Christine Campbell is spreading her wings on the high-flying video for her new single Butterfly — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist!
“This song means a lot to me,” the P.E.I. singer-songwriter explains. “I was going to recap my memories on bullying but instead took the positive approach and focused on watching a beautiful transformation from a cocoon to a butterfly, or more specifically a badass white moth. This song is about being whatever you believe yourself to be despite the assholes that really drive home that you’re something else.
“Of course, I want people to like what I create,” she says. “I’m an artist. I get insecure, to say the least, but once I kick my ego to the side where it belongs, I know that I love this video, it speaks to me, and that’s what matters. This song is about my own experiences with bullying and overcoming some pretty intense feelings of incompetence and ugliness. So to actually be spearheading such a huge production of a beautiful artistic transformation. It’s an amazing personal milestone for me.”
Produced and co-written by rapper Classified, Butterfly is the latest single from her 2017 album Roller Coaster. The disc offers a true representation of her diverse influences — from hard rock and ’70’s rock to roots and blues — and traces the narrative of a small-town girl who has become a powerful performer known for her mastery of guitar and piano in addition to her powerful vocals.
