Dermot Kennedy – Giants

Global phenomenon DERMOT KENNEDY today releases the brand-new video for latest single ‘GIANTS’. The animated short, exclusively premiered by FLAUNT, follows the announcement of Dermot’s upcoming pay-per-view gig that’s to be performed at the Natural History Museum in London on July 30th. Watch the video HERE.

The animated video, created by Trizz Studios and directed by Oriol Puig, takes its cues from nature and creates a beautiful and surreal setting for Dermot’s lyrics to take shape and form their meaning.

On the thinking behind the video Puig said;

“We started with the simplest expression, a spark to ignite the journey. We then created a subject and we set it in constant motion, sometimes struggling through different situations, others stopping to enjoy moments of simple beauty, a metaphor for a constantly evolving life. Coronavirus has made people rethink their relationship to nature and how that affects our actions. It’s made us rethink and visualize the impact we have and how quickly nature is able to self-heal. This brings us to a new set of emotions and a new angle on what our priorities should be.”

Expanding on this, Dermot explains;

“Nature has long been a recurring influence for my music and to celebrate and explore the scale and beauty of the natural world with this video felt instinctive.

In this time of great uncertainty and as we are forced to acknowledge how fragile and complex life is, the journey this video takes is important figuratively and physically. Change is inevitable and necessary but also challenging. A new world and a new beginning underpin the message of the song and this video.”

‘Some Summer Night’ will be Dermot’s first proper live show since his headline US tour in March where he sold out New York’s prestigious Radio City Music Hall. The live-streamed event has already broken records in the UK, US, and Europe for the largest number of ticket sales for a pay-per-view gig of this scale. Tickets are on sale now via Driift and the event will include a charity element with optional donation to the Black Lives Matter Global Network. The show will feature exclusive one-off versions of fan-favorites as well as an appearance from Paul Mescal, star of the hit global BBC show ‘Normal People’.  Next year will also see Dermot’s rescheduled live dates from 2020 take place during July & August, with shows at Chicago’s Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre kicking off the North American dates.

Alongside his #1 selling debut album ‘Without Fear’, Dermot has now reached over a billion streams globally and single ‘Outnumbered’ has gone multi-platinum across the UK, Europe, and Canada. With shows selling out everywhere he sold over 300,000 tickets globally in the last year alone and was nominated in the ‘Best International Male’ category at the 2020 Brit Awards.

Dermot Kennedy – Giants

Today, Dermot Kennedy releases the brand new single “Giants,” the first new music since his #1 debut last year. “Giants” is available across all DSPs now.

When thinking about what “Giants” means to him in the wake of recent events, and what it could mean to other people, Dermot took inspiration from the poem “What if 2020 Isn’t Cancelled?” by Leslie Dwight. The poem highlights the need for change and how this year could serve as a wake up call.

Speaking on the track, Dermot says “Change hurts and growing hurts. Giants is a song about just that, steeped in bittersweet nostalgia. It’s about acknowledging our loss of youth and how time inevitably changes things. Yet in the same breath the song is an encouragement to be brave – individually, and collectively. Walking into an unknown future together can be beautiful just as much as it is scary. As events have unfolded over the last few months and have at times felt hopeless, this song has carried me through as a reminder that the future is still full of hope and there is opportunity in the darkness and a brighter future can await.

“I want people to listen to this song and hold on to that thought. Let go of the past and grab the change that is in front of us, and make it for the better. Even if it hurts. The time is now,” he continued.

Rescheduled live dates for Dermot’s North American Tour have also been announced for July & August 2021, with shows at Chicago’s Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre kicking off the North American dates, all rescheduled from August and September of this year.

The New York Giants and inCourage Announce New Partnership To Improve The Lives of Young Players On and Off The Field

The New York Giants and inCourage, a national organization devoted to keeping kids playing organized sports, today announced a new partnership that will further their shared commitment to educational programming to help combat declining youth sports participation rates. The partnership is focused on delivering evidence-based solutions to some of the most pervasive problems facing youth sports.

“The New York Giants have a longstanding history of supporting initiatives that improve the lives and well-being of youth, and our partnership with inCourage enables us to expand our relationships in this focus area”, said Allison Stangeby, VP of Community Relations, of the New York Football Giants.

Ted Shaker. CEO of inCourage, acknowledged the significance of the New York Giants’ support. “The solution-based videos and resources that inCourage creates would not be possible without impactful partnerships like the one from the New York Giants, which will directly support our work to prepare student athletes for success on and off the field,” he said.
