Dan Reed Network Drop Knowledge On Music Video For New Single ‘Champion’

Written by Jack Andrew Cribb

To coincide with their current UK and European tour, rockers Dan Reed Network have released a music video to go with their upbeat anthemic single Champion. This is a track from their recently released album Fight Another Day, the latest since their previous work Breathless, released in 2010.

“Champion deals with the concept that we are what we eat, not just our physical health but our soul’s well-being,” says Dan Reed. “It’s about surrounding ourselves with people that feed our dreams, support and push us to be more creative, more alive, and to enjoy the ride.”

The song itself is pretty inspiring, with lyrics such as ‘I wanna be your champion/ and ride off into the sun/ and never fade away/ and live to fight another day’ combined with an uplifting melodic chorus. The video itself is very emblematic of this, as the band play in front of large screens that flit from pictures of different people. It’s all quite captivating.

“The video portrays the intensity in the eyes of people from every walk of life. Having the band performing in front of the rear projected screens was to immerse those of us who wrote and will be performing this song live to visually state we all live in this bubble of light where every person we meet brings new insights, lessons, strength, and if we’re lucky, wisdom.”
