Warner Music Canada recording artist Scott Helman begins his European tour with Vance Joy tonight with a show in Madrid. To celebrate the occasion, Scott has released the official video for his latest single, “Hang Ups.” The video was directed by Scott’s longtime collaborator Ben Knetchel and features Scott literally bouncing off the walls.

“‘Hang Ups’ was inspired by a FaceTime with my girlfriend which ended in a big fight,” Scott recalls. “Afterwards, I had an intense moment of anxiety, hoping I didn’t do too much damage. As someone with ADHD, I usually have 800 things going on in my brain at once. With the song, wanted to paint a picture of the feeing after a conversation where everything comes out wrong.”

“Hang Ups” along with the song “Dostoevsky” were recorded earlier this Fall with producer Thomas “Tawgs” Salter who also produced Scott’s debut EP Augusta and fell-length album Hôtel De Ville. The third song, “Lifeguard” was produced by Brian Howes and Jason Van Poederooyen (Mother Mother, Simple Plan, Hinder). All three songs are available to stream or download HERE.

Earlier this summer, Scott Helman joined Vance Joy on five Canadian tour dates. The acts hit it off so well that before the final date, Vance had asked Scott to join him in Europe this fall. Immediately following the Vance Joy European tour, Scott returns to North America for a headlining club tour in the United States. Full itinerary below.
