New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Today multi-platinum selling rapper, Professor Green, has released the music video for new single, 'Photographs' featuring Rag'n'Bone Man.
Around the release of 'Photographs' Professor Green
called on fans to share photographs of loved ones they had lost and the stories behind these photographs with the accompanying hashtag #wishthatitookmorephotographsofus. The response was overwhelming and some of those fans who shared their photographs and stories, (Yvette, Fiona, Meg), feature in the Simon
Emmett directed music video alongside Professor Green, Rag'n'Bone Man
and Green's grandmother, Nanny Pat.
With the reception to 'Photographs' highlighting a need for this kind of dialogue around grief, Professor Green, alongside Cruse Bereavement Care, has launched a petition on Change.org calling on the government to nationally institute a National
Grief Awareness Day. A day on which people can publicly mourn and celebrate their lost loved ones, call for more education about grief, and promote a proper engagement with the effects of grieving.
Produced by Fraser T Smith, TMS and Chris Loco, co-written with Emeli Warren and featuring the vocals from the inimitable Rag'n'Bone Man, 'Photographs' was premiered by Annie
Mac on Radio
1 and is available across all platforms now.
