Former X Factor winner Ben Haenow has shared the official video for his first independently released single ‘Alive’.
In the promotional clip, Ben invites the world to witness his phenomenal skills as a live performer. The 32-year-old is renowned for his captivating stage presence and his new video proves, once again, that he is a true showman at heart.
Ben filmed the performance-based visuals for ‘Alive’ at Fu Manchu in London last month. It was a truly special night. The charismatic singer had his band firmly at his side and many of his loyal fans were in attendance.
Speaking about the video shoot, Ben said:
“Making the video was great fun. It was really nice to have my bro with me, though he’s no Kelly Clarkson lol. We filled the club with smoke. At most points, we couldn’t see the cameras so it just felt like a performance.
Obviously as it’s the first single and video since going independent, and my sound has developed and changed a fair bit from the first album, the video feels a bit more gritty and edgy which kind of felt more natural. No gimmicks, no huge budget and no running through streets (which I’m grateful for as I’m getting on a bit) so it was just me and the band. Having the fans there was a real buzz too and, for me, it felt like being part of something special.”
‘Alive’ was released last month to great acclaim. With the music video now online for everyone to see, the profound track is enjoying a new lease of life. The single is the first song to be lifted from Ben’s forthcoming EP which will be released later this year.
In celebration of his new material, Ben Haenow will be touring the UK again this December. The gifted vocalist will be joined on stage by his: guitarist Alex Haenow, keys player Daf Evan and drummer Tommy Sugar. Standard tickets and limited VIP passes for The Rising Tour are available here.
With lots of gigs planned and more new music on its way this year, Ben Haenow is continuing to prove that he’s one of the most talented musicians in the industry. The newlywed singer has never felt so alive.
