Billy Lockett has had a good start to 2018. Catching the world’s attention in summer last year he’s gone on to tour the country, expand his audience and earlier this month, sign a deal with Warner and East West Records. Cementing that success was most recent single ‘Empty House’, a dramatic hard-hitting anthem that saw Lockett embracing new elements of his sound, bringing in heavier instrumentation and elements of electronic music.

Today he’s sharing the new video for ‘Empty House’. Premiering on Notion, it’s an equally stirring affair, set in the wilds of the English countryside and shot in the style of a classic British drama. Directed by Ethan Graham, the visuals play on the regret and suspense of the track, leaving the viewer guessing at the cause of the tension. Speaking about the video Billy said “I truly love the video we’ve created, portraying an unconventional set of people all connected in different ways. Working with Ethan was inspiring, his attention to detail is next level and he nailed the vision for this track from the very start. Watching it all come to life over two days was amazing despite the freezing cold!”
