Today Kate Miller-Heidke released her new song. ‘This Is Not Forever’ is a deep emotional song that talks about depression and it how affects people. Kate Miller-Heidke represented Australia at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, and finished 9th.
Kate Miller-Heidke’s Eurovision entry Zero Gravity gave Australia their 4th Top 10 in a Grand Final. During this time in isolation, she has worked as the musical director for the APRA Music Awards. She has streamed a concert, and also had time to interact with her fans.
Kate shared a playlist of songs she recommends to deal with isolation. In addition to that, she has now released the song This Is Not Forever which talks about a close one dealing with depression, and how to help.
Here is my new single “This Is Not Forever”.
I wrote the song about six months ago, before all… this… happened. It’s about watching someone very close to you starting fall into a depression, and wanting to let them know that you’re there for them, in a very serious way.
Listening to it in these changed times, I feel it even more deeply than I did before. It seems like the right time to put it out.
The video, directed by Christiaan Van Vuuren, sees dancers trade the stage for their living rooms and backyards, both in isolation and connected motion. Each of the dancers were shot at home on their phone, under movement direction by choreographer Lucas Jervies.
I think it says something beautiful and profound about the ways we are finding each other, and staying connected, during an extraordinary period in our lives.
I hope you like “This Is Not Forever”….
