Scott Matthew - 'The Wish' - Video

posted at 03/13/2020

We are extremely happy to show you the new Scott Matthew single. 'The Wish' is the first song taken from the upcoming album 'Adorned' to be released May 15 via Glitterhouse Records.

The idea for making 'Adorned' was to take some of Scott Matthew's original songs and re-imagine them. To dress them up in finery and have them re-enter the world with a new found confidence and attitude. A make over of sound and intention. „They have been adorned“ says Scott. In close collaboration with the Los Angeles based producer Jens Gad (Enigma), Scott Matthew worked out ten amazing new versions of his all time classics.

The Wish is a song about the massacre in Orlando (June 12, 2016) when a single perpetrator invaded the Pulse club and shot 49 people dead, most of them members of the LGBTQ community. A few hours later Scott wrote the lyrics, expressing a sense of totalpowerlessness: „This is an assault against love / Still no-one helps, they just pray above / And I wish I could help / I wish I could have helped” he sings.

„The video for the song 'The Wish' is not only a homage to those who lost life in the PulseNightclub Massacre, but also an acknowledgment of the plague of senseless gun violence inthe USA. We did not use violence to demonstrate this, but rather dance and empty chairs tosymbolize the horror and sorrow these event have brought to the LGBTQ community. Filmedin the haunting beauty of the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, New York, thatsignifies the space that's left behind after tragedy and how we try and comprehend it.“ - Scott Matthew

The video was directed by Michael Shannon. Cinematography by Luke Ohlson. Scott Matthew will release his new album entitled 'Adorned' May 15 via Glitterhouse Records followed by extensive touring.
