The video has just been released for New Hope Club’s latest song, ‘Good Day’, which features on the new film from Aardman and STUDIOCANAL, ‘Early Man’. In the video the trio are seen in a cinema after closing time, getting up to mischief and performing in front of a screen upon which ‘Early Man’ is being projected.
‘Good Day’ is upbeat and anthemic, and showcases their harmonies and and skilled musicianship. Another track featured on the soundtrack is their cover of the classic Mud song, ‘Tiger Feet’. Both ‘Good Day’ and ‘Tiger Feet’ were produced by The Vamps’ Brad Simpson.
‘Early Man’ is a prehistoric comedy adventure film, made by four-time Academy Award winning director Nick Park, and Aardman, best known for their creations ‘Wallace And Gromit’ and ‘Shaun The Sheep’. The film is set at the dawn of time, where prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, and tells the story of caveman hero Dug, voiced by Eddie Redmayne, and his best friend Hognob, as they set out to unite the tribe and save their home from a mighty enemy, Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age city. ‘Early Man’ will be released in cinemas across the UK on 26 January.
‘Early Man’ had its world premiere at BFI IMAX last weekend, and New Hope Club joined stars of the voice cast, including Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, and Eddie Redmayne, among others. NHC performed ‘Good Day’, ‘Tiger Feet’, and their original single, ‘Fixed’, at the official afterparty.
New Hope Club last year released their debut EP, ‘Welcome To The Club’, which shot to the number 1 spot in the iTunes Pre-Order Chart as soon as it was announced, and stayed there for 3 days, nudging out both Kasabian and Harry Styles. It also reached the Number 2 spot in the iTunes chart, and into the top five in no fewer than 10 countries.
New Hope Club were discovered by The Vamps, who signed them to their label, Steady Records, an imprint of Virgin EMI UK. The Vamps have continued to work closely with the guys, helping to develop their sound, as well as taking them on tour. New Hope Club have also partnered with Hollywood Records to release their EP in the USA. The label has been responsible for helping break artists such as Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, and Miley Cyrus.
