Rhys Lewis Releases New Song “Midnight”
British singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis released a new song “Midnight” along with a music video on September 23, 2022.
The song follows up “Simple”, which was released back in July.
When the lockdown was over, Rhys Lewis thought of playing live again and to sing with a crowd of people, and wrote the song.
The track was written by Edd Holloway, Nick Atkinson and Rhys Lewis. Produced by Aidan Glover and Rhys Lewis.
Rhys Lewis said of the song, “To me, [the song] 'Midnight' is pure escapism. The day before I wrote this song, someone asked me when I might be able to start gigging again. The thought of playing live to a room full of people genuinely gave me goosebumps. I was keen to have a track with that kind of energy, something that would feel incredible to sing with a crowd. This is the song that I wanted to play live for the first time in a sweaty venue, with a sweaty band, just like old times.”
The accompanying video was directed by Simon Lane, who followed four actors dreaming of their first big role as a superhero.
Rhys Lewis said, “When I started to think about a video for the song, the 80s aesthetic and lyrical melodrama conjured in my head the image of a group of superheroes. In all the superhero stories we know and love, ordinary people can suddenly become extraordinary.”
- He shared on social media, “I wrote 'Midnight' at the end of one of the lockdowns, when the world was finally opening up again. After months of isolation, I was craving something spontaneous and uninhibited, some kind of escape from the limbo that we'd all found ourselves enduring. I was also really missing playing live, so felt like writing a song that would feel amazing to sing with a crowd of people. This is the song that I ended up writing and I can't wait to sing it with you all in a sweaty venue at some point very soon. Until then, go and listen to it really loudly please x”
