Dermot Kennedy Performs “Giants” on The Graham Norton Show
- Irish singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy appeared on BBC The Graham Norton Show to perform his latest song “Giants”.
The song was released from his debut album “Without Fear” the complete edition, which will be released on November 6, 2020. The original version of the album reached No. 1 on the UK Albums chart.
It was written by KOZ, Scott Harris and Dermot Kennedy.
Dermot Kennedy shared on social media, “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.”
He continued, “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.”
Also, he said of the song in a interview with Radio X, “This is a song that I’ve had on me for a little while, but just the way things currently are things that have taken place in the world, it feels like there’s a massive shift taking place everywhere in the world so its meaning kind of grew and are and grew for me. And certainly now it feels like it’s a delicate time to release music right? You don’t want to bring out something insipid and seem kind of tone deaf. You don’t want people to think you’re not thinking about things and so the meaning of the song […] It’s ultimately just about being comfortable with letting go of the past and moving on and being comfortable with change and moving forward in that sense…"
Recently, he joined in Italian production trio MEDUZA's latest song “Paradise” as guest vocals.
