Emeli Sandé 'Brighter Days' by Lewis Cater

Rob Ulitski - 25th Jan 2022

Emeli Sandé spreads the love in Lewis Cater's uplifting promo for Brighter Days. 

Radiating an unabashedly positive energy, we see Sandé perform at a piano in the middle of a grand building, which has been overtaken by nature. 

As the video progresses, plants come to life and flourish in the building, representing a rebirth of sorts, and the promise of better days ahead. 

The seamless visual effects add stylish flair to the project - Lewis Cater's second promo for Emeli Sandé following the video for Family last year -  while the singer's infectious energy will keep viewers hooked throughout.

"Stepping out of the darkness and into the light, this video is inspired by hope," says Cater. "It was an honour to work with Emeli again on this triumphant and uplifting track. This video is a reminder of our collective power. There is always hope. No matter how many times we lose sight."

And the song is a real earworm, so get ready for this to be the song in your head all week...
