Hot off the heels of touring sold-out stadiums with icon P!NK on her record-breaking, 10th highest grossing tour of all time in UK and Europe, Yorkshire trio BANG BANG ROMEO release an explosive and heart-felt track titled ‘Love Yourself’ which features global artist EXAMPLE.
Example has a mammoth 15 UK Top 40 singles to his name, topping the charts with two #1 singles and a #1 album, Won’t Go Quietly.
Bang Bang Romeo went into the studio with EXAMPLE after meeting him at an event in London and with the chemistry between them all the song came together in a matter of hours. Example and Bang Bang Romeo filmed the video for “Love Yourself” in between their hectic schedules and across the Globe, with Example filming his parts from Australia and Bang Bang Romeo filming theirs backstage in stadiums across Europe.
The song is about the unconditional love that we show to others but rarely show ourselves. The track showcases the fiery vocals of front-woman Anastasia “Stars” Walker, reinforcing the message of self-love, body positivity and self-acceptance. To Stars, accepting, believing in and loving one’s self is paramount, she states:
“For whatever reason, the unconditional love we show to others we rarely show ourselves. If I could give my fiancée one gift it would be for her to see herself through my eyes. She’d never not love herself again. We all know someone who forgets to love themselves – this track is the reminder. It was brilliant working with Example on this track. Funny as f***, genuine geezer, and inspiringly talented”. – Stars, Bang Bang Romeo
Example echoes this sentiment:
“Love Yourself is one of my favourite songs of my career to date that I’ve been involved with. The message is so strong. Every one of us in the studio that day knew someone who had so much love to give others but had forgotten to love the most important person – themselves. The video came together just as easily as the song. Both are absolutely beautifully crafted pieces of art, art that came easily but also with an important message” – Example.
Bang Bang Romeo are releasing their much-anticipated debut album ‘A Heartbreaker’s Guide To The Galaxy‘ on 1st November via Eleven Seven Label Group. They perform their ‘Star Crossed Species’ headline tour throughout the UK & Ireland this Autumn with many dates already selling out.
