Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Calum Scott premieres his emotionally empowered new single and video “If You Ever Change Your Mind.” A bittersweet but uplifting reflection on a painful relationship, “If You Ever Change Your Mind” is the third song that Calum has shared from his highly anticipated sophomore album, due out this spring. Listen to “If You Ever Change Your Mind” HERE and watch the video HERE.
Produced by eight-time GRAMMY Award® winner Greg Kurstin (Paul McCartney, Elton John, Adele), “If You Ever Change Your Mind” opens on a gorgeously stark vocal performance from Calum, accompanied only by wistful piano work. As the track unfolds and its commanding rhythms kick in, Calum looks back on a broken romance with both regret and renewed perspective (from the pre-chorus: “I pulled away ’cause the pain’s too strong/And you were saying that we don’t belong”). Co-written by Calum, “If You Ever Change Your Mind” ultimately builds an irresistible tension between his never-ending affection and newly heightened sense of self-worth.
Says Calum, “Five years ago, I fell in love so hard that ever since we parted ways, there has been an invisible tether between us, sometimes existing silently, other times pulling on me like a rope attached to my chest. I got together with Mozella and Hayley Warner in LA to write this one and had the pleasure of working with the legend, Greg Kurstin on track and vocals. I really enjoyed stepping into a new sound with Greg on this song – I feel we struck the balance of lyrics that tell the story of heartbreak and conflict but maintain a hopeful and reminiscent sound that makes this song feel so good!”
Directed by Harry Law, the video for “If You Ever Change Your Mind” beautifully dramatises the song’s narrative of longing and conflicted emotion. To that end, the visual centers on an estranged couple engaged in an intense push-and-pull — an element perfectly captured in the video’s meditative and endlessly mesmerising choreography.
Calum recently appeared as a featured artist on Lost Frequencies’ “Where Are You Now” — a July release that’s now amassed over 250 million streams worldwide.
“If You Ever Change Your Mind” arrives on the heels Calum’s recent single “Rise,” a wildly soaring track whose video features a captivating performance from British actor Georgia Hirst (known for her role on the acclaimed historical drama “Vikings”).
