New Release & Video: Lucy Rose – Second Chance

Lucy Rose has today unveiled the video for her new single Second Chance, a track which is lifted from her acclaimed third album, Something’s Changing

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”

Speaking go her involvement in the filming, Elinor Barker adds: “often it seems like its only when you can look back on yourself as if you were a different person that you can compliment yourself, and it was good to be able to confront that in making this video”

With a backpack, acoustic guitar and video-camera, Lucy recently zig-zagged through Latin American cities, sleeping on fans’ floors and sofas. The adventure was documented and found a release alongside the album’s release of the same title
