Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON & ABERDEEN, Scotland - Jan 10, 2017 - Colin Clyne has released a poignant, cinematic and powerful music video for the song “Dunnottar Skies” from his critically acclaimed album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’. Clyne has earned accolades and countless awards on both sides of the Atlantic for the quality of his work which is steeped in Country, Americana and Folk. BBC Radio 2’s Bob Harris is amongst his supporters. The songs on ‘Pageant’ are an ethereal journey through all his musical styles. The culmination of an intense 2-year promotional campaign, Dunnottar Skies has been selected as the final single complete with video due to its cinematic potential. This breathtaking video will whisk you away to the stunning shores of North East Scotland. Set around the iconic Dunnottar Castle in the songwriter’s hometown of Stonehaven, long-term Clyne cohort and San Diego filmmaker Craig Rian weaves beauty, sadness and poignancy throughout this piece as he opts to communicate a heart stirring feeling of holding onto the light whilst drenched in darkness.
“‘Dunnottar Skies’ was one of my favorite moments whilst making the album,” said Clyne. “There’s a magic to it that was felt by everyone involved from the demo to the final version that adorns the album.” Comparisons have naturally been drawn with the work of Elton John, David Gray and Coldplay. The song is placed in a more mainstream sound rather than the Americana and Country leanings found on the remainder of the album. Dunnottar Skies is beautifully written and is wonderfully colored with piano, strings and the backing vocals from renowned Gaelic singer and Royal National Mod Gold Medalist Margaret Stewart. The Never Ending Pageant was produced by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Alan Sanderson (The Stones, Elton John, Ryan Adams, Burt Bacharach), with work being undertaken on it in San Diego, San Francisco (California) and Nairn (Scotland).
