James Righton has released a video for his track “Something More” which perfectly captures the feeling of being an outsider. The video was directed by Simon Amstell as part of Channel 4’s short film strand Random Acts, and shows Righton play a heartbroken, makeup-less man in a world of clowns.
“Lyrically, I was reaching for something fitting with the mood: something romantic, nostalgic. Something that the lonely drunk would sing at the end of the night,” explained Righton. “Simon and I have become friends over the last couple of years. I’ve always been a fan of his work and was thrilled when he wrote a treatment for my song ‘Something More’. The video taps into the themes of lost innocence and the human desire to want to be something other. We had a lot of fun filming the video.”
