An extended live version of Olly Murs's new single, performed at Rak Studios, is beautifully captured by Jack Lightfoot.

With an almost constantly roaming camera and reference to his fellow players of this acoustic version of Excuses, its ultimately a great showcase for Olly Murs's boldly heartfelt performance.


"[This is] Track one from our live session with Olly Murs. Shot at Rak Studios, we placed the band in the round to make full use of the space, moving around the performance with a stabiliser.

"I'm a particular fan of the colour scheme in the video, and how the texture of the walls and curtains at the studio are complemented by Olly's wardrobe."
