Aussie pop favourite Guy Sebastian has dropped the ‘Before I Go’ video, just as the single starts climbing the charts.
The song itself debuted at a lowly No.96 on last week’s ARIA singles chart, but is already starting to find its feet at iTunes (top 15 as we write) and at radio, where it’s now the sixth most played song on Australian radio.
So the arrival of the video comes at precisely the right time.
“This was the very first song I wrote when I sat down to start this new album and it says so much about what I was feeling at the time,” Guy said when the track dropped early last month. “In fact, the vocal is still the demo vocal from the writing session because it just felt honest.”
It’s an incredible vocal, there’s no denying; Guy seemingly drawing timbres from it that we can’t recall hearing before. And the song oozes with soul.
The clip follows the progress of a young man beaten down by bullies, before finding his inner strength and realising he can be absolutely anyone he wants to be – and he’ll succeed at anything he puts his mind to.
