New Video for 'Bring You Here' And southern adventures for ed bahonie

For the new video for 'Bring You Here' coming out this wednesday, Ed is taking on the role of an urban apostle. The song is about the bridging of distances - to loved ones, to strangers. Bahonie ponders the possibilities – what should he say, and what should he leave out? For the accompanying video Ed Bahonie renewed his collaboration with artist Victor Engbers and involved animator Nils Mühlenbruch. The outcome is a rather hallucinatory image – Ed truly becomes an urban apostle. The release of “Bring You Here” marks the start of a period of southern explorations. The subject of bridging distance becomes very tangible as Bahonie moves to live in a tiny village in the land that brought forth Italo Disco. There he will write new material – some of it in languages previously unsung by Ed Bahonie. Meanwhile a next release - featuring a group of talented young dancers from Barcelona and directed by Iris Jacobs - is already in preparation
