Jedward announced during their interview yesterday on ITVs ‘Lorraine’ that they would be releasing their song, ‘Extraordinary’, as a single next month. The track has been the firm fan favourite from Jedward’s ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ album, since its release last year, via Universal.
The excitement started when the duo posted on their Instagram story that they would be sharing clips from their new video on ‘Lorraine’. While initially it was expected they were referring to the video for their latest single, ‘Taste The Heat’, which came out less than two weeks ago, fans soon realised that the music accompanying the clip was from ‘Extraordinary’, and understandably, were very happy indeed.
Jedward have been teasing this one for months now, starting with stills from the video all the way back in April:

Jedward tweeted a clip from the video last night, and the reaction, as you can imagine, was Extraordinary!

One fan said, “The rain, the darkness, the atmosphere, l could watch you forever”, while another said, “It’s in the title you are both Extraordinary! Can’t wait to see the whole video!”. Yet another declared, “WET WET WET & I don’t mean the band! It’s a seriously good song & this is looking brilliant!”
The video shows the duo with rain falling down on them, backlit by studio lights. It’s dark and moody, as they each declare their love for someone where they’re not sure the feelings are reciprocated, with lyrics such as,
“If you give me a chance
I’ll never let you go
But if you don’t then, that’s okay
At least I got this of my chest
Cause I would go insane if I never told you
I’m still hoping you say yes”
It’s moving and emotive, and the setting for the clip is a metaphoric match to the song, capturing that deep feeling of uncertainty experienced when you bravely put your heart out on the line without knowing truly if the other person will respond similarly.
No date has yet been given for the ‘Extraordinary’ single release, but in the meantime, ‘Taste The Heat’ is out now through Universal, and is available to stream and download on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play, and Amazon.
The ‘Taste The Heat’ video is out now on JedwardVEVO through Universal. You can download the video on Apple Music.
