“Second Chance was inspired by a conversation I had with my husband’s great aunt on New Year’s Eve. She was looking at an old photo of herself and said ‘Look how lovely I was! It’s funny that I could only think that now of myself as an old lady. Looking back but at the time, I would never have thought that’.
“It really struck a chord with me as I can definitely relate to that. So, I decided from that point onwards that I wanted to use her hindsight and learn from it and see myself differently. Love myself for who I am and not wish to be anything different.”
