Singer/songwriter Michael Baker is back with a brand new single ‘Revolving Doors’ and here at HTF we are delighted to be premiering the accompanying video.
‘Revolving Doors’ has been lifted from Michael‘s debut album Dust & Bone, which was released last year. The video is a touching, one-shot creation from award-winning director Gary Roberts, which is based on the concept of someone’s life flashing before their eyes in their final moments.
Actress Kara Lily Hayworth‘s solo performance is truly captivating as she takes the viewer on a journey; watching her life unfold as she is sat in the cinema. Experiencing a whole range of emotions, she soon realises she’s in limbo when she witnesses the man she loves hold her hand as she passes away. This moving story was inspired by Leonard Cohen’s quote “You go your way, I’ll go your way too”, which can be seen at the start of the video. With the passing of Cohen since the video was shot back in October, it feels extremely poignant and reinforces the video’s theme of love and how it always seems to return, even in the darkest situations.
Michael will be playing a headline show at The Finsbury in London on 21st March, where he will be performing ‘Revolving Doors’ and many more of his heartfelt songs from Dust & Bone.
