Josh Middleton Releases New Video For His Single 'Stay'

By Press Release / Off The Press / Friday, 14 June 2019 09:19

Since the release of his debut single, You Know in November 2016, 16-year-old Johannesburg based  Josh Middleton has earned two #1 hits on radio stations across South Africa. He is regarded as one of the youngest artists to enter the Shazam Top 100 SA, peaking at Number 21 with his single Monster. In October 2018, Josh released his debut album Never Give Up which debuted at Number 3 on the (Pop) iTunes Top Charts. After the album’s success, Josh announced dates for his first UK and European Tour where he performed sold-out shows in Liverpool, London, Falmouth, Frankfurt, Paris, Zurich and Southampton.

For his new single Stay, Josh decided a change of musical direction was needed and has gone back to his singer-songwriter roots. The video reflects this perfectly as he explains, “It was time for me to strip things down and stay true to myself and my sound. I wanted the music video to be as simple as possible and not take away from the song.”

Director Brett Jones from Tall Creatives adds, “Getting to work with Josh on his latest music video was loads of fun once again. The church/chapel location was a dream to shoot in & the natural light gave us some beautiful shots. There is something striking about a lone figure in an empty space & I think that visually worked really nicely with the tone & feel of the song. Ultimately, we hope the video adds value to what is an already power track.”
