Esteemed South African guitarist and songwriter Albert Frost has revealed the video for his latest single “Everlasting”. The track is a heartfelt ode to the ecstasy one feels from experiencing live music. While not written specifically with the world’s current situation in mind, it lends itself to the feeling most fans and musicians are experiencing now.
Albert Frost explains “Everlasting”
“The main sentiment behind the song is that sense of camaraderie and belonging that people get from being part of a crowd at a venue or festival, and never wanting to let go of that feeling.”
