We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those that submitted their voices and uplifting messages for use in this song. In the end we received close to 1000 submissions! We listened to each and every one in the studio, a deeply emotional experience that will certainly stay with us forever. Thank you all - this process has been pure magic and ultimately exactly what all this music stuff is all about… to quote two fans directly: “There is still good in the world” and “The sun never sets on your dream”...
To all those that dug deep and provided the insane video footage that this video is built from - THANK YOU. When we started to watch the submissions, we were seriously taken aback. We had no idea it would prove to be such a deeply emotional experience to witness so many people setting aside their weekends, cobbling together outfits and props and generally unleashing their creativity in insanely imaginative ways, and all to pay tribute to these golden cinematic moments that are so close to all our hearts.
These shared experiences and memories really bring people together, and recreating these scenes has been a great way to connect our fans with each other and with us. Our song is called ‘When You Grow Up, Your Heart Dies’, but I think you guys have proven that they are fighting the good fight against that eventuality pretty hard! On another note, we also got sent some seriously weird sh*t… I guess some people like to share a little too much! Hahaha!”
