Today the U.K.-based band, Bear’s Den, premiered the music video for their track, Crow, from their highly anticipated third album, So that you might hear me, which is set for release on April 26 via Rounder Records.
About the emotional music video:
The video was filmed in four locations across four countries – Nashville, Sao Paulo, London and Brussels –and features real people with their own real stories.
“The song Crow was written in memory of my Mum’s boyfriend who lived with us growing up. He was an awesome guy and somewhere between a father figure and a best friend to me but unfortunately he passed away when I was about 15. I wrote this song as I wanted to acknowledge how important and thankful I am to him for helping to raise me and my sister,” says Andrew Davie (lead vocals, guitar).
“With the story of the song firmly in mind we thought that a music video that celebrated the idea of family would be the most appropriate thing we could do. We receive an overwhelming number of messages from people telling us about their relationships with the songs and their stories of how those songs have interacted with their lives. We wanted to honor those stories and provide an opportunity for their stories to be told somehow. We firmly believe that once a song is written and recorded and available, we cannot claim it to be ours, alone, anymore. This song lyrically encompasses so much of what we stand for. Talking openly about difficult things and also sharing those thoughts with our fans in the hope we can support each other and feel less alone in life’s harder moments. There is a weight to our relationship with our audience that we take seriously and won’t ever take for granted and that’s where the idea for the video for Crow came from.”
