Following six singles and one album, 'Songs I Wrote In My Bedroom', Anson Seabra sees out 2020 with a new video for his song, 'Walked Through Hell'. His latest release is a new song not found on the 15 track album that came out in May this year.
The video for 'Walked Through Hell' has taken a while to be previewed, dropping as it did just ahead of Christmas Day, a full month after the song's release. The 'Robin Hood' and 'Welcome To Wonderland' singer-songwriter doesn't exactly stray far from his roots on his latest track, sticking to the trusted formula that has so far paid huge dividends.
Seabra's piano lead ballads are soft tender affairs and 'Walked Through Hell' is no exception. Although the title may not suggest so Anson's new material is just as heartfelt and emotional as any other he has written and sung to date. If anything Seabra's new song has a rawness to it and is more pointed and decidedly more potent in it's lyrical observations. The delivery remains emotive and soulful but on 'Walked Through Hell' Anson Seabra is hurting.
"I guess all the mountains that I moved just weren't enough. And all those nights I walked you home, From crowded bars when you were drunk, Well they meant nothing 'cause you up and walked away, And I just wonder what it'd take to make you stay" Seabra sings as he pours his heart out.
The long awaited video sees Anson mainly seated at a piano outside, singing of his torment as he looks back on better times. "I would've walked through hell, To find another way, I would've laid me down, If I knew that you would stay". His turn of phrase has a cutting edge that bites deep, "It must be nice to love someone who puts you first, Then walk away when they expect it in return" he sings.
