SINGER/ SONGWRITER Emma Langford has released a new video for her song ‘Tug O’War’. The video was made by Kate Laver featuring actress Nanci Cruz in a biographical account of the inspiration behind the song.
Tug O’War was written in a frenzied burst of inspiration in 2016 when Emma was about to throw in the towel and was having serious doubts about pursuing a career in music.
The track was recorded in one take and uploaded to YouTube. Tug O’War’s success launched her unexpectedly into the hearts and minds of strangers around the world.
Tug O’War is now re-released and coincides with Emma’s Irish and European tour, giving the tune once again its own chance to shine. Also on release is a nifty remix of the same track by Northern Irish electronic artist Arvo Party.
Says Emma, “I’m looking forward to sending Tug O’ War out into the world again – this song for me is a constant reminder of how far I’ve come, and why I’m in the music business, to share stories and connect with people.”
“The song is about not letting the little voice of anxiety inside your head stop you from brazenly going forth and reaching your potential.”
Emma’s debut album ‘Quiet Giant’ is out now for stream/download on bandcamp.com. It is also available on limited 12” vinyl exclusively at Steamboat Music and at Emma’s live gigs.
