Hot Hot Heat released their latest music video for “Kid Who Stays In The Picture,” a track from their upcoming album, which is due in June.
Frontman Steve Bays says he wrote the song about an old friend of his.
“[It] is about my best friend from childhood, who seemed clearly destined for fame,” Bays said. “He was the best singer, actor, comedian, athlete . . . you name it. But as we grew up, I watched his laughter fade to seriousness as ‘real life’ eroded his sense of humour and wonder.”
He continued, “He inadvertently taught me the importance of fighting to stay young at heart and holding onto your innocence for as long as you can, because once it’s gone, it’s gone. The lyrics are a bit of a mantra to stay hungry and passionate about selfish interests, so your conscious mind stays self aware and doesn’t get eaten up by the subconscious mind’s potentially lazy sense of doom.”
The band released their debut, Make Up The Breakdown, 14 years ago.
