This past February, Copywrite released God Save The King, which wound up being not only some of his most personal work to date but also some of his most critically acclaimed. Now, on August 7th, Copy will team back up with his label Man Bites Dog Records for the worldwide release of God Save The King: Proper English Version. The album will include a handful of new exclusives, in addition to a number of remixes of God Save The King standouts, featuring a collection of the UK’s biggest rappers, a list that includes Context, Dru Blu, Mystro, SAS, Akala, Iron Braydz, and more.
Today, Copywrite is excited to release a video for the album’s latest single, “More Sorrow” which features Copywrite’s childhood friend Illogic. For fans of God Save The King, the song’s title will sound familiar – “Sorrow” was one of the album’s standout tracks, as Copywrite used the song to deal with recent loss. “More Sorrow” is in dedication to Copywrite’s grandmother, and the song was written and recorded the same night that she passed away, minutes before Copywrite was able to get to the hospital. “Walked in the hospital room, you were already gone,” raps Copywrite, reliving the events of the evening. “I kissed you on your forehead and held your sweaty palm.”
The song is produced by Stu Bangas, who, together with Vanderslice, will release Diggaz With Attitude on August 28th, and it was Stu’s beat that brought the pain and emotion out. The song is not all gloomy thoughts, though, as Copywrite turns towards his faith for resolution. “The song still has a triumphant vibe to it,” explains Copywrite, “which is why I decided to talk about Jesus. This life is a Rubix Cube, but there is a way out of it and to be victorious.”
The video, directed by R.M.L., initially incorporated a narrative structure, but Copywrite and the director later decided to stray from that narrative in favor of a more raw and interpersonal display of emotion. The result is a video that allows Copywrite to command the viewer’s attention, while putting the emphasis on Copy’s lyrics.
