Dermot Kennedy has released a brand new song about hope

"I want people to listen to this song and hold on to that thought. Let go of the past and grab the change that is in front of us, and make it for the better."

Just as life has started to get better and the lockdown is easing Dermot Kennedy has added to our joy with some new music about letting go of the past and moving forward with hope.

'GIANTS' is the brand new single which is available from today. It's the first bit of new music the singer has released since his chart topping debut last year.

If you like any of his songs you are going to love this one, it's typically Dermot Kennedy, deep, sweet and inspiring. The songs lyrics include the lines: "We used to be giants, when did we stop?" and "The hope and the hurt has lived inside of me. There’s gold in the dirt, I never took the time to see."

'GIANTS' is inspired by the thought provoking poem "'What if 2020 isn't cancelled' by Leslie Dwight that was doing the rounds on social media during lockdown.

Dermot said of the song: “Change hurts and growing hurts. Giants is a song about just that, steeped in bittersweet nostalgia. It’s about acknowledging our loss of youth and how time inevitably changes things."

He explains this particular song has kept him going through the last few months: "As events have unfolded over the last few months and have at times felt hopeless, this song has carried me through as a reminder that the future is still full of hope and there is opportunity in the darkness and a brighter future can await."

"I want people to listen to this song and hold on to that thought. Let go of the past and grab the change that is in front of us, and make it for the better. Even if it hurts. The time is now.”
