A month ago, The Used ushered for fans to submit videos of their “frontline fighters” to be featured in a special music video, which they revealed today as their official music video for, “The Lighthouse” which also features blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus. The band’s latest music video features nurses, doctors, first responders, gas station attendants, grocery store clerks, delivery people, and other essential workers as well as members of The Used and Mark Hoppus.
Speaking behind the message of “The Lighthouse,” frontman Bert McCracken shared; “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves” – William Shakespeare. Doubt can be an avalanche. It can cascade out and infect everything it touches. Inspiration is also infectious. The original chorus lyric was “I can’t be your lighthouse,” until I was reminded by my 6-year-old daughter that I can be and I am. It helps to remember that we all have the capability to inspire someone in our own way. Please enjoy our song “The Lighthouse” as much as we do. Love, Bert.”
A beautiful tribute to everyone working to keep the world safe and moving through unprecedented times.
“The Lighthouse feat. Mark Hoppus” comes from the band’s recently released eighth studio album, Heartwork, which was released last month via Big Noise.
