Gabby Young & Other Animals - Walk Away video
Story by Jack Foley
GABBY Young And Other Animals release new single Walk Away from their highly acclaimed second album, The Band Called Out For More, on October 1 2012.
Walk Away, Gabby’s first song written on piano, builds to a celebratory horn-infused climax:
“I woke up one morning at 6am,” she says, “and this came out, lyrics and all, in 5 minutes. It was something I really needed to say to my Dad.”
It’s very different from last single In Your Head, which allowed fans to connect with the upbeat party tempo of the first album We’re All In This Together.
The heart-wrenching new video (below) was directed by Gabby’s partner and producer, Stephen Ellis.
Filmed on location in the depths of Hampstead Heath, the video features Gabby’s actual father, Edward, alongside a captivating performance from Gabby.
“I wanted to make a real and emotional video,” says Gabby. “This song is a message for my Dad and I am so pleased that he could be in it. I found the whole experience of shooting and now watching it back very moving.”
