Scottish singer songwriter Kerri Watt is set to launch her emotional new single 'Long Way Home' on July 10th 2015 through 25 Hour Convenience Records, and now unveils a harrowing story video to go with it.
The video opens on a lonely mountain road before focusing on a man and a woman, apparently a couple. The man looks as if he has a difficult secret, and it's later revealed that he's having an affair with another man. They appear to break it off, but then the the second man phones up his lover after being badly beaten on his way home from the pub. At the same time as this shocking news, the woman fines a note detailing her boyfriend's infidelity. He walks out, with only one person on his mind, and procedes to bring down a whole world of pain on his lover's attackers. A combination of gentle strings, melodic piano and of course Kerri's raw, almost country-like vocal, the song is a crescendo of a pop song with plenty of tear-inducing moments.
The song was produced by Richard McNamara of chart-topping Yorshire rock band Embrace and will be available on The Libertines' drummer Gary Powell's record label. 'It's probably the most honest and vulnerable song I've ever written', Kerri confesses. 'I wrote it while I was wrapped up in a moment of confusion and emotion. I felt it was the right time to come out with something a bit more serious that really allows me to express my feelings in the vocals. I'm excited for people to hear another side of me.'
