The Used took to a very special project when they asked fans last month to submit videos of frontline fighters, “Every day you wake up and leave your loved ones to fight to keep us safe. We want to showcase them in our new music video.” The band has since unveiled their music video for “The Lighthouse (feat. Mark Hoppus)”, which features Nurses, Doctors, First Responders, Gas Station Attendants, Grocery Store Clerks, Delivery People and other Essential Workers, as well as, members of The Used and Mark Hoppus at home with their families. The single is featured on the band’s recently released eighth studio album, Heartwork.
Watch the video of this beautiful tribute to people tirelessly working through these unprecedented times:
Speaking to the message behind the track, front man Bert McCracken shared the following message:
“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” – William Shakespeare
Doubt can be an avalanche. It can cascade out and infect everything it touches. Inspiration is also infectious. The original chorus lyric was “I can’t be your lighthouse”, until I was reminded by my 6 year old daughter that I can be and I am. It helps to remember that we all have the capability to inspire someone in our own way. Please enjoy our song The Lighthouse as much as we do. Love, Bert
