Filmore visits "London"
Friday, November 22, 2019
– Filmore is out with a new song, "London," the first of several new releases coming soon from the Curb Records recording artist.
Filmore is also set to join Lauren Alaina for her That Girl Was Me Tour, which kicks off at Nashville's famed Exit/In on Jan. 15, 2020.
"As I continue to put out new music, I want to share more of both who I am as an artist as well as my personal experiences with fans," said Filmore. "This song felt like the perfect place to start sharing the state I'm in. I first visited London for only 12 hours around this same time years ago, and that trip helped inspire the song."
Written by Filmore and John Luke Carter and produced by Zach Abend and Carter, the up-tempo, heartbreak song chronicles the hurt a breakup can create while visiting a place you'd planned to be experience together.
I feel so helpless, and I feel so far away
If you knew where I was, I wonder what you'd say
I feel guilty, and I don't know how to tell you
I saw London without you
"'London' is about visiting a new city alone that you had always planned on seeing with someone special," said the Wildwood, Mo.-native. "All the details in the song relate to missing an ex with the hope of one day coming back to share it all with one another."
Directed by Dusty Barker, the music video for "London" was shot during a 48-hour trip to the city that inspired it. "With my tour schedule, it was a crazy quick trip," Filmore said. "We visited every spot I mention in the song along with some places I've always wanted to see. We walked about eight miles a day, but it was so cool to go back after writing the song and relive those moments."
Filmore will return to London next year as part of C2C Country to Country which will include performances at O2 Arena. Additional European dates for C2C will be announced soon. He expects to release an album in 2020.
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them
Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be.
And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
