New Release & Video: Nick Mulvey – Myela

Nick Mulvey has unveiled the powerful visuals for Myela, the new single lifted from his forthcoming second album, Wake Up Now, available on 8th September

Myela was written by Nick and his fellow band-mate/collaborator Federico Bruno, in a direct response to the refugee crisis. Nick drew exclusively from reading first-hand accounts of the devastation to create a song that he hopes could humanise and draw attention to the cause, and to raise funds for charity as a song

Watch the video for Myela below…

The video was directed by Iranian director Majid Adin. It draws on Majid’s personal experience as a refugee after fleeing his native Iran, travelling across Europe, spending time in the infamous Calais Jungle and successfully securing asylum here in the UK. Majid had the opportunity to direct the music video for Elton John’s 1972 hit Rocket Man as part of THE CUT global competition. The pertinence of the subject within Myela spoke to him vividly, and the collaboration is a beautifully unique, moving interpretation of Nick’s words

The song was also released in collaboration with Help Refugees UK, a grassroots humanitarian organisation, with all Nick’s proceeds from the song going to help their cause – aiding those affected by the refugee crisis. Nick will also perform as part of the Give A Home For Human Rights Campaign on 20th September in association with Amnesty

Nick will tour the UK and Ireland in September and October, visiting…
