Singer and songwriter Marshall Potts released his new album That’s How It Starts recently, and “Hearts In The Sky” is his latest single that features a very personal connection for the video.
The Kamploops, BC artist shot the video for “Hearts In The Sky” in a Spanish town as a way of bringing things back to his family.
“It’s a Universe thing,” Potts explained. “My mum passed in 2013. She succumbed to cancer like so many of us these days. When I was thinking of a destination for the video I thought of where she would want to go. She always felt a connection to Spain, ironically for a woman raised in Salford, Manchester, or perhaps not really considering how life seems to work.”
“I knew she would choose Spain. In particular Sitges, a town about 35 kilometers southwest of Barcelona, in Catalonia. It has this old world feel and is sleepy compared to bustling Barcelona.”
Potts said, “I wanted an ethereal feel to the music video and in the early hours of the morning, while the locals and visitors slept, we shot the footage and returned later that evening at sunset to capture the sunset scenes.”
“It’s about two souls crossing paths, a chance meeting where two become one. It’s about not searching for what we all crave most and in that empty space love finds it’s way.”
