Shotty Horroh releases the official music video for his latest single “Frank & Stein,”.
The video for “Frank & Stein” follows a character played by actor Ciarán Griffiths (known for playing Mickey McGuire on the UK show Shameless), and acts as a sequel to the video for the track “Danger,” both of which were filmed in Manchester, United Kingdom, where Shotty Horroh grew up. The videos were directed by Ben Hulston and Delroy Pottinger, and incorporate a central theme of showcasing life as seen through the eyes of those living within a British council estate. The video, which premiered on NME.com earlier this week, comes off the heels of the release of his album Salt of the Earth (out October 12, via Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc.)

On the meaning behind “Frank & Stein,” Shotty details: “Frank & Stein is about stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something you may view as scary or daunting, it’s about conquering fear to get what you want. It was inspired by a man called David Goggins, his story had me in a ‘go for broke, push it to the limits’ mind state. Goggins said he created a more mean, powerful him in his mind which lead to his success, hence the Frankenstein reference.” “Frank & Stein” was written and recorded in Toronto, Canada, and is the fourth single off Salt of the Earth, following “Danger,” “Dirty Old Town,” and “Shudehill.” Shotty Horroh performed to a sold-out crowd at the famous Molotow Club in Hamburg, Germany at Reeperbahn festival and fans can check out some behind-the-scenes footage from the show here.
