For his latest video alt-country singer-songwriter Shane Nicholson has enlisted the help of Australian alt-rock royalty – the legendary Tim Rogers (You Am I). The track is “Weight of the World” lifted from Nicholson’s latest album Hell Breaks Loose and deals with some serious themes.
“Living with depression and anxiety is something that’s starting to be talked about, but needs to be discussed a lot more,” Shane Nicholson explains. “We need to open up not only about how depression affects the person suffering from it, but also everyone around them because they suffer enormously too. I’m hopeful that this song and video will help increase awareness and shine a light on these conditions – which are really just like any physical illness.”
“I was initially aroused by the invitation thinking I was to be Shane’s love interest, however to be his far less attractive alter-ego is no less of a joy,” Tim Rogers reflected on the video. “He’s a sweetheart with a healthy sense of the ridiculous. Which i admire greatly. Crown him.”
