Lucy Rose unveils the video for her new single “Second Chance” from her third album Something’s Changing, out now on Arts & Crafts. The video stars British Olympic Gold Medal winning cyclist Elinor Barker and is directed by Joe Conner (Coldplay, Elbow, The Maccabees).
Rose explains “‘Second Chance’ was inspired by a conversation I had with my husband’s great aunt on New Year’s Eve. She was looking at an old photo of herself and said ‘Look how lovely I was! It’s funny that I could only think that now of myself as an old lady. Looking back, but at the time, I would never have thought that’.”
She further explains “It really struck a chord with me as I can definitely relate to that. So, I decided from that point onwards that I wanted to use her hindsight and learn from it and see myself differently. Love myself for who I am and not wish to be anything different.”
Rose will tour North America this fall with Paul Weller performing special solo acoustic or trio sets. She’ll be postponing her headlining tour until early 2018. Full tour dates can be found below.
Something’s Changing is accompanied by a “fly-on-the-wall” short film documenting her first tour of Latin America last year, a trip that was independently organized by Rose with the help of her fans. The tour was the inspiration for the record and the film serves as an intimate account of this process.
Rose embarked on the making of Something’s Changing following her tour for her second, critically acclaimed album Work It Out. Over time, she noticed a steady stream of tweets reaching her from Latin America, and the unlikely statistic that geographically her music was most popular on Spotify in Mexico City. It gave birth to the seed of an idea that became a real labor of love over the next six months. Lucy offered her fans in Latin America a deal: “If you book me a gig, I’ll come and stay.”
For two months Lucy, with her guitar, a camera and her backpack, toured Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico, playing free shows, staying with fans and “falling back in love with making music.” The documentary of her experience there was inspired by “the kindness and faith in music of those she met including fans blocking the street outside a gig above a launderette, trying to sleep on endless inter-city bus rides and living with families in out-of-the-way towns.” Rose’s husband Will Morris filmed as much as the experience as possible along the way.
