WATCH: Dermot Kennedy lights up the streets of New York in his new video

'Lost' and found.

Taking to New York streets at night, armed with trenchcoat, hoodie and unpolished vocal, Dermot Kennedy cues up the video for 'Lost' before the track sweeps in.


'Lost' first arrived in February, further enhancing the Dublin native's reputation for a most bruising brand of singer-songwriter-focused pop.

Kennedy is a major Irish success story, regularly selling out venues at home and abroad, featuring on the likes of The Ellen Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and NPR's superb Tiny Desk series in recent months, with a debut album still yet unannounced.

That's coming, though, and you expect it to be a pretty big deal.

For now, we have the visual for 'Lost', which taps into the heart of Kennedy's words as it follows the lives of different individuals going through tough times, looking to loved ones for hope.


"It's a song I wrote about resilience and reliance," says Kennedy.

"Bad things can happen and when they do, when you’re tested; you’re going to need the love and the shelter of certain people to hold you up and guide you through whatever storm you find yourself in.

"It’s about holding each other up through bad times.”

Currently in the midst of a world tour, Kennedy returns home for a string of dates at Dublin's hallowed Olympia Theatre in mid-May, but hopefully you got tickets long ago as they're all sold out.


If not, perhaps the 'Lost' video will soften the blow.
