Off the heels of an exciting summer from releasing Get To You which topped the CBC Music Top 20 charts and the incredibly powerful track 215 And Counting, to playing shows right across Canada, Jordan Hart is thrilled to be releasing more music this fall. His latest track, The End, is available to stream now and was premiered via CKUA yesterday morning. The lyric video was released today alongside the single, and can be viewed now.
Jordan combines his emotive vocals and exceptionally polished production in his newest single, The End, an anthemic folk song meant to entice a celebratory response from listeners perfect for capping off the summer. Featuring just a two person team (himself and Emily Schultz) on the track they create a powerful full-band soundscape, and by singing in different tones and pitches were able to present the undeniable energy of a full backing choir. The lyrical concept behind the track was Inspired by the trials and tribulations of family and friends having opposing political views. It was always Jordan’s dream that at the end of the song, people from all views and backgrounds come together and raise a glass while singing the last chorus “Hallelujah, I’ll get to ya in the end. Just give us time, you’ll be by my side in the end.”
The video reflects the narrator’s two frames of mind simultaneously. On the floor in a train station, reflecting on how hard the journey has been, and moving towards the camera with a hopeful energy in a bright, open cityscape. These two frames are spliced together to show the dichotomy of hope and despair in all of us and the different outcomes of our lives depending on which of these we choose to embrace. Jordan Hart and Emily Schutlz achieved the chaotic feeling of the city in this video by filming each performance publicly in slow motion, and speeding it up to match the rhythm and speed of the song.
