James Arthur has remained one of the most recognizable British songwriters in the world and apparently a force to reckon with. Amidst a ton load of controversies and addiction issues, his songs still attract millions of fans I included. The video to his new single tagged Empty Space is out and this time he has featured former Harry Potter actor Tom Felton. Just like all his videos, Empty Space is a deeply emotional song, themed on living with the thoughts of a lost a lover. Perhaps its more moving than his earlier release, Naked.
Credits to this song go to actors Felton and Rachel Kim Cross who play out the dramatic scenes in the video quite well. Andzej Gavriss directed the video with the help of Producers Carla Mooney and Delwyn Mooney. Since the audio’s launch last month, this song has been streamed for over 5 million times on Spotify not to mention a couple times more in other music streaming services.
The video alone crossed the 600K views on Youtube in Under a day and is produced by the Cardel Production company. Although it might not match up to Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go, the artist has remained proud of this particular song, sharing his sentiments on his Instagram page. The out of the box Stunts in this video were directed by Ian Eyre. Overall, the song has an awesome R&B vibe, it’s more of a Rock and RNB mashup. Pretty emotional though.
