Tom Grennan Drops New Music Video for “Little Bit of Love”
- London-based singer-songwriter Tom Grennan will his upcoming sophomore album “Evering Road” on March 5, 2021.
The album comprises of 14-track and was preceded by “This Is the Place”, “Oh Please”, “Amen” and “Little Bit of Love”. It is his first LP in the three years.
From the album, he dropped a new music video for “Little Bit of Love” on January 15, 2021.
The track was written by LOSTBOY, Daniel Bryer, Mike Needle and Tom Grennan. The video was directed by Keane Shaw.
Tom Grennan said of the song, “It’s all about unconditional love and having the right to feel love and be loved, no matter who you are or where are you. Feeling like you belong and having that sense of belonging, I think right now that’s the most important thing.”
He explained of the video, “This video is a representation of toxic masculinity and unconditional love, told via a story of two brothers. It was amazing to bring my song to life with one of my closest and long-time friends Keane Shaw, not only a close friend but someone who’s artistic vision I admire immensely.”
- Keane Shaw added, "With the video for Little Bit Of Love, I wanted to avoid the classic ‘girl meets boy’ narrative. Instead of looking at the lyrics from a romantical perspective, I chose to look at them from somebody asking to be loved, supported, cared for, in particular a male.”
He continued, “Being a very close friend of Tom’s, often we’ve discussed the issue of toxic masculinity. Being brought up in working class areas where traits of this nature live strong, at some point in our lives we’ve both witnessed the phrase, 'boys will boys' playing out.
We wanted to work this narrative into the film by using a semi-autobiographical thread of Tom’s real relationship with his little brother. Played by the amazing Luke Kelly, a young child who’s only worry in life is to learn how to swim. We also see a tender side to Tom’s character, being the sole carer for both him and his brother, bowing down to both financial, and peer pressures, as a darker path emerges.”
