During a hugely successful promo trip to Brazil in June, wherever Melanie went her fans were clamouring for the song “Room For Love”. It soon became apparent that this was massive fan favourite when Melanie and her acoustic band performed an improvised version for the first time at a fan event while everyone in the room sang every word back to her.
The idea for the video came from the same place. Why not ask the fans, who love the song so much, to make their own versions of the video? Melanie and her team then chose their favourite clips, bringing them together with fan footage of Melanie performing the song and some great social media themed graphics.
A few of Melanie’s old friends got involved too – keep an eye out for Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Natalie Imbruglia and KT Tunstall’s clips in the video!
Taken from Melanie’s new Top 25 album ‘Version of Me’, the anthemic ‘Room For Love’ follows the emotional single ‘Hold On’ and was co-written with Olaniyi Michael Akinkumni, Mo Samuels and Varren Wade and produced by SOS Music.
Recorded in LA and London, ‘Version Of Me’ is a richly textured, lushly atmospheric, deeply personal album which lays bare her life over beats, shimmering synths, striking percussion and strings. It’s Melanie as you’ve always known her – adventurous, honest, infectiously pop – but as you’ve never heard her before.
