Of course, an emotional ballad like it deserves a beautiful music video to go alongside it and James certainly didn’t disappoint. He’s created something which almost serves as a short film within itself, highlighting his incredible storytelling skills and lyricism.
The story begins with James holding an ultrasound scan backstage, showing the moment he discovers he’s going to become a dad right before going on stage. Real-life concert footage features throughout as we get a glimpse into the high life of a rockstar ( think private jets, hot tubs and hotel rooms.)
It’s not all glamorous though, James also calls attention to lonely moments on the road when he goes home to an empty tour bus or drinks alone in a bar. Despite that, the music video is most certainly a love story – to both his expecting partner and his future daughter Emily. It’s packed full of steamy PDA throughout, with dark-haired model Laura Mae Bowes acting opposite him.
Sharing the video on Instagram, James wrote “The video for Emily is out now. Really proud of this one, it was a dream come true to work with @antobyrne75!” tagging director Anthony Byrne.
James recently revealed his hopes of going into acting and it seems to be a great fit so far, as his last music video for ‘September‘ also saw him explore playing a character.
Pre-order his new album It’ll All Make Sense in the End out on 5th November.
