Jess Glynne's Emotional "Take Me Home" Video Will Totally Make You Cry — VIDEO
If you're already familiar with Jess Glynne's music, then you likely already understand just how emotional every single one of her songs can be. That's not to say that they're all sad; in fact, many are downright joyful, while others are full of longing, love, and heartbreak. Glynne's new single, "Take Me Home", is a combination of all three, focusing on the difficulties of being vulnerable when life seems a little too crazy and you need someone by your side to hold your hand and help you through to the other side. It's exactly that which not only led Glynne to write the song, but to release an equally intense (and beautiful) video for it.
Writing on her Facebook page, Glynne shared that she is "pleased and nervous" that fans are finally able to see the "Take Me Home" video, which is very close to her heart. "It’s an emotional song for me and I have to admit it brought me to tears filming the video, not because I was sad but because I was so grateful that I had someone to get me out of the dark hole I was in," she explained. The emotion behind the track definitely comes through, that's for sure.
Taken from her debut album I Cry When I Laugh, "Take Me Home" is yet another track inspired by her relationship — and subsequent "sh*t breakup" — with her ex-girlfriend, and definitely the deepest and most touching on the record. After all, who among us can't relate to the idea of falling apart and desperately needing someone to help put you back together again. It's not always easy to ask for help, but the relief you experience once you do ask for it and actually get it is amazing.
"Take Me Home" is just the latest example of Glynne's incredible talent both as a vocalist and as a songwriter, and a sign of more great things to come from her. Finding an artist that's so open and raw with their own experiences, good and bad, is always incredibly refreshing, and we're lucky to have Glynne in the music world at the moment. Hopefully, she's here to stay, because we need more singers like her.
