Dermot Kennedy releases video for 'Young & Free'
Words: Ellie Ward
Fresh from last weekend's Great Escape Festival, Dublin singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy announces his biggest European headline shows to date as well as the new video for his latest single ‘Young & Free’.
The video, which brings together all the cinematic glory the track commands, sees Kennedy embodying the spirit of the song and embarking on a road trip that meets a fiery ends; only adding to the weight and breadth of a song that’s already a live favourite.
Since the release of his critically acclaimed mixtape with Mike Dean (The Weeknd, Travis Scott, Kanye West) which featured lead single ‘Young & Free’ as well as Dean’s remix of ‘Moment’s Passed’, Dermot has amassed over 200 million streams worldwide and over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.
