Bishop Briggs releases new track “Tattooed On My Heart” today via Island Records along with another brand-new video and North American and European headline tour announcement (Full routing below). The video for “Tattooed On My Heart” (directed by Tim Mattia, known for his work with The 1975 and Twenty One Pilots) continues the story of the “Champion” video, diving deeper into the healing process of any relationship, symbolically represented by the heart Bishop is seeking to take back. Produced by Jonny Coffer (Beyoncé, Panic! at the Disco, Emeli Sandé) and written with John Newman (Calvin Harris, Rudimental), “Tattooed On My Heart” slips from handclaps and hummable piano into a heartfelt gospel chant: “I wish I didn’t get your name tattooed on my heart.

“I have lots of tattoos – too many to count. I have tattoos that remind me of him or tattoos we got together but I truly don’t regret any of them. Seeing them on my body brings back countless memories and lessons – they’re reminders of my being.
But the one tattoo that feels different than all of the ones on the outside is the one sitting on my heart and this thought process is where my new song, “Tattooed On My Heart”, was born. I’m still waiting for the day that it’ll begin to dissolve but for now, I’ll just sing about it.
The video for this song is a continuation of my video for “Champion” that came out last week. It gives a little backstory to why I had to beat up all the bad guys in “Champion” and shows the process of healing. I am so beyond excited to share this with you and thank you for taking the time to watch and listen!” – Bishop Briggs
