Ever since his release at the start of the year, ‘Fly Away’, we’ve been waiting for the return of Zight and he does not disappoint. The Hong Kong talent makes his return to the release radar alongside London-based vocalist Peter Forest for their motivational new track ‘Everybody Keep Running’. Accompanying the release is the an official music video, featuring Adidas-sponsored South African athlete Sibusiso Madikizela.
The uplifting track is rife with energy from the first beat, with encouraging lyrics paired in perfect synergy with the positive melody. Twinkling synths support the bouncing, feel-good bassline which is accompanied by a powerful piano chord. Peter Forest’s striking vocals stand at the core of the track, aiding a slow build that intensifies to reveal a burst of sonic synths and a powerful drop. ‘Everybody Keep Running’ is the perfect addition to any workout playlist, willing you on when you need it the most.
Supporting the motivational message of the track, the accompanying music video maintains the same narrative. Starring Sibusiso Madikizela, a professional marathon athlete from Cape Town, the Commonwealth, and Olympic hopeful serves as the perfect role model to portray the promising message. The story depicted in the music video is about a marathon runner, running across the whole country continuously for 2 days, looking for the holy place as his goal. Displaying the beautiful scenery of Cape Town and the seemingly effortless composure of Sibusiso, the video is the encouragement we all needed to push ourselves.
“With all my music I want to uplift people and make them feel better. I was inspired by the athletes, especially the runners who came to the Olympics despite the global pandemic and competed for their countries and for the world. ‘Everybody Keep Running’ is for everyone who has had a tough couple of years – if we just keep running and trying, we’ll get through it.” – Zight
