David Clayton-Thomas celebrates the everyday heroes of our current pandemic in his jazzy new single and video Long Night — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“This is a song for the unsung heroes,” explains the Grammy-winning Blood, Sweat & Tears frontman. “I wanted to say thank you to the paramedics, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, essential workers … I wanted to say thank you to all of the folks that put their lives on the line every day in dangerous and uncertain times.”
Long Night originally appeared on Clayton-Thomas’ widely acclaimed 2018 release Mobius — what was then the master songwriter’s first studio album featuring original songs in nearly a decade — and showcases the artist’s long-held respect and appreciation for those working tirelessly on the front lines. Earlier this year, he followed it up with the well-received topical offering Say Somethin’.
Clayton-Thomas is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and Canada’s Walk of Fame. His storied talents have sold more than 40 million records.
