Travie McCoy has released a video for his new single The Bridge, taken from his upcoming album NEVER SLEPT BETTER. The track features a collaboration with Elohim.
“The Bridge is a very important song for me but beyond a SONG”, says McCoy. “It’s a message to those going through tough times, especially with COVID, as well as the state of fear and extroversion we’ve been pushed into. I’ve always made a point to let my fans and kids that grew up with me and my music, that I’m RIGHT HERE WITH YOU. I feel like I’ve been very transparent through my music, so why would I stop now? 2020 was quite possibly the worst year of my life and I’m sure many others. The Bridge is basically me speaking to myself at one of my darkest times and giving others a light to know that they are NOT ALONE. I feel not only the song but the visual conveys that at the end of the day, I UNDERSTAND, and I’M HERE and always will be! I’m still as scared and sceptical as you are. I would love to give a huge shout out to my brother Trevor and the ASL community for being on my side to help bring awareness not only to what we’re going through but with what people with disabilities are going through as well. I’ve been burning bridges my whole life but now I feel like I’m building them.”
McCoy enlisted his longtime friend Trevor Shannon, a performer and video creator who performs and interprets songs into ASL (American Sign Language), to be part of the video.
“I’m a CODA (child of deaf adults),” explains Shannon. “My parents are deaf and ASL (American sign language) is the form of communication that we use together. Having deaf parents has always been a thing that I’ve held dear to me and I carry it with me every day. It’s the very reason I am the way I am, I honestly wouldn’t want to imagine my life any different.”
NEVER SLEPT BETTER is due for release on 15th July 2022 via Hopeless Records, available to pre-order HERE.
