Colin Armstrong Debuts Music Video For Single “Hey Yoko”
Award winning artist Colin Armstrong is set to premiere his music video for the single "Hey Yoko" off his debut full length album "Lost and Anonymous" exclusively on the TV-centric music discovery site LP33.TV Wednesday, December 17, 2008. The video was shot on location in Malibu and Zuma Beach in Southern California, and is directed by Danny Gosser, and produced by Mikal Reid.
"Lost and Anonymous, " produced and mixed by Mikal Reid (Mick Jagger, Ben Harper, Aerosmith, Wang Chung) is set to be released January 13, 2009. "Hey Yoko" is the first single off the album, and has already been making waves throughout the music industry with its themes of change at a politically vulnerable time in the U.S. and hopeful references to the great John Lennon.
"I have had a vision for this video from the minute we finished the song and I am so happy it will be debuting on LP33, " says Colin. "It is exciting to see what the reaction will be now that an image and a message has been put to the music. Hopefully it will start a healthy conversation. The song is meant to get people thinking, that's for certain."
Colin Armstrong chose to exclusively debut "Hey Yoko" on LP33.TV, a website that combines the experience of watching exciting, fresh and entertaining indie music TV with the ability to share a fan's favorite content with friends through their preferred social networks. The site offers the perfect way to discover, experience, and share new music on the web, while also serving as a hub for music fans, musicians, and music industry insiders.
The album "Lost and Anonymous" will be available for purchase on January 13, 2009 through iTunes and Rithmetic Records. Colin Armstrong also plans on playing shows throughout Southern California in 2009 to promote his new album.
A native of San Diego, Colin Armstrong is not just a rock singer/songwriter- he is also a world-class bagpiper. Colin's first break came when he won the "BE A STAR" contest on Los Angeles' leading rock radio station STAR 98.7. The victory landed him a demo deal with Hollywood Records. Although he was excited to garner a development deal with a prominent label, he didn't feel like the time was right—so he passed. In the meantime, Colin's song "Lonely Fall" won "Best Male Vocal" and "Best Song" at the San Diego Music Awards followed by a "Best Pop Vocal" nomination for his song "Hey Yoko" at the Los Angeles Music Awards. His song "In Your Eyes" was also chosen for the top ten finals of the 2007 American Idol songwriter contest. It didn't end here; early 2008 brought Colin a worldwide publishing agreement with NorthStar Media who placed one of his songs, "Nothing More to Say" on the hit Lifetime network show "Army Wives."
