Australia: Kate Miller-Heidke releases her new song "This Is Not Forever’"
Kate Miller-Heidke the Australian Eurovision 2019 representative is back with some fresh music with her brand new single "This is not forever".
The title of Kate's new song might seem to fit the current circumstances urging people to think that the present hard situation won't be the forever, however the song was written before the covid-19 outbreak.
Kate's new song delivers strong a message and on her twitter account explains the deep meaning behind the lines and the song's conception:
"I wrote it about six months ago, before all… this... happened. It’s about watching someone very close to you starting fall into a depression, and wanting to let them know that you’re there for them, in a very serious way."
The music video for the track was a collaboration with director Christiaan Van Vuuren and choreographer Lucas Jervies. It was shot in isolation by each dancer on the phone and subsequently pieced together by Van Vuuren. You can watch the official music video below:
